Internazionale ease to a comfortable 3-0 win at Giuseppe Meazza. Both Inter and Sampdoria arrived fresh from some positive results. Inter were looking to pick up points after winning their previous two matches in the competition. The most recent was against the Fiorentina away (4-3), the other to Salernitana at home (2-0). Sampdoria were looking to extend their winning run after a 1-0 victory against Cremonese. Inter and Sampdoria currently occupy 4th and 18th spots in the table, with 24 points and 6 points respectively after 12 matches.

The first half of the match started favourably for Inter, when Stefan De Vrij opened the rout, 20 minutes in. However they weren’t finished yet and Nicolo Barella made it 2-0 just before half-time, to take a 2-0 lead into half time.

Nerazzurri once more applied the pressure in the second period and were rewarded, thanks to a goal from Joaquin Correa, 73 minutes in, leaving the final score at 3-0.

Substitutions for Inter included Joaquin Correa, Romelu Lukaku, Francesco Acerbi, Raoul Bellanova and Kristjan Asllani for Lautaro Martinez, Edin Dzeko, Alessandro Bastoni, Denzel Dumfries and Hakan Calhanoglu, respectively. Sampdoria brought on Ronaldo Vieira, Valerio Verre, Ignacio Pussetto, Tomas Rincon and Daniele Montevago for Gerard Yepes, Gonzalo Villar, Francesco Caputo, Filip Djuricic and Manolo Gabbiadini.

There were bookings for Alessandro Bastoni from Inter, and Gerard Yepes, Omar Colley, Filip Djuricic, Valerio Verre, Manolo Gabbiadini and Ronaldo Vieira, for Sampdoria.

Inter will next travel to Juventus, while Sampdoria will face Fiorentina at home.
