PSG got a comeback by inter milan

Sixty Sports - Inter Milan won their third game of the 2023 preseason when they met PSG. The Nerazzurri prevailed by a score of 2-1.

PSG took the lead early on, thanks to a goal from Vitinha. Inter Milan, on the other hand, turned the tables with plans from Sebastiano Esposito and Stefano Sensi.

This result provides an excellent lift for Inter as they prepare to face RB Salzburg in a friendly encounter next week.

The match, which took place at the National Stadium Japan, was fiercely contested, with PSG dominating from the opening.

Within the game's first eight minutes, PSG attacked Inter's goal with a shot by Marco Asensio, which Filip Stankovic saved.

Asensio came close to scoring again five minutes later, but his shot hit the goalpost.

Inter Milan struggled to cope with PSG's domination, occasionally resorting to counter-attacks but finding it tough to create clear-cut chances.

Both teams exchanged attacks throughout the first half, but the score remained 0-0.

Neither coach made any player adjustments during the halftime break, electing to stick with the same lineups from the first half.

Inter made four player replacements ten minutes into the second half. Juan Cuadrado, Davide Frattesi, Robin Gosens, and Joaquin Correa replaced Denzel Dumfries, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Federico Dimarco, and Marcus Thuram.

The friendly match's deadlock was finally broken not long after the changes. PSG took a 1-0 lead over Inter Milan when Vitinha struck a rocket strike outside the penalty box that Stankovic failed to stop.

Inter Milan increased their attempts to equalize after falling 1-0.

Their efforts were rewarded in the 81st minute when replacement player Sebastiano Esposito scored after completing a feed from Frattesi. The score has now been tied at 1-1.

Inter took the lead thanks to Esposito's goal. Stefano Sensi skillfully completed a ball from Davide Frattesi two minutes later, bringing the score to 2-1. Inter seized a 2-1 lead.

PSG attempted to raise their attacking intensity despite falling. However, Inter managed to keep their 2-1 lead until the final whistle and secure the victory.
