Džeko inspires Inter to Italian Super Cup win over Milan

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) — Veteran forward Edin Džeko has inspired Inter Milan to a 3-0 win over city rival AC Milan and a second straight Italian Super Cup trophy. The 36-year-old Džeko scored one goal on Wednesday and also had a role in Federico Dimarco’s opener. World Cup winner Lautaro Martínez sealed the result late on as Inter lifted the first trophy of the Italian season at King Fahd International Stadium in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The result will increase worries over Milan’s start to the year. The defending champion has fallen nine points behind runaway leader Napoli and is only a point above Inter and Juventus. Inter and Milan face each other again in a Serie A derby on Feb. 5.
