Inter Milan beat Verona 2-1 to keep the pressure on city rivals AC Milan

Inter Milan picked up their seventh successive Serie A win on Wednesday, overcoming Verona 2-1 away with a rare Milan Skriniar goal to keep up the pressure on neighbors AC Milan.

Lautauro Martinez volleyed Inter in front seven minutes after the break but a defensive mix-up allowed Ivan Ilic to equalise for the hosts 11 minutes later.

Skriniar, one of the players at fault for the Verona goal, made amends by heading Inter back in front in the 69th minute.

Speaking after the match, Inter Boss Antonio Conte said:

‘This is the seventh consecutive win and that must give us conviction and make us understand that we must continue on this path,’

‘Today, we showed a great will to win.

‘This is certainly a more balanced championship than in previous years.

‘It will be very difficult, all the teams have strengthened.

‘You can lose points against anyone, you must always be on the ball.’

The result leaves Inter just one point behind league leaders AC Milan.
