The blossoming partnership between Romelu Lukaku and his strike partner Lautaro Martinez might deliver the title for Internazionale, according to James Richardson.
Richardson joined The Football Show on Tuesday to discuss all things Serie A, and attention turned to the burgeoning platonic love between Lukaku and the Argentine.
"It's interesting, because Inter is not necessarily an immediate fit for Romelu Lukaku. Certainly in terms of the ambience and the environment - that has not always been the easiest of arrivals," said Richardson.
Lukaku and Martinez: a match made in heaven?
"There were problems with racist abuse, Inter - by their own definition - are a crazy club. It is not an easy club to go to and have enormous success at. We have seen an awful lot of players go there and not succeed.
"I think the fact that what they are trying to do is simple suits Lukaku, and the fact that he has this partnership with Lautaro Martinez should not be underestimated.
"Martinez is one of these players that whoever plays with him tends to do extremely well. As well as being technically gifted, he is a generous player.
"That partnership, when it works [...] it really is a blessing for any team. It is not something that you can always programme, but it can make your season; it can make your title.
"Lukaku has always been a player that has had brilliant seasons before - he looked like an absolutely phenomenal player when he came through.
"I think that is what we are seeing again now. He has got a player alongside him who is the perfect feint for him."
Richardson outlined the yin and yang of Lukaku and Martinez with the florid prose that only he can muster, from those days touring the Italian peninsula.
