Inter concedes late equaliser in 2-2 draw at Verona

ROME (AP) – Four days after a dispiriting home loss to Bologna, Inter Milan again conceded a late goal in a 2-2 draw at Hellas Verona on Thursday.

Miguel Veloso equalised for Verona from the centre of the area four minutes from time.

The result meant Inter failed to reclaim third place in Serie A from Atalanta, which jumped ahead following its ninth straight win, against Sampdoria, on Wednesday. Inter was left one point behind Atalanta, although still with a safe cushion of 14 points ahead of fifth-place Roma and a solid hold on the final Champions League place.

Verona, which won a promotion playoff after finishing fifth in Serie B last season, has exceeded expectations this campaign and is in ninth place.
