Marcelo Brozovic scored two goals in the space of three minutes to secure Inter Milan a 2-1 victory over Benevento.

Brozovic opened the scoring in the 19th minute as he arrived in the box to head home an Antonio Candreva cross.

And just three minutes later he added a second, this time bending a fine free kick from the edge of the box into the top corner.

Marco D'Alessandro pulled one back for Benevento just before half-time, finishing into the bottom corner following a fast break -- ending a 567-minute goal drought for the club in Serie A in the process.

But the home side were unable to find an equaliser in the second half, with Inter holding on to record a sixth league win from seven games this season.
