An own goal from Luca Marrone negated goals from Niccolò Zanellato and Vladimir Golemić while both sides were levelled at 2-2 in the first half.

“There is great desire and it shows,” said Conte as Inter target their first Serie A title since 2010 with their European campaign over this season.

“It’s important to continue like this, we produce and create a lot, we score a lot of goals, it’s a pity for the goals conceded.”
