Milan, Italy, Sep 26: Mauro Icardi got his first goal of the 2018-2019 Serie A season and assisted in scoring the second as Inter Milan beat Fiorentina 2-1.
Fiorentina was the more dynamic side in the early going at Milan’s San Siro and only the post stopped them taking the lead on a strike by Kevin Mirallas, while Giovanni Simeone was denied in the 27th minute by Inter goalkeeper Samir Handanovic, reports Efe news.
The match looked set to end the first half scoreless until the referee awarded Inter a penalty in the 45th minute after spotting a handball by Fiorentina’s Victor Hugo on Tuesday.
Icardi stepped to the spot and converted for his 11th career goal against Fiorentina.
The visitors pulled level in the 53rd minute when what looked like a harmless shot from distance by Federico Chiesa deflected off Inter defender Milan Skriniar and into the net.
Fiorentina dominated for the next 20 minutes and seemed likely to leave San Siro with at least a point until Danilo d’Ambrosio scored for Inter in the 78th minute after a give-and-go with Icardi.
The outcome leaves each of the two clubs with 10 points from six matches, but Fiorentina sits ahead of Inter in fourth place by virtue of better goal difference.
