Let’s take a look at the player ratings for Inter Milan vs Verona match:-

Inter Milan vs Verona Player Ratings

Inter Milan

Samir Handanovič (GK) (7.4/10)- Horrendous decision-making to pass the ball directly to Ilic just outside the Inter penalty area. Fooled by the calm finish, too.

Federico Dimarco (7.6/10)- A shaky start, along with the rest of the backline, but steadied himself in the second half to nullify Verona’s attacks down the left.

Stefan de Vrij (6.8/10)- Not at fault for the early goal, but didn’t offer the calm and composure needed when heads were being lost around him. Recovered in the second half.

Milan Škriniar (7.3/10)- The best of the back three, not allowing the spreading panic to infect him in possession. Almost gave Inter the lead with a brilliant driving run and shot towards the bottom corner.

Ivan Perišić (8.9/10)- A constant threat on that left flank, putting in so much work at either end of the pitch. The final ball wasn’t always quite on point.

Hakan Çalhanoğlu (7.1/10)- Lost his head way too early in this one, squaring up to a Verona player about 20 minutes into the match. Needs to cut that aspect out of his game, without losing his bite on the pitch. Got the assist for the third. Overall, good.

Marcelo Brozović (7.1/10)- Did his best to dig Handanovic out of a hole, but he was always on the stretch when making the last-ditch tackle. Dropped a clanger of his own to almost gift Verona a second.

Nicolò Barella (7/10)- Much less effective than he was on his debut, struggling to impose himself upon the game further up the pitch. Not handed the freedom he desires, but showed flashes before being subbed.

Ismaïla Sarr (7.1/10)- Found himself free in the box, only for his shot to be blocked. Gave his all to reach his long pass, and then produced a stunning cross to supply the winner. Graft and quality.

Joaquín Correa (6.7/10)- Showed exactly why he’s wanted, finding space in the box. Flashed a snap-shot agonisingly wide soon after.

Edin Džeko (7.4/10)- Won the flick-on to nod the ball into Martinez’s path for the equaliser. Not as commanding as in the 2-0 victory over Verona.

Substitutes:

Alessandro Bastoni (0/10)

Danilo D’Ambrosio (0/10)

Arturo Vidal (0/10)

Verona

Lorenzo Montipò (GK) (6.9/10)- Made two huge, huge saves towards the end of the first half as Bologna, with the second especially good but couldn’t won the match.

Federico Ceccherini (6.9/10)- Whipped in a superb cross from the right in the first half, which deserved a gamble from his teammates. Could have doubled the lead with a diving header.

Koray Günter (7.1/10)- An extremely composed display from the loanee. Wonderfully calm in possession, picking out midfielders in space and setting the visitors in motion. Provided a couple of key tackles and gave a solid league debut.

Nicolò Casale (6.9/10)- Caught out of position and left his fellow defenders horribly exposed late in the first half, but other than that, the captain led with authority for the league leaders.

Davide Faraoni (6.5/10)- Hit the crossbar with a deep free-kick, which was probably a cross.

Adrien Tameze (6.7/10)- Protected the back four with typical tenacity, sitting deep and

biting into tackles when required.

Ivan Ilić (7.1/10)- A better display from the youngster but still not the player Milan thought they’d signed. Unable to take the game by the scruff of its neck.

Darko Lazović (6.6/10)- Played well in the number 10 role, using his lightning dribbling to set Milan on the move. On at his best but was decent.

Daniel Bessa (6.7/10)- Offered so much defensive cover and sacrificed plenty of his attacking. A selfless and committed display from the young star.

Gianluca Caprari (6.4/10)- Denied twice in a matter of seconds by an incredible Skorupski double save.

Giovanni Simeone (6.5/10)- Dug out of a hole by tapping home the rebound from the Swede’s missed spot-kick. Picked up a yellow card for a late challenge in the second half.

Substitutes:

Boško Šutalo (0/10)

Fabio Depaoli (0/10)

Matteo Cancellieri (0/10)

Kevin Lasagna (0/10)
