Milan, Jan 10 (AFP/APP): Gianluca Mancini headed in a late equalizer as Roma stalled Serie A title rivals Inter Milan with a 2-2 draw in Rome on Sunday.
Antonio Conte’s second-placed Inter lost further points after their eight-match winning streak ended midweek at Sampdoria.
The northern drop three points behind leaders AC Milan who got back to winning ways in Saturday’s 2-0 defeat of Torino after Juventus ended their 27-match unbeaten league run during the week.
Defender Mancini got his head to a Gonzalo Villar cross four minutes from time to keep Roma three points behind Inter in third. “I think it was a good match, played well in the first half too, against Roma which have the same objectives as we have and are only three points behind,” said Conte.
“Then at the end of the match, sometimes there is a certain fear in the face of an important result which prompts you to drop off.” Conte’s side had fought back after Lorenzo Pellegrini gave Roma the lead just after quarter of an hour in the Stadio Olimpico.
Milan Skriniar headed in the equaliser 11 minutes after the break with Achraf Hakimi putting Inter ahead seven minutes later with a superb long range shot that clipped off the crossbar into the net.
