The title threat fading with another two points falling after turning the game around, for Antonio Conte’s guys, it’s not happening.
As Hellas Verona took the lead early, it was a topsy-turvy game at the Bentegodi, Antonio Candreva turned things around with a deflection, but Miguel Veloso had the last word to keep Inter 2-2.
After the weekend’s losses, All sides needed a boost but the Nerazzurri had to win to avoid losing Atalanta’s third spot. During the 2-1 defeat to Bologna, Nicolò Barella, Stefano Sensi and Victor Moses hurt, Lautaro Martinez and Christian Eriksen were benched, plus suspended Alessandro Bastoni and Danilo D’Ambrosio, and Borja Valero and Alexis Sanchez stepped in. Verona welcomed Sofyan Amrabat and Matteo Pessina back but they missed out on Mattia Zaccagni, Fabio Borini, and Giampaolo Pazzini.
One point behind Atalanta, Inter fell to the third position and is Juventus leaders’ 10-point adrift. In Serie A, Hellas has not yet beaten Inter since 1992, managing four draws from 18 attempts.
