Roma vs Inter Milan ends in 2-2 draw: Gianluca Mancini’s late goal earned AS Roma a 2-2 draw at home to Inter Milan on Sunday which left the visitors three points behind leaders AC Milan in the Serie A title race.
Lorenzo Pellegrini’s deflected shot put the hosts in front at half time, but Inter mustered a spirited response and Milan Skriniar headed in a deserved equaliser after the break.
Achraf Hakimi put Inter ahead by curling an outstanding shot in off the bar, but Mancini’s glancing header levelled the scores with four minutes remaining.
Inter are in second place on 37 points, three behind city rivals AC Milan, with Roma third on 34 points.
Leaders AC Milan missed a big opportunity to put further distance between themselves and the chasing pack on Wednesday when they fell flat at home to Juventus and lost 3-1.
While the teams were drawn 1-1 at the half, Federico Chiesa scored his second of the match in the second half, and Weston McKennie added a third for Juve late in the match for the win.
The loss snapped an incredible streak for Milan who was undefeated in 27-straight Serie A matches while having also scored at least twice in 17-straight.
They’ll have a chance to get back on track when they host 17th-place Torino at 2:45 pm EST Saturday afternoon in Serie A Matchday 17.
The Toros have been struggling with this campaign but have hit a strong patch of form of late. Torino is undefeated in four matches after Wednesday’s 1-1 draw with Verona. The streak has also seen them draw 1-1 with Bologna and Napoli and win 3-0 over Parma.
