Inter Milan beat Parma 2-1 in Serie A

PARMA, Jun 29 (Agencies) | Publish Date: 6/29/2020 10:25:13 AM IST

Third-placed Inter Milan scored twice in the last six minutes through Stefan De Vrij and Alessandro Bastoni to snatch a 2-1 win at Parma in Serie A on Sunday despite a subdued display.

The scarcely-deserved victory left Inter eight points behind leaders Juventus and four adrift of second-placed Lazio with 10 games each to play.

Gervinho put Parma ahead with a solo goal in the 15th minute and, after a subdued display, Inter suddenly burst into life when defender De Vrij headed an equaliser and substitute Bastoni grabbed the winner three minutes later.

Inter had reserve goalkeeper Tommaso Berni shown the red card and ordered from the bench for dissent in the second half — his second dismissal of a season in which he has yet to make an appearance on the pitch.

Inter coach Antonio Conte was suspended for accumulation of yellow cards and his side, held to a 3-3 draw at home by Sassuolo on Wednesday, seemed to miss the ranting of their fiery manager on the touchline.

They fell behind when Gervinho got to the byline, cut back inside to leave one defender on the ground then drove a low shot past Samir Handanovic.

Andreas Cornelius, scorer of a hat-trick in Parma’s 4-1 midweek win at Genoa, missed two good chances to extend their lead as they pulled Inter’s defence apart.

Inter pushed Parma back after the break but the home defence, expertly marshalled by 38-year-old Bruno Alves, rarely looked like being breached except when Alexis Sanchez forced a rare save from Luigi Sepe.

But six minutes from time, Lautaro Martinez headed a corner back into the area and De Vrij flicked it past Luigi Sepe to level.

Parma had Juraj Kucka sent off for dissent, lost concentration and left Bastoni unmarked to head in from a cross by fellow substitute Victor Moses three minutes later.

Bologna push Sampdoria into deeper trouble

Bologna pushed relegation-threatened Sampdoria into more trouble in Serie A on Sunday by handing Claudio Ranieri’s side a third 2-1 defeat in eight days while Sassuolo were involved in another six-goal thriller, this time drawing 3-3 with Verona.

Musa Barrow broke the deadlock for Bologna with a penalty in the 72nd minute and the Gambian set up the second for Riccardo Orsolini with a mazy run down the left three minutes later.

Barrow then hit the post before Federico Bonazzoli headed one back for Sampdoria with two minutes left.

Sampdoria, who lost by the same scoreline to Inter Milan and then AS Roma, dropped into 17th spot with 26 points, only one place and one point above the danger zone. Bologna are 11th.

Sassuolo’s halftime substitute Jeremie Boga scored twice and Rogerio snatched an equaliser in the seventh minute of stoppage time as they fought back from 3-1 down to draw 3-3 at home to Verona, four days after holding Inter Milan by the same score.

Darko Lazovic gave Verona a 51st minute lead in the mid-table clash, Boga levelled two minutes later but further goals from Mariusz Stepinski and Matteo Pessina put Verona in control.

However, Boga curled another one in for Sassuolo in the 77th and Rogerio scored with a shot off the post deep into stoppage time to complete another dramatic fightback for the Neroverdi.
