Inter secured their second win in two games so far this season on Friday night, beating Hellas Verona 3-1 at the Bentegodi thanks to new signing Joaquin Correa’s late heroics.
I Nerazzurri started brightly, but they fell behind on 15 minutes, when Samir Handanovic’s misplaced pass landed at the feet of Ivan Ilic, and the midfielder cooly dinked the ball over the shot-stopper.
Inter continued to make a string of horrible mistakes in possession, but survived several scares to enter the dressing room only a goal behind at half-time.
Verona were made to pay for their poor finishing two minutes into the second half, after Lautaro Martinez marked his return to the starting lineup with a decent header beyond Lorenzo Montipo to level the scores.
Inter pushed to complete their comeback, with Martinez coming close with a snap-shot, and Alessandro Bastoni forcing Montipo into a decent save with a strike from the edge of the box.
Simone Inzaghi threw on debutant Correa with 15 minutes to play, and the Argentine repaid his faith eight minutes later, rising highest to plant a super header into the top corner of the Verona net.
Correa repeated his heroics in injury time, too, turning and firing home from the edge of the box to wrap up all three points for Inter, becoming an instant hero in the process.
