Juventus' domination of Italian football has seen them win Serie A six years in a row, but things may be about to change.

Last season's Champions League finalists remain firm favourites, of course, however the teams around them have made serious strides to close the gap over the summer.

To say that AC Milan have bought a completely new team would be no exaggeration, while the likes of Roma and Napoli look set for strong campaigns too.

Milan's neighbours Inter are on that list of teams just behind Juve, and under new coach Luciano Spalletti, they are looking to improve on last term's disappointing seventh-placed finish.

Inter were in league action against newly-promoted SPAL on Sunday and sealed an important three points with a wonderful goal from Ivan Perisic.

Perisic scores absolute stunner for Inter

I Nerazzurri took the lead at the San Siro in the 27th-minute thanks to a penalty from captain and talisman Mauro Icardi.

Despite enjoying 63% possession, Inter only managed to turn pressure into goals and double their advantage three minutes from time, but they did so in style.

After an initial attack was snuffed out in last-ditch fashion by visitors SPAL, full-back Danilo D'Ambrosio stood a cross up to the edge of the box.

As you can see in the videos below, Croatian international Perisic readied himself before unleashing an unbelievable volley that gave the goalkeeper no chance whatsoever.

The powerful left-footed strike, which flew into the back of the net, earned Inter a 2-0 victory and ensured that they made it three wins out of three in the new Serie A season.

Perisic, who scored 11 goals in 2016-17, has started the campaign in good form and showing exactly why Manchester United were so interested in him.


The skilful 28-year-old was a top transfer target for Jose Mourinho this summer and is widely considered to be the "fourth signing" that Man Utd never got over the line.
