Internazionale won on Sunday against Parma. Partly thanks to a goal from Stefan de Vrij, a 1-0 deficit was turned into a 1-2 victory in the final phase.
As a result, Inter remains firmly in third place with 61 points. The lead over Atalanta Bergamo, which won 2-3 against Udinese earlier in the evening, remains four points. The title fight is between Juventus (69) and Lazio (65).
Internazionale lost expensive points against Sassuolo (3-3) on Wednesday and also seemed to be doing a disservice to Parma. In the Stadio Ennio Tardini it already became 1-0 after fifteen minutes of play after a nice individual action by the Ivorian Gervinho.
Inter only managed to repair this damage in the absolute final phase. De Vrij scored with a head from the corner in the 84th minute. Alessandro Bastoni even gave Inter the full loot three minutes later. Parma ended the game after a red card for Juraj Kucka with ten men.
Atalanta Bergamo stronger in fourth place
Atalanta Bergamo also did good business in the battle for a ticket to the Champions League. With Hans Hateboer in the starting line-up and Marten de Roon as a substitute, Udinese won 2-3.
Atalanta owed much of the victory to Luís Muriel. The Colombian lifted the score from 1-1 to 1-3 between the seventieth and eightieth minute. For the Dutch-tinted Udinese, where Bram Nuytinck, Hidde ter Avest and Marvin Zeegelaar came into action, there was no more than a goal from Kevin Lasagna.
With the victory, Atalanta remains firmly in fourth place in Serie A. The top four in Italy qualify for the Champions League.
AC Milan wins in the final phase against Roma and Kluivert
AC Milan defeated AS Roma in Serie A by two goals in the last fifteen minutes. Ante Rebic opened the score in San Siro in the 76th minute, after which Hakan Çalhanoglu made the lead 2-0 just before time from a penalty.
Kluivert joined Roma for the first 58 minutes. Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who resumed training this week after a calf injury, was not yet in the Milan squad.
The Milanese are seventh by the victory and are only six points behind number five Roma.
