Former Arsenal and Manchester United striker Alexis Sanchez scored a late goal to level scores for Inter Milan as they played out a 1-1 draw with Torino. Sanchez snatched an injury-time equalizer for Serie A defending champions Inter Milan but they lost ground in the Serie A title race with the draw at Torino.
Alexis Sanchez Scores to Earn Inter Milan a Point
Simone Inzaghi’s side fell behind to an early Gleison Bremer finish and Torino’s winless run in six league games finally came to an end. Their keeper Etrit Berisha was in great form as his saves inspired the draw. The Albanians denied Lautaro Martinez, Hakan Calhanoglu, and Federico Dimarco.
Edin Dzeko headed over late on but still had time to tee up Sanchez on 93 minutes, who fired in off a post. The result means Inter have just one win in their last five league games and their form has seen them drop to third in the table after Napoli moved second with a 2-1 win at Verona earlier on Sunday.
Victor Osimhen struck twice to give Napoli back-to-back away wins but AC Milan may consider themselves the major winners in the title race over the weekend after their 1-0 win over Empoli on Saturday.
Elsewhere on Sunday Lorenzo Pellegrini converted a 94th-minute penalty to earn Jose Mourinho’s AS Roma a 1-1 draw at Udinese, who had led from the 14th minute when Nahuel Molina struck superbly from range.
AS Roma stay sixth in the table, while fifth-placed Atalanta was held to a goalless draw at home by 19th-placed Genoa, who have now drawn all seven matches under coach Alexander Blessin.
Atalanta is now eight points behind fourth-placed Juventus, albeit with a game in hand, after failing to put away their chances, with Luis Muriel striking the post in the first half and Mario Pasalic lifting over with the goal at his mercy on the hour mark.
