Inter's Champions League hopes dented



Inter Milan's Champions League qualification hopes suffered a setback on Saturday when they were held to a scoreless draw by Atalanta in their Serie A clash.

With runaway leaders Juventus on 81 points and Napoli second on 77, Inter, Roma and Lazio – with 60 points each ahead of the Rome derby on Sunday night – are locked in a three-way battle for the last two Champions League spots.

Gambian teenager Musa Barrow lit up the first half for Atalanta with his electric pace and unpredictable movement, but he was withdrawn at halftime and replaced by Danish striker Andreas Cornelius, who could not offer the same threat.

In Barrow's absence, Inter improved drastically, but despite the best efforts of Mauro Icardi and Ivan Perisic, they could not break the deadlock and instead extended their run of Serie A games without a goal or win to three.
