MILAN – BELGIAN striker Romelu Lukaku has equaled a record set by Brazillian Ronald to score nine or more goals in the first eleven games in Serie A for Inter Milan.
Lukaku scored twice on Sunday as Inter Milan came from behind to beat Bologna 2-1.
Ronaldo did it in the 1997/98 season.
Lukaku converted a penalty in stoppage-time as Inter moved to the top of the table, albeit briefly as Juventus won the Derby della Mole against Torino.
Inter are the only side in Europe’s big-five leagues to have won every game they have played away from home so far this season.
Lukaku has begun the season in fine form after struggling for Manchester United last year.
Ronaldo was named Serie A Footballer of the Year in 1998 and finished the season in question with 25 league goals.
Inter Milan play Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Tuesday.
