Yesterday Inter Milan played their second preseason friendly of the 2015-16 season, a match that ended in a positive 4-2 result for the Nerazzurri squad.

The attack racked up another four goals against new Serie A minnows Carpi, and this time the defense only let two goals by them instead of the three allowed last weekend against German 3. Liga side Stuttgarter Kickers.

Palacio added to his preseason tally with a nice finish off a deftly weighted Kondogbia through pass; Carpi reacted quickly, however, with an equalizer through Kevin Lasagna.

A decisive Icardi header off a Danilo D'Ambrosio cross saw Inter regain the lead shortly after that, and a gorgeous free kick by Hernanes increased Inter's lead to 3-1 before the half.

Roberto Mancini changed the personnel at every single position at the beginning of the second half, and it only took two minutes for Inter Academy prospect Samuele Longo to score Inter's fourth goal on the day.

About midway through the second half, Ryder Matos pulled one back for Carpi. After that goal, Inter saw the match out comfortably in front of a decent crowd of pleased Nerazzurri supporters.
