A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player And Luciano Spalletti’s side were on their way when Valero, an off-season signing from Fiorentina, netted his first goal for the club towards the end of the first half, the 32-year-old profiting from Antonio Candreva’s superb cross.Verona had lost their two previous fixtures to sit 19th after 10 matches of their Serie A return, but a VAR-assisted penalty from substitute Pazzini gave them hope of a first top-flight win against the Nerazzurri in 25 years.However, in the fashion of true Scudetto contenders, Inter promptly responded through Perisic’s searing 67th-minute strike to extend their unbeaten start to 11 matches.5 – Inter are the first team to use the same starting XI in five different Serie A games this season. Certainty. #VeronaInter — OptaPaolo (@OptaPaolo) October 30, 2017 Verona created the first opportunity of note when Alessio Cerci’s goal-bound effort was impressively blocked by Brazil defender Miranda.The visitors soon settled and saw a well-worked opening screwed wide by in-form captain Mauro Icardi, before Matias Vecino drew a comfortable low save from goalkeeper Nicolas.Spalletti’s men had begun to assert their dominance midway through the half and, on the back of sustained possession and pressure, their 36th-minute opener came as little surprise.Italy international Candreva produced the required class as his delightful inswinging cross from the right dropped perfectly for Valero to volley home from close range, giving Inter an assured one-goal lead at the break. | @bvalero20 ‘s speciality: Goals  Verona.
