Verona 1-2 Inter Milan: Antonio Conte’s side keep up the pressure on city rivals AC Milan in Serie A after seventh straight league victory with goals from Lautaro Martinez and Milan Skriniar

  • Inter Milan stepped up their performance impressively after a tight first period 
  • The Nerazzurri went two points ahead of AC Milan before their late kick-off

Inter Milan kept up the pressure on neighbours AC Milan when Milan Skriniar’s header gave them a 2-1 win at mid-table Verona in Serie A on Wednesday evening.

Inter produced a lethargic first half before Lautaro Martinez volleyed them in front seven minutes after the break.

However, a defensive mix-up allowed Manchester City loanee Ivan Ilic to equalise for the hosts 11 minutes later.

Skriniar, one of the players at fault for the Verona goal, made amends by heading Inter back in front from a Marcelo Brozovic cross in the 69th minute.

The result means Antonio Conte’s side have won seven straight league games and extended Verona’s winless run against them to 19 matches.

The win also moved Inter to the top of Serie A with 33 points, two ahead of AC Milan who began the day as leaders and played Lazio later on Wednesday.
