PARMA - Fabio Simplicio scored as in-form Parma beat Inter 1-0 in Saturday's Serie A Week 31 clash at the Ennio Tardini to record their fourth consecutive win and end the Nerazzurri's unbeaten run of five league matches.

The result keeps Mancini's side two points behind AC Milan ahead of this evening's clash at the Meazza between the Rossoneri and Fiorentina.

Inter started the brighter and were presented with two early chances as Dejan Stankovic glanced a header inches wide of the post before going just as close with a 20-yard strike from the distance.

Alvaro Recoba then forced Luca Bucci into a difficult one-handed save with a shot on the turn then Walter Samuel had a header blocked by the Parma keeper.

The Gialloblu took the lead from a counter-attack six minutes before the break. Bernardo Corradi ran on to a pass down the left, entered the Inter area then crossed for Simplicio to fire past Toldo after a defensive mistake by Wome.

Toldo pulled off a terrific point blank save from Corradi's fierce diagonal shot then made a two-fisted save from Mark Bresciano's curling free kick as Parma made the better start to the second period. The Nerazzurri keeper was called into action again with two more saves in quick succession from the Australian midfielder.

Mancini threw on Cruz and Martins to join Recoba in attack and the balance of play changed as Inter got forward more in the final stages. But Luca Bucci did what De Sanctis did in midweek, parrying headers from Recoba then Cambiasso to deny the Nerazzurri a late equaliser.
