INTER HOLD CAGLIARI TO DRAW




CAGLIARI - Inter's 3,500th competitive match finished in a draw as the Nerazzurri played out a 2-2 stalemate with Cagliari at the Sant'Elia on the final day of the Serie A season.

The Nerazzurri twice came back from behind, with Julio Cruz and Santiago Solari replying to Rossoblu goals from Capone and Suazo.

Andrea Capone rose above Zanetti and headed in an Esposito cross to give the Rossoblu an 8th-minute lead, but Cruz brought the teams level three minutes later with his 15th goal of the Serie A season, a curling free kick which hit the Cagliari wall on its way into the bottom left corner.

Suazo restored the home side's lead just after the half-hour mark, slotting into an open goal after Cordoba failed to block Esposito's ball in from the right. But once again the Nerazzurri's reaction was immediate. Receiving a Cruz cut-back, Solari drifted past two opponents before rifling an unstoppable left-foot shot past Chimenti for his fifth goal in an Inter shirt.

After the restart Roberto Mancini handed first-team debuts to three Inter Primavera players. Domenico Germinale replaced Pierre Wome early on but was forced off in the closing stages with an ankle knock. On came Germinale's Primavera strike partner Ilario Aloe who went close to a dramatic winner for the Nerazzurri but his shot from inside the Cagliari area on 89 minutes was saved by Chimenti's feet. Defender Leonardo Bonucci replaced Santiago Solari on the stroke of full time.

Inter finish the Serie A season in third place with 76 points from 38 matches.
