Ibrahimovic double secures win

Internazionale returned to winning-ways with a 2-0 victory over Empoli. Inter's previous poor run included an Italian Super Cup defeat to Roma, a 1-1 home draw with Udinese and a 5-0 friendly match drubbing at the hands of Barcelona. But Zlatan Ibrahimovic helped them get back on track, scoring both goals for the Italian champions. Roberto Mancini's men went ahead on 13 minutes when Ibrahimovic volleyed in a Maicon cross. Empoli showed glimpses of why they were Italy's surprise packages last season but stand-in keeper Francesco Toldo comfortably dealt with their attacking threat. Swedish striker Ibrahimovic then put the game to bed with seven minutes remaining when Cesar laid off the ball for a side-foot finish.
