Wasteful Roma Draw Against Inter

Roma and Inter played out a 1-1 draw at Stadio Olimpico on Sunday in a match both sides were determined to win.

The Giallorossi were looking to consolidate their place in the top six while Inter aimed to close the gap to Juventus at the top of the table.

Francesco Totti opened the scoring for the hosts via the penalty spot but a leveller from Rodrigo Palacio secured a point for the visitors.

Roma took the lead in the 22nd minute when Francesco Totti converted a penalty. The hosts won the spot-kick after Ranocchia fouled Michael Bradley in the area. The Inter defender clipped Bradley as he was sliding to intercept the ball.

The Nerazzurri equalised on the stroke of half-time. Guarin's initial shot was blocked but he pounced on the loose ball before squaring for Palacio to provide the finish.

Roma were the better side for most of the game and created a number of opportunities to clinch the win, but they were wasteful in front of goal.

Ivan Piris tested Handanovic after the break with a powerful long-range strike but the keeper was up to the task.

Livaja went close in the last 20 minutes but his shot from the edge of the area took a deflection and ultimately missed the target wide.
