Christian Eriksen scored twice for Inter today as the Nerazzurri beat Serie C outfit Pro Sesto 4-0 in a friendly at Appiano Gentile, as per a report from a leading Italian broadcaster.

Sky Sport Italia said the unofficial fixture was arranged to give players who hadn’t featured under Antonio Conte recently to get some match fitness into their legs.

Academy midfielder Tibo Persyn opened the scoring before Eriksen netted twice for the Nerazzurri, showing he was ready for action whenever Conte wished to call upon him.

Ivan Perisic scored the other goal in the game.

Inter’s next competitive match will take place on Saturday evening when they travel to play Udinese on match-day 19 of the Serie A season.

Conte’s side are three points off league leaders AC Milan as the halfway point of the campaign approaches, with Luca Gotti’s side – who drew at home to Atalanta today in a rescheduled match – languishing in 15th, four points above the relegation zone.
