Icardi scores four goals as Inter thrash Sampdoria

Mauro Icardi proved his worth for Inter Milan as they thumped Sampdoria 5-0 in Serie A

Second-placed Napoli can move to within two points of the leaders with nine games remaining if they beat Genoa at home this morning.

In the 72nd minute, Albiol deflected in a corner by the near post with his back to the goal.

"I would always want to have a player like Ivan in my team".

Mauro Icardi said scoring his 100th Serie A goal against former side Sampdoria was his "destiny" after leading Inter's 5-0 rout with a haul of four.

24 - Icardi has scored against 24 different Serie A clubs, only failing to find the net against six of the sides he has faced in the Italian top-flight.

180 - Icardi's 100 Serie A goals have come in 180 appearances, for a goals-per-game ratio of 0.56.

Mauro Icardi really knows how to stick the dagger into his former side Sampdoria and today he did it in ideal style with four goals against his old club, including a picture flawless backheel.

"I scored my first goal in the top flight here - it was destiny. Clearly it was in my destiny to reach 103 at Marassi".

Perisic put Inter ahead with a looping header 26 minutes in for his first goal since early December before Icardi took over.

The Argentina striker then fooled goalkeeper Emiliano Viviano and defender Gian Marco Ferrari with a splendid backheel goal. He then went on an unstoppable run and completed a hat-trick before half-time.

Patrick Cutrone equalized for Milan by turning in a rebound of a shot from Lucas Biglia.

Kessie missed a chance for a fourth from the spot.

Inter are now four points behind AS Roma whose third was consolidated by a 2-0 win at Crotone thanks to goals in either half from Stephan El Shaarawy and Radja Nainggolan.
