Ghana's No. 1

Dzeko rescues victory for Inter with late goal against Venezia

Published on: 22 January 2022

It was almost a night of disaster for Inter, with the Nerazzurri requiring an injury-time winning goal from Edin Dzeko against relegation-threatened Venezia.

The challenge to retain the Scudetto is very much on for Inter, and dropping two points to the Venice-based club would have been a truly disappointing result, especially with title rivals AC Milan having dispatched the same opposition fairly recently.

After Thomas Henry gave the visitors a shock lead inside 20 minutes of play, the hosts were able to draw level through Nicolo Barella in the 40th minute.

What followed was a barrage from the home team, as they threw players forward to ensure their five-point lead over Milan remained intact before the two teams meet in the next matchday.

Inter put much more high-quality moves together in the second half, putting Venezia's defence under pressure, and it was eventually Dzeko who took the chance.

A fine cross from Denzel Dumfries found the 35-year-old striker inside the penalty area, and his header bounced into the net, marking his ninth league goal for the season.
