The big talking point of the night was new leaders Inter Milan dropping points for only the third time this season.

The Nerazzurri simply couldn’t beat the Roma defence, and failed to score for the first time this season.

Now Inter must hope that Juventus fail to beat Lazio on Saturday otherwise they will lose top spot in the Serie A standings.

“If you look at the game overall, Mirante was man of the match and Roma never really had a shot on goal, so possession matters little at that point,” Conte told Sky Sport Italia.

“We ran practically no risks against a great Roma side. These are the games where you have to score goals, because we had the opportunities and we forced them to make errors with our pressure and the runs from midfield.

“We could’ve been more determined in front of goal tonight and would’ve brought home the three points.”
