MILAN – Three more goals against Verona – after putting four past Genoa on the opening weekend – saw Simone Inzaghi's side pick up their second win of the campaign and head into the first international break on maximum points. The Nerazzurri had to work for it at the Bentegodi after Ivan Ilic gave the hosts an early lead, but second-half strikes from Lautaro Martinez and a double from Joaquin Correa on his Inter debut completed the comeback.
DEBUT DOUBLE FOR CORREA
It took Correa all of 11 minutes to win over Inter as he introduced himself with an imperious header and a clinical low finish.
In doing so he became the second Argentine player – after Walter Samuel – to score on his Serie A debut for Inter since three points were introduced for a win.
The last player to bag a brace in his first game for the club was Giampaolo Pazzini in 2011 – a feat previously achieved by Mohamed Kallon, Alvaro Recoba and Nicola Ventola.
LAUTARO'S HALF CENTURY
The goal that initiated the comeback was scored by Lautaro shortly after the restart – his 50th in all competitions for the Nerazzurri. El Toro has reached this milestone in 133 appearances, averaging a goal every 174 minutes.
Three of Lautaro's last four away goals in Serie A have been headers and he has now been involved in three goals in his last two league games (two goals, one assist) – as many as in his 13 previous matches.
200 IN SERIE A FOR BROZOVIC
Friday's match in Verona was Marcelo Brozovic's 200th Serie A appearance, making him the first Croat to reach this figure in the age of three points for a win.
Victory at the Stadio Bentegodi earned Inter their first comeback win in 24 games. The last time was at San Siro against Crotone on 3 January.
The Nerazzurri have now kicked off the season with two wins in four of the last five years, the only exception coming in 2018/19 (one point).
