A decisive goal from Inter Milan’s Gary Medel against Roma put them top of the table, however Miralem Pjanic saw red at the San Siro.

It was second against first with only two points separating them, but Roberto Mancini made some surprising changes. He gave Danilo D’Ambrosio his first start, above all dropping Mauro Icardi and Geoffrey Kondogbia so Adem Ljajic faced his former teammates. Felipe Melo was suspended and Daniele De Rossi only fit for the bench, while Francesco Totti, Seydou Keita and Kevin Strootman missed out.
Inter had won just one of the last 11 meetings with the Giallorossi, home and away in all competition. This was the fight between the best defence and most prolific attack in Serie A.

Fredy Guarin, wearing the captain’s armband, almost surprised Wojciech Szczesny from all of 70 yards out, but the goalkeeper plucked it out from under the bar.
Samir Handanovic at full stretch finger-tipped an Edin Dzeko header just round the post, but moments later at the other end Szczesny had to flap away a dangerous Marcelo Brozovic effort that went across the face of goal.

The Giallorossi dominated for long periods, but a combination of poor finishing and Samir Handanovic saves neutered the leaders.
