Verona late strike breaks Inter hearts

Inter Milan suffered more frustration and missed a chance to reclaim third place in Serie A as Verona scored a late equaliser to hold them a 2-2 draw on Thursday.

After their shock 2-1 home defeat by Bologna on Sunday, Antonio Conte’s men were in more trouble early when Darko Lazovic gave Verona a second-minute lead.

Antonio Candreva levelled four minutes after the break and Federico Dimarco deflected the ball into his own net to give Inter a 2-1 lead in the 55th only for Miguel Veloso to level for the hosts on the 85th minute.

Inter remain fourth with 65 points, having been overtaken by Atalanta after their 2-0 win over Sampdoria on Wednesday, and are 10 adrift of leaders Juventus with seven games to play. Verona are ninth with 43.
