Inter overcame their midweek jitters to bounce back after their loss in Bologna by beating Udinese 2-1 on Sunday evening, keeping pressure on AC Milan ahead of them at the top of Serie A.

With the Rossoneri having claimed a huge late 1-0 win over Fiorentina earlier in the afternoon, Simone Inzaghi's side knew that they had to respond and move on from the heartache at the Stadio Dall'Ara, and they did just that.

Having struggled to really find any rhythm in the opening minutes, Inter were breathing a huge sigh of relief with just 12 minutes on the clock as Ivan Perisic finished off a Federico Dimarco corner to open the scoring.

Looking considerably calmer, Inter had overcome their nerves, at least for the time being. They had to wait until the 39th minute to double their lead though, after VAR intervened to award a penalty for a foul on Edin Dzeko.

Lautaro Martinez initially missed his spot kick, but headed home on the rebound as the ball came back off the foot of the post and Lorenzo Silvestri's back.

Although it looked for a while as though the champions would make it through comfortably, Ignacio Pussetto moved all Inter fans to the edge of their seats for the final 18 minutes.

Samir Handanovic had done well to deny Gerard Deulofeu with a freekick, but Destiny Udogie reacted first and centred for Pussetto to tap in.

Inter were shaky again, but Alexis Sanchez did well to lead the line and run down the clock in the final moments, with the Chilean forward and compatriot - and fellow former Barcelona player - Arturo Vidal keeping the ball in the corner for much of stoppage time.

With three games to play, Inter are second on 75 points, with Milan top on 77. The Rossoneri will win the title should they end the season level on points due to their superior head-to-head record, thanks to Olivier Giroud's brace in the season's second Derby della Madonnina.
