Romelu Lukaku scores on Inter debut in Serie A defeat of Lecce

Romelu Lukaku scored on his debut as Internazionale beat Lecce 4-0 in Antonio Conte’s first game in charge.

Lukaku was making his first appearance since his £74m move from Manchester United in Inter’s opening game, at the San Siro.

Marcelo Brozovic and Stefano Sensi put the hosts in control in the first half and Antonio Candreva completed the scoring with a long-range strike after Diego Farias was dismissed for the visitors.

Brozovic opened the scoring after 21 minutes when he curled into the top corner from 25 yards.

Sensi doubled Inter’s lead three minutes later, skipping past two challenges and drilling into the bottom corner from the edge of the box.

Lukaku added the third after an hour, firing in after Gabriel could only parry Lautaro Martínez’s shot from 18 yards.

Substitute Farias was shown a straight red with 14 minutes left for a tackle from behind and Candreva added a fourth six minutes from time.
