Italian defender Bastoni scored the first goal after half an hour, but Lazio captain Ciro Immobile equalized.
Milan Shkriniar scored the winning goal for Inter in the 67th minute after a cross from Bastoni, to make coach Simone Inzaghi his first victory against the team he led over five and a half years before coaching Inter.
Inter leads the league with 49 points, one point behind Milan, and coach Inzaghi’s team has one game postponed. Lazio comes eighth and has 32 points.
