Inter overturns Verona, but in the end makes 2-2 and slips to 4th place – Il Tempo

VERONA (ITALPRESS) – There is no reaction from Inter. At least not to the extent that Antonio Conte would have liked from his players after his 2-1 defeat against Bologna. The Nerazzurri lineup at Bentegodi does not go beyond a 2-2 against a Hellas Verona who remains at -6 from Milan seventh in the standings and slips to fourth place. A result that leaves many regrets to the Nerazzurri capable of recovering from 1-0 to 1-2 before suffering the goal of Veloso’s final draw in the final. That the evening would not have been one of the most positive for Inter, it was evident during a first half full of nervousness (with a spat between Juric and Conte) and that he questioned the excellent numbers of Inter away: no one has conceded fewer goals (15) than the Nerazzurri away from the friendly walls. Yet after just two minutes of play, Hellas Verona are ahead: Lazovic escapes Skriniar on the left, re-enters the right and beats Handanovic. There is no reaction from Inter. Indeed, the Nerazzurri maneuver is sometimes cumbersome and predictable. Quite the opposite of Hellas who for athletic brilliance seems to have returned to the pre lockdown format: at 19 ‘at the end of a prolonged action, Miguel Veloso lets go of a shot that is printed on the pole. But Hellas’ chances are not over: a minute later Amrabat catches Dimarco who skims the post on the fly.
In the second half there is another Inter and within ten minutes the Nerazzurri comeback is already completed: at 49 ‘Candreva finds himself in the right place to put on the net after a previous pole hit by Lukaku; at 55 ‘Candreva is still the protagonist with a cross shot deflected by Dimarco in his own goal with the complicity of Silvestri. In the final there is a mockery for Inter: Rrahmani in offensive progression serves Miguel Veloso who from central position defeats Handanovic and fixes the score on 2-2.
