Inter destroyed Verona in the matchday 33 with a 6-0 win. Dzeko scored a brace while Lautaro, Calhanoglu also got on the scoresheet.
Simone Verdi had scored three goals in his previous two games, the first two of which came in a 2-1 victory over Bologna and a 1-1 draw with Cremonese. His most recent goal was the equaliser against Cremonese. In the match against Sassuolo in early April, he started as the number 10 with the frontman Adolfo Gaich, who scored the game-winning goal in the 95th minute.
After coming off the bench to mount a comeback and help seal Inter’s victory over Lazio, Lautaro Martinez started up front besides the Edin Dzeko in Verona. He also scored both of Inter’s goals in the match. Romelu Lukaku started this match on the bench with the intention of having an impact on the game comparable to that which Martinez had in the previous match.
Calhanoglu played a tempting ball into the penalty area of the home team for Martinez to attack, but the striker was unable to make a clean connection with his header, and Verona’s Hien cleared the ball away with a header of his own. Calhanoglu sent another ball into the danger zone, and Dzeko was the intended recipient. However, the Inter striker fouled Magnani while he was jumping, and the home team was awarded the free-kick.
Dimarco stepped into the penalty area and prepared to fire a first-time shot across the goal’s face. He got a shot off, but it was more like a shot and it went well wide of the far post, missing Dzeko and Martinez. Dzeko got a free header on Dimarco’s outswinging corner, but the striker couldn’t keep his shot down and it went high over the crossbar.
Lazovic intercepted a long pass and then played a delightful throughball right into Verdi’s path. The playmaker drove a low shot goalward with his left foot from a tight angle while using his left foot, but Handanovic made the first real save of the match by parrying the shot at his near post. Inter got the ball back and started firing in crosses from the flanks, with Calhanoglu and Dumfries taking turns. However, Verona was able to repel them.
Dimarco came up on the right side of the field to receive the pass from Calhanoglu, however he was brought down by Ceccherini at the last second, and as a result, Inter won a free kick in a position where either of the players mentioned previously could cross the ball into the penalty area. Calhanoglu came through, and the ball in that he attempted to pass was spot on. Dzeko was the player who got into the best position to score, but Montipo was able to tip his shot over the crossbar and keep it out of the net.
In order to hold off Inter, Montipo defied the laws of gravity. D’Ambrosio did meet Dimarco’s corner at the far post with a stooping header, that Montipo, who was at the time collapsing into the net, swatted out of the goal area and pushed wide. . Another Inter corner well almost resulted in a goal when De Vrij struck the ball on the half-volley while it was coming in from the other side. However, Montipo was there once more and he deflected the ball away from the potential threat.
Inter is in the lead after Verona scored an own goal, which is hard to believe. The tempting cross that Martinez provided was deflected to the back post for a corner, which was then played short to Dimarco. His low cross struck Gaich, who was trying to make a clearance from the outside of the penalty area, and that touch proved to be crucial as the ball beat Montipo at his near post and crept into the back of the net.
With a thunderous finish from long range, Inter increased their lead over their opponents. It didn’t look like much was going on as Brozovic gave the ball to Calhanoglu, but when he got the ball about 30 yards out from the net, the midfielder took a chance and sent the ball cruising right into top corner, leaving Montipo with no chance to save it and putting Inter up 2-0.
Tameze was defeated in the middle of the field with his back to the goal, and Martinez was able to win possession of the ball. He played Dzeko through, and the forward took advantage of the opportunity by finishing off the simplest of opportunities by slotting the ball past an advancing Montipo. Inter took the lead with a score of 3-0 in what seemed like the blink of an eye.
As Faraoni drove to the right, he aimed his crossbow at Gaich and fired it at a high, hanging position. The player who scored the own goal responded with a spectacular volley that he drilled into the surface, and Handanovic had to push the ball out over bar to protect it from going in on the rebound.
Mkhitaryan was able to get past Tameze in the middle of the pitch thanks to a deft first touch, and he proceeded to glide into open space. From the outside of the box, he took a shot at the goal with the intention of putting it in the top right corner; however, his measured effort ended up taking a deflection and went up and over the crossbar.
Doig made his way across to the left and entered the box, where he discovered Gaich. From the edge of the six-yard box, he tried to back-heel the ball in the direction of the goal, but he failed to generate anywhere near enough force to test Handanovic, and the goalkeper collected the ball.
Martinez was able to get in on the action after Brozovic intercepted a sloppy pass out of defence made by the home team. Brozovic then passed the ball around through to Martinez who was standing on the edge of the box. Martinez scored. Montipo came on in an attempt to cut the deficit, but the Argentine defeated him in a nonchalant manner with a sensuous chipped finish that went into the back of the net. The Nerazzurri won by a score of 4-0, and that was probably enough to clinch the points.
Two goals from Dzeko contributed to Inter’s five-goal lead. Acerbi charged up the middle from center back as the Nerazzurri quickly broke. He found Dzeko in the penalty area, and the latter decided to step inside Doig’s contest before pulling a low shot past Montipo into the far corner.
Inter scored six of the game’s best goals, with Martinez adding one more in the final minute. The Argentine almost got a break on the cross from Zanotti coming in on the right, but Montipo still had to scramble to make the save. Martinez retook possession of the ball and stabbed it in the direction of the goal, leaving Montipo flailing as the ball found its way into the far corner. Faraoni was unable to get it clear, and it appeared that he had just given up.
