Inter grab late equaliser in Milan derby

Press AssociationPress Association 20/11/2016

Ivan Perisic's stoppage-time equaliser has denied AC Milan at the death in the Derby della Madonnina as Inter Milan salvaged a 2-2 draw in Serie A.

Two maiden San Siro goals from Spanish schemer Suso had put Milan on a course to reach second place on the ladder, but, with Antonio Candreva having grabbed Inter's first leveller at the start of the second half, Perisic put the brakes on the Rossoneri.

The point will mean a lot to new Inter head coach Stefano Pioli, hired to fix the mess left behind by Frank de Boer, who departed with the Nerazzurri languishing in the bottom half of the table.

Hot on Milan's heels are Lazio and Atalanta, whose impressive runs continued on Sunday courtesy of respective home victories over Genoa and Roma.

A seven-game unbeaten streak had helped Simone Inzaghi's Lazio climb the table and goals from Felipe Anderson, Lucas Biglia and Wallace proved too much for Genoa to handle in a 3-1 triumph in the capital.

Franck Kessie's late penalty fired Atalanta into the race for Champions League football as title hopefuls Roma suffered a 2-1 defeat.

Further down the table, Federico Bernardeschi made it five goals in his last five games with Josip Ilicic also scoring twice as Fiorentina thumped Empoli 4-0 to reach eighth place.

Sampdoria produced a brilliant late comeback to seal a remarkable 3-2 win over Sassuolo at Stadio Luigi Ferraris.

Sassuolo led 2-0 with six minutes left, thanks to Federico Ricci and Antonino Ragusa, but Fabio Quagliarella pulled one back before Luis Muriel's brace secured a stunning turnaround.

Bologna broke their barren run of seven league games without a win thanks to a comfortable 3-1 home triumph over Palermo.

Andrea Belotti scored a late double as Torino claimed a 2-0 victory - their second consecutive win - at rock-bottom Crotone.
