Serie A leader Inter Milan has dropped two precious points following a 2-2 draw against Fiorentina at the Artemio Franchi stadium in Florence, Italy.
The hosts took an early lead after just 11 minutes when Brazilian Keirrison found the back of the net on Saturday.
The Nerazzurri, under Jos Mourinho, turned the game on its head in six minutes through Argentina forward Diego Milito (75) and Samuel Eto’o (81).
Fiorentina then poured forward in search of an equalizer and defender Per Kroldrup made it 2-2 to earn the Viola a point eight minutes from time.
“After going ahead we gifted Fiorentina a second goal but these things happen in football — you’re often most vulnerable after scoring,” said Inter technical director Marco Branca.
The Italian giants will lose top spot in Serie A should second-placed Roma win its home match against visitor Atalanta on Sunday.
“We’re not worried and we don’t think about what Roma will do,” Branca went on to say. “They still have to play tomorrow. We played our match today against an excellent team. We could have won. We did what we had to do.”
