Roma Snatches 2-2 Draw Against Title Rival Inter Milan (Highlights)

January 10, 2021

Gianluca Mancini's late goal saw Roma snatch a 2-2 draw at home to title rival Inter Milan on Sunday and dent its opponent's Serie A aspirations.

Mancini headed in the equalizer four minutes from time after goals from Milan Škriniar and Achraf Hakimi appeared to have handed Inter the win. Lorenzo Pellegrini had scored the opener for Roma.

The result left Inter three points behind Serie A leader AC Milan, which won 2-0 at Benevento on Saturday. Both Milan teams are looking to end Juventus' nine-year grip on the title.

Inter remained three points above third-place Roma. Juventus can move to within a point of Roma if it wins at home to Sassuolo later, with the visitors surprisingly only a point behind the Bianconeri in the table.

The match in the Italian capital was a direct battle for second spot and Inter threatened to take an early lead but Romelu Lukaku's header was acrobatically fingertipped over the bar by Pau López.

Instead it was Roma that took the lead in the 17th minute when Pellegrini's shot took a slight deflection to go into the bottom left corner after a swift counterattack.

Lautaro Martínez had a goal ruled out for offside shortly before the break but Inter has often performed better in the second half this season and so it proved again.

Inter went close several times before Škriniar headed in a corner in the 56th. Hakimi fired Inter in front seven minutes later when he collected a pass on the right, cut inside and curled a strike into the far top corner.

Inter appeared to be heading for a valuable win but Roma upped the pressure in the dying minutes. Mancini had an effort well saved by Samir Handanović but the defender headed in the resulting corner for the equalizer.
