Inter need more for third

Inter have their best home run since May 2012, but George Rinaldi says they must be more clinical for third place.

It had looked as though Inter were going to be facing an uphill battle on Saturday evening. Mauro Icardi, their talismanic forward, was made to withdraw with a knee injury, leaving Roberto Mancini's men with Eder as their sole striker.

It wouldn't matter though, thanks to late goals from Ivan Perisic and Danilo D'Ambrosio that allowed them to march on toward a possible third place finish.

Icardi has sprained knee

Mauro Icardi will require tests for ligament damage after the Inter striker sprained his right knee.

The forward limped off just 10 minutes into this evening’s Serie A match against Bologna at San Siro.

Inter released a statement confirming he had twisted his right knee and the injury would be evaluated over the next few days.

There are concerns for the collateral ligament.

Even if there is no ligament damage, a sprain makes it highly unlikely Icardi will be ready to face Roma in next week’s showdown for third place.

Inter: 'Third or not, Mancini stays'

The Nerazzurri suffered a frightful decline in form in the second half of the season, and European qualification appears to be compromised yet again.
