Inter Milan Recovers Against Sampdoria

Inter Milan

Internazionale di Milano returned to winning ways after defeating Sampdoria 3-1 at the San Siro in Milano Italy. The Nerazzurri were playing in front of two VIPs that were in the stands at the San Siro, Jose Mourinho  and Ronaldo (Brazilian, Il Fenomeno). Roberto Mancini‘s side got their second win in Serie A since defeating Chievo Verona back on the 3rd of February.

The New Year really hasn’t been a strong one for Inter since they only won three matches into 2016. The other victory came in early January on the 6th at the Stadio Carlo Castellani against Empoli. This particular occasion against Sampdoria, Inter put in work with goals coming from two unlikely goal scorers. Two goals were scored off a corner kick and defenders Danilo D’Ambrosio and Joao Miranda scored them. Joao and Danilo both scored their first goals in the Serie A in this Scudetto campaign for Inter.

Sampdoria’s coach, Italian legend Vincenzo Montella, was frustrated at his side’s inability to capitalize on their own set piece opportunities. Montella’s misery was sealed in the 73rd minute when Argentine forward Mauro Icardi hit Sampdoria on the counterattack. The visitors would go on to grab a consolation goal in the 92nd minute when Fabio Quagliarella fired in a close range shot pass Samir Handanovic.

Inter Milan scored three goals from their only three shots they had on target. This is the second time this campaign that Inter have scored more than one goal at home. Roberto Mancini will be hoping this win over Sampdoria is a sign of change in the wind for Inter Milan especially with the upcoming Derby d’Italia match against a red-hot Juventus next week.

Danilo D’Ambrosio’s goal was the first goal scored by an Italian player since Andrea Ranocchia (who’s on the Sampdoria now) was playing for Inter Milan back on the 15th of December year 2014! Buon Lavoro Danilo! (Italian for “good work”)
