Serie A Football News – Correa Debuts in Verona 1 – 3 Inter
Samir Handanovic set up the match’s first goal with a poor pass towards Marcelo Brozovic, which Ivan Ilicic intercepted.
Ilicic, in turn, kept his cool to chip the goalkeeper into an empty net.
On 39 minutes, Inter had the ball in the net. Lautaro Martinez nudged Montip as he went to pluck it out of the air.
Later, after Zaccagni’s counter on another Brozovic error, Antonin Barak’s poor first touch let the Nerazzurri off the hook.
Inter equalized just 70 seconds after the restart, when Edin Dzeko flicked on a long Ivan Perisic throw. This allowed Lautaro Martinez to net a close-range header, anticipating Montip.
Dzeko deflected Marco Davide Faraoni’s header over from close range, but Inter nearly equalized with a similar goal. Only this time, Lautaro Martinez’s half-volley went wide of the goalpost.
Lautaro’s penalty appeals for a Martin Hongla challenge also faced rejection.
And Montip was at full stretch on Alessandro Bastoni’s angled drive.
Meanwhile, in this fixture, Joaquin Correa made his Inter debut for the final 17 minutes and scored the game-winning goal.
Matteo Darmian did well to keep Arturo Vidal’s pass in play and whip in a cross from the right. This set up Tucu’s towering header from 12 yards, which he guided into the top corner.
It got better for the Argentine, who finished his brace in stoppage time with a left-foot daisy-cutter from the D.
