Inter Milan 7-1 Atalanta

Mauro Icardi
Mauro Icardi's hat-trick was the earliest for Inter in Serie A since Benito Lorenzi's treble in the opening 18 minutes in 1947

Mauro Icardi and Ever Banega each scored a hat-trick as Inter Milan thrashed Atalanta in Serie A.

Captain Icardi scored his goals between the 17th and 26th minutes - including a chipped penalty.

His fellow Argentine Banega scored twice in quick succession to make it 5-0 after 34 minutes.

Remo Freuler pulled one back before the break, with Roberto Gagliardini netting for Inter and Banega scoring a 25-yard free-kick to complete his triple.

Inter overtook Atalanta to move into fourth place in the league with the victory.

Elsewhere in Serie A, Napoli, who had 81% possession, beat Crotone 3-0. Lorenzo Insigne scored twice, either side of a Dries Mertens penalty.

Later in the day, Roma beat Palermo by the same scoreline to move back into second. Eden Dzeko scored his 30th goal of the season, with Stephan El Shaarawy and Bruno Peres also scoring.

Nikola Kalinic scored an injury-time winner as Fiorentina beat Cagliari 1-0. Chievo thrashed Empoli 4-0, Bologna beat Sassuolo 1-0 and Udinese won 3-1 at Pescara.
