Inter vanquish Verona to get back on track

FC Internazionale Milano beat Hellas Verona AC to end a three-game winless run, while UC Sampdoria earned only their second victory of the season against ten-man Atalanta BC.

FC Internazionale Milano ended their three-game winless run by beating Hellas Verona AC 4-2 and leapfrogging the Mastini into fourth place in Serie A.

Promoted Verona have set tongues wagging with their start in the Italian top flight and found themselves above Inter in the standings before kick-off following three consecutive victories. However, any Nerazzurri nerves were settled early on when Vangelis Moras inadventently redirected Jonathan's volley into his own goal. Rodrigo Palacio – with his sixth goal of the campaign – and Raphael Martinho traded goals before Esteban Cambiasso's tap-in restored Inter's two-goal cushion at the break.

Rolando bundled a corner over the line as the Milan club took control early in the second half and although Rômulo's drilled effort chipped away at Inter's lead, the thrilling match was beyond Verona. The entertaining encounter was marred by straight red cards for Moras and Ishak Belfodil at the final whistle.

Earlier, UC Sampdoria recorded only their second victory of the season at home against ten-man Atalanta BC. On a three-game winning streak, the visitors hit the bar from a Cristian Raimondi header and had further reason to curse their luck ten minutes after the break when Shkodran Mustafi headed Sampdoria into the lead. Atalanta substitute Constantin Nica then marked only his second appearance for the Bergamo club with a first red card, for a foul on Éder.
