Inter Milan Vs. Palermo: Giampaolo Pazzini Has A Debut Brace, Samuel Eto'o Adds The Third

It's taken than 30 minutes, but Giampaolo Pazzini already has two goals and an assist in an Inter Milan shirt. Coming down from 2-0 down after the first half, Leonardo's purchase and halftime substitute has paid dividends as Inter now have a 3-2 lead over Palermo.

Inter's second goal came from a set piece, which was produced by an almost certain dive from Lucio. On the right side of the penalty area, between 20 and 25 yards from goal, Maicon curled the free kick into the box, and his delivery found the head of Pazzini, who made a great diagonal run. Pazzini didn't waste his chance and directed a powerful header into the back of the net.

Just two minutes later, Inter struck again. Ezequiel Muñoz hauled down Pazzini in the box, and Samuel Eto'o stepped up and buried the penalty to complete the comeback. It's been no more than Inter deserve, since they've been the better side throughout the match.
