Inter Milan kept their Serie A title dreams alive with a 3-1 win over Cagliari on Sunday night to stay within two points of leaders AC Milan. 

The visitors sent the Serie A title race to the final day while dealing Cagliari’s hopes of top-flight survival a blow. 

Inter head to the final game of the season in need of a win against Sampdoria and with the hope AC Milan slip up at Sassuolo to knock their local rivals off their top spot.

Milan Skriniar looked to have opened the scoring for the visitors as he put the ball in the net after just ten minutes but VAR ruled that he had fumbled the ball over the line and his goal was chalked off for handball. 

Inter did eventually take a deserved lead as Ivan Perisic picked out Matteo Darmian on the right side of the box, who headed past a flailing Alessio Cragno.

Latauro Martinez doubled their lead with a clinical finish in the second half. VAR looked to threaten Inter’s scoring hopes once again but the Argentine had timed his run perfectly and an offside check saw his shot stand. 

But any thought of the game being wrapped up was quickly dashed as the hosts struck back immediately through Charalampos Lykogiannis as his rocket from outside the box handed them a lifeline.
