Crotone vs Inter Milan

Inter Milan will strive to continue their perfect start to the season against Crotone. Inter's city rivals, AC Milan, dispatched a comfortable 3-0 win here three weeks ago. Crotone are still searching for the first goal, let alone a win. Inter will be smacking their lips in anticipation as Bologna, Genoa and Benevento follow after this trip. That's potentially 12 easy points on offer. However, the Milan derby and Napoli come right after this easy stretch. Last season, both clubs managed a win each.


Match Stats:

  • Crotone 0-2 Inter Milan
  • Shots: 10-6
  • Possession: 37%-63%
  • Corner kicks: 8-5

Inter Milan continued their perfect start to the Serie A season thanks to a scrappy win at struggling Crotone.

Milan Skriniar poked home a right-footed shot after some slack defending from Crotone, who dominated large spells but could not find a way past an in-form Samir Handanovic, while Ivan Perisic added gloss to the scoreline late in injury-time.

Inter's attacking trio failed to click into top gear, with Icardi a peripheral figure throughout, as Crotone finished the stronger against the disappointing Nerazzurri.

However, despite being the worse team throughout the affair, Inter capitalised from some poor set-piece defending from Crotone to strike first through Skriniar, who slotted home past a rooted Alex Cordaz.

Perisic then grabbed his third league goal of the season late on, striking into the far corner as Crotone were caught out on the break, helping secure all three points for Inter.

The win sees Inter climb to the top of the Serie A table ahead of Juventus' and Napoli's matches this weekend, while Crotone remain without a win in their opening four league games.
