(EFE) – Inter Milan and Atalanta signed a vibrant 2-2 draw at San Siro this Saturday, on the sixth day of Serie A.
Inter missed a penalty taken by Federico Dimarco in the 88th minute and, a few seconds later, Atalanta scored through Roberto Piccoli, but VAR disallowed the goal because the ball had left the field during the action.
San Siro hosted an intense meeting, rich in controversy and scoring chances, in which Argentine Lautaro Martínez put Inter ahead after five minutes and Atalanta turned the score around in the space of eight minutes thanks to Ukrainian Ruslan Malinovsky (m.30) and Italian-Brazilian Rafael Toloi (m.38) .
The interista team, who will visit Shakhtar Donetsk next week in the Champions League, could not count on the injured Argentine Joaquín Correa, but with a Dzeko who reappeared to score 2-2, after deciding in the last day the victory against Fiorentina.
It could have happened in the final stretch, with Inter getting a penalty for a naive one-handed touch in the area of the Turkish Merih Demiral. Dimarco was in charge of launching it, but crashed the shot to the crossbar.
Piccoli, grown up in the Atalanta quarry, was able to give Atalanta all three points seconds later, but his goal was disallowed after a VAR review.
Inter lost the opportunity to catch up with Milan at the top of the table and finished third, two points behind the lead.
Atalanta placed fifth, five points behind leaders Milan.
