Spezia Calcio fell to an away defeat at the hands of Internazionale at Giuseppe Meazza on Saturday. Both Inter and Spezia arrived on the back of wins.

Spezia were looking to extend their winning run after a 1-0 victory against Empoli. As the table looks today, Inter and Spezia are 1st, (6 points) and 11th, (3 points), in the table respectively, after 2 matches.

Inter started strong and were rewarded for their efforts, when Lautaro Martinez opened the rout in the 35th minute to take them into the break 1-0 up.

Nerazzurri started strong in the second half and were able to dominate, with a goal from Hakan Calhanoglu in the 52nd minute. They then scored again, increasing their advantage thanks to a goal from Joaquin Correa, 82 minutes in to make it 3-0.
