ROME (AFP) Inter Milan dropped two precious points after being held to a 2-2 draw at Fiorentina on Saturday and will lose top spot in Serie A should Roma win their home match against Atalanta on Sunday. A goal eight minutes from time from Per Kroldrup earned the Viola a deserved point after Inter had come from behind to snatch the lead in the second half. Prolific strike duo Diego Milito and Samuel Etoo had each steered home right-wing centres to cancel out Keirrisons early strike in an absorbing end-to-end contest. The result means Inter go two points clear of Roma having played a game more, while Fiorentina move up a place to eighth. After going ahead we gifted Fiorentina a second goal but these things happen in football - youre often most vulnerable after scoring, said Inter sporting director Marco Branca, who spoke as coach Jose Mourinho is boycotting the Italian press. We arent bothered what Roma do against Atalanta. Fiorentina coach Cesare Prandelli thought the draw was a fair result. Inter have strength of character and will always fight to the death. They put us under a lot of pressure and it was difficult to hold out. Their second goal was annoying because they shouldnt have been able to break from our corner. With Fiorentinas Peruvian left winger Juan Vargas injured and top scorer Alberto Gilardino only fit enough for the bench, Inter began the match on the front foot with Wesley Sneijder having a 20-yard shot tipped around the post. From the resulting corner Milito had a glorious chance to put Inter ahead but the Argentine could only hit the post. The Nerazzurri were soon made to pay as Fiorentina sliced through their defence in the 11th minute. Riccardo Montolivo waited for the right moment to release the marauding Gianluca Comotto, whose squared centre was slammed high into the net from eight yards by Brazilian prospect Keirrison. Jose Mourinhos men responded by dominating possession but could find no way through the well-organised Viola backline. The elusive Sneijder fizzed a 25-yarder a foot wide, Maicon sliced a volley horribly off target and Esteban Cambiasso, Cristian Chivu and Etoo all blasted well over from distance before the break. The home side continued to be dangerous on the counter-attack though and two minutes after the restart Stevan Jovetic almost doubled the lead but, slipped in by Montolivo, the Montenegrin screwed his finish wide of the far post. Just as it seemed Inter had run out of steam, they turned the game on its head with two copycat goals in six minutes. On 75 minutes Sneijder sprayed the ball wide to Maicon, whose first-time cross from the right was steered home by Milito, before substitute Mario Balotelli delivered the perfect centre for Etoo to score. Inters celebrations lasted but a minute, however, as goalkeeper Julio Cesar missed another cross and defender Kroldrup scrambled home from six yards to snatch a potentially telling point. In Saturdays early match, Napoli spurned the chance to climb into the Champions League places after falling 3-2 at home to Parma. Walter Mazzarris men appeared to be cruising after Fabio Quagliarella had side-footed them into a third-minute lead but Parma struck twice in six second-half minutes to go ahead through Luca Antonelli and Alessandro Lucarelli. Marek Hamsik levelled for Napoli on 78 minutes but after Quagliarella was given his marching orders for a second caution, Luis Jimenez struck with three minutes left to give Parma a rare away win. They move up to ninth, three places below Napoli.
