Hello everyone. This is football (soccer). I don't understand the phrase "taking the lead role in term of" here. What does it actually mean?

72' Carvajal breaks down the
right, before trying to cause some problems with a cross, but Handanovic is able to claim at his near post after a touch from Juan Jesus. Inter are taking the lead role in terms of possession, with
Los Blancos sitting back in their shape and picking their moments to break.

    Inter are now the leaders as far as who has the most possession is concerned,
