Ivan Perisic scoresInter have failed to win three of their last four away games against newly promoted sides in Serie A


Inter Milan edged closer to their first Scudetto since 2010 with a 1-1 draw at Spezia that took them 10 points clear at the top of Serie A.

Diego Farias' early goal put the hosts in front but Ivan Perisic levelled for Antonio Conte's side.

Earlier on Wednesday, AC Milan's hopes of catching their city rivals were dented by a 2-1 home loss to Sassuolo.

Meanwhile, Juventus came from behind to beat struggling Parma 3-1 and boost their hopes of a top-four finish.

A double from full-back Alex Sandro helped Andrea Pirlo's side recover after Gaston Brugman's opener before Matthijs de Ligt rounded off the scoring.

European Super League Q&AEuropean Super League cannot proceed, says Juve's Agnelli

Sassuolo coach Roberto de Zerbi had said he wanted to boycott his team's trip to Milan after they were named as founder members of a new European Super League on Sunday, alongside Inter and Juve.

And prior to kick-off Milan legend and club director Paolo Maldini apologised to fans for his club's involvement in the collapsed project.

"This was obviously decided at a higher level in the club than my own position," Maldini said.

"I felt a bit confused. That doesn't rule me out of taking responsibility for apologising to the fans, not just the Milan fans, but in general football fans, who felt betrayed by the principles of sport that we as Milan have always respected.


"We certainly cannot push past the values of sport and of meritocracy, which are made of dreams."

Fourth-placed Atalanta, who are two points behind Milan and a point behind Juve, travel to Roma on Thursday (17:30 GMT).
