FULL TIME – Verona 1-3 Inter
A dream debut for Joaquin Correa, who came off the bench to score Inter’s second and third after Lautaro Martinez had levelled for Simone Inzaghi’s side. Verona can take some positives despite Eusebio Di Francesco’s side suffering another defeat.
Minute 94 – INTER SCORE! 1-3!
Joaquin Correa with his second! What a debut this is! This time he picks the ball up in space on the edge of the box, spins, and places a low shot into the corner.
Minute 83 – INTER SCORE! 1-2!
Joaquin Correa on his debut! He’s surely headed in Inter’s winner. What a start for him at his new club. Inzaghi is loving it, too. He’s gone straight into the corner to celebrate with his forward.
Minute 66 – Bastoni goes close
Bastoni takes his turn to test Montipo, forcing the goalkeeper into an excellent low save with a left-footed drive across goal.
Minute 55 – Huge Inter chance!
It should be 2-1 to Inter. Montipo is fuming and rightly so. Another straightforward long throw from the left again finds Dzeko, who again flicks on for Lautaro. The Argentine, though, sends a volley just wide of the post. Verona have to wake up.
Minute 47 – INTER SCORE! 1-1!
Well, how’s that for a response? A long throw into the box is flicked on by Dzeko and Lautaro is there to get the second header, beating Montipo to level.
Second half underway
We’re back up and running in Verona. Inter desperately need to improve on their first half.
HALF TIME – Verona 1-0 Inter
Verona go in at the break with a narrow lead, and it’s hard to argue against them deserving their advantage. Di Francesco will be very pleased, but Inter have been their own worst enemies this evening.
Minute 39 – Inter have the ball in the net, but..
Perisic heads towards goal and Lautaro challenges Montipo. The ball goes through the goalkeepers hands into the net, but a foul is given.
Minute 33 – A bit of aggression
Barella is fouled and loses his cool with Ceccherini, but things have been calmed now.
Minute 22 – Inter go close
On the counterattack, Calhanoglu puts a nice ball onto Barella’s head but his headed effort goes over the crossbar.
Minute 15 – VERONA SCORE! 1-0!
Oh it’s a disaster for Inter and Handanovic. The goalkeeper was too casual trying to play out from the back. Ivan Ilic intercepted his pass, went in on goal and lifted an elegant chip over the goalkeeper to put the hosts ahead. Simone Inzaghi is not happy on the sideline.
Minute 12 – CHANCE!
Inter go close with Lautaro Martinez forcing Lorenzo Montipo into a save.
We’re underway in Verona. Can Inter get another win under their belt?

Inter XI: Handanovic; Skriniar, de Vrij, Bastoni; Darmian, Barella, Brozovic, Calhanoglu, Perisic; Dzeko 7, Martinez 7.5.
A stroll for Inter in Verona?
