Inter continue their attempted defence of the Serie A title in Round 2 as they make the short trip across Northern Italy to take on Hellas Verona at the Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi on Friday evening.
Simone Inzaghi watched on with delight as Hakan Calhanoglu inspired I Nerazzurri to a 4-0 thumping of Genoa in Serie A’s opening set of fixtures, and the ex-Lazio boss will want to see more of the same from the Turk and the rest of his players.
Verona struggled in their season opener, falling 3-2 against Sassuolo last time out. Having lost to his former employers, Eusebio Di Francesco will no doubt want to get points on the board as early as he possibly can to avoid another job in underwhelming fashion after failing to convince at both Sampdoria and Cagliari since leaving Roma.
