BARI – Inter ended up in second place in the San Nicola Trophy, beating Bari 2-0 before losing 1-0 to AC Milan in the evening's second contest.
Inter picked up three points in their first match against the hosts, with goals from Rey Manaj and Fredy Guarin in the 31st and 36th minute.
The Nerazzurri No. 97 came close to scoring on two occasions before finding the net at the third time of asking. Rodrigo Palacio crossed from the left, Dodo missed by a whisker, but Manaj made no mistake one-on-one with keeper Alessandro Micai.
The second came five minutes later when Palacio provided a wonderful assist after a flowing move, leaving Guarin to beat the Bari goalkeeper from the edge of the area.
The second mini-match of the night against AC Milan began with a great chance for the Nerazzurri, but Manaj was unable to connect from just yards out.
Sinisa Mihajlovic's side took the lead on the quarter of an hour mark when Poli turned home Nocerino's cross to finish off a counter-attack.
A raft of changes ensued before Inter had another decent opportunity with Delgado, but he delayed his shot a fraction too long and it was blocked by the Rossoneri rearguard.
AC Milan held on to win the game and the first edition of the tournament.
