Inter Milan moved back into the hunt for a place in Europe next season and dented Roma’s Champions League hopes with a 2-1 win at the San Siro on Saturday evening. The victory took Inter ahead of city rivals AC Milan and within four points of sixth-placed Fiorentina. Udinese earlier on Saturday delivered a potentially knockout blow to AC Milan’s Europa League dreams by beating the Rossoneri 2-1.
Hernanes gave the Nerazzurri the lead after 15 minutes but Radja Nainggolan’s equaliser looked like it would be enough to earn Roma their 11th draw in their last 15 games.
Mauro Icardi had other ideas, though, and his 88th-minute winner gave Roberto Mancini’s side a much needed three point.
Earlier, Udinese delivered a potentially knockout blow to AC Milan’s hopes of playing in Europe next season by beating the Rossoneri 2-1 on Saturday evening.
Giampiero Pinzi and Emmanuel Badu turned Udinese’s superiority into goals in the second half to earn the Bianconeri their first win in six, and send Filippo Inzaghi’s men tumbling to their first defeat since March 16.
Giampaolo Pazzini grabbed a late consolation, but it was not enough to prevent a loss which could see Milan’s deficit on Serie A’s top five grow to 10 points on Sunday with six games of the season remaining.
