Inter outplayed Sampdoria for 60 minutes leading by 3 goals thanks to a Mauro Icardi brace and a goal by former Blucerchiati defender Milan Skriniar. However, football matches are played over 90 minutes which led to Sampdoria getting 2 goals back causing unecessary drama toawards the end but the Nerazzurri rode out the storm and recorded their 8th win in 10 matches in the 2017/2018 Serie A season.
Inter came out all guns blazing and hit the woodwork twice in the first half in what was the best first half Inter has played this season. Milan Skriniar broke the deadlock scoring his 2nd goal of the season and decided not to celebrate his goal against his former paymasters before Mauro Icardi first hit the post with a powerful header but then scoring his 9th goal in as many matches to double Inter’s lead.
The Inter captain scored his second of the game early in the second half before Inter suffered a collective lapse of concentration allowing Sampdoria to get 2 goals back putting Inter under pressure. However, all’s well that ends well and Spalletti’s men came away with all the 3 points on the night going top of the Serie A with the rest of the teams in the league playing tomorrow.
