MILAN (AFP) - Miroslav Klose struck a superb late winner as Lazio beat Inter Milan 1-0 at the Olympic Stadium on Saturday to indirectly boost Juventus's hopes of extending their lead before Christmas.

Inter started their 17th match of the campaign only four points behind champions Juve at the top of Serie A, however Andrea Stramaccioni's men were dominated throughout and missed several chances late on.

Stramaccioni's anger showed as he walked off the pitch following a fifth defeat of the campaign which means Juventus can now extend their lead over Inter to seven points if they beat Atalanta in Turin on Sunday.

"We absolutely did not deserve to lose," insisted Stramaccioni, despite admitting Lazio had dominated the opening half.
