Inter 3 Fiorintina 0
San Siro,Milan Italy
Inter Milan would start their season in winning fashion as they would beat Fiorentina. Last season Inter would finish 8th has they would fail to make a Europa League spot since the 2014-15 season. That and they would sack 2 managers after a roller coaster season. Icardi would score early giving the Nurazzuris the early lead. Then he would add to that lead about 20 minutes later. Fiorentina would try to get into the match but they would struggle to do so has Inter would hold a slight possession lead. Then in the second half Ivan Persic would score to cement the victory for the grass snakes and start their campaign to a good start.
In the first match of the Inter would go with a form Inter Milan manager is all to familiar with the 4-2-3-1 formation. In goal would be none other than Handanovic who would get his 181st appearance. Then of defense we would have Nagamoto, one of Inters newest signings of the summer Milan Skriniar, Miranda, and our top defender D’Ambrosio. Then next we would have Valero and Vecino in front of them has our wingbacks. In the attacking midfield we would have Ivan Persic who was our secondary goal scorer last season next you would have Brozovic and Candereva capping off the midfield. Then up front you would have our top scorer last season with 26 goals our striker Mauro Icardi.
After a nice summer break the first match for Inter would get underway. Inter would look to take a early lead. They would do just that has Icardi would score his first goal of the season in the sixth minute of the match after being given a penalty kick after being fouled by Fiorentina player Davide Astori making it 1-0 Inter. A few minutes later Ivan Persic would try to score his first goal of the season but would miss after the ball would go just to the right which was assisted by Brozovic. In the 15th minute Icardi would score his second goal of the match and season with an assist by Ivan has he would cross the ball to Icardi and would get a header to the center of the box to the bottom left corner. This would make it 2-0 to the grass snakes. A minute later D’Ambrosio would get a foul and give a free kick to Fiorentina but they would miss. Icardi would try to get another goal but would be found offside. Icardi would assist Bozovic in a goal but would be saved by Fiorentina keeper. Inter would try and get one last goal in before the end of the half by Candereva. Before the half would end Fiorentina would try to score by a goal from Gil Dias but would be blocked by Handanovic. The whistle would blow ending the half with Inter up 2-0. If they could keep the ball away from there own goal and keep up the pressure on offense Inter could be on their way to a season opening victory.
After the break the second half would commence. A few minutes in Icardi would try and get another goal but his attempt would be blocked by Fiorentina keeper in the top right hand corner. Fiorentina would try and score in the 59th minute by Sebastian but would be blocked by Handanovic. Not a minute later Fiorentina would try again but Davide attempt would miss to the left. In the 64th minute Inter would make their first substition of the match when Joao would come in for Borja Valero. In the 74th minute Candreva would try to get a goal of his own but would be blocked. A minute later Roberto would miss has the ball would go over the crossbar. In the 79th minute Ivan Persic would get an amazing header into the left side of the box. In the 90th minute Inter would try to get one last goal D’ambrosio would miss with a left footed shot to the left. The match would end 3-0 Inter and would start their season in winning style.
Inter would come out victorius in this matchup. But next week we face title contenders Roma at home. My man of the match is shared between Icardi and Handanovic. Icardis two goals in the first half would cement their first match victory and Handanovic for keeping his first clean sheet of the campaign. Inter have a lot to prove has they look to make it back into a Europa League spot. I’m looking foward to this season and covering every bit of it. Has always Forza Inter.
