Sampdoria fought back twice to hold Inter and were only denied a winner by a goal-line clearance, in a game with two spectacular volleys and a magic Federico Dimarco free-kick.
The Nerazzurri had gone in front at Marassi with the very definition of a ‘top bins’ strike from Dimarco, which was clocked travelling at 106km/h and simply unstoppable for Emil Audero.
Maya Yoshida drew level thanks to a lucky deflection off Edin Dzeko.
It was a battle of the volleys, Lautaro Martinez and Tommaso Augello both scoring stylistically spectacular finishes.
Mikkel Damsgaard thought he’d won it for Sampdoria, but didn’t count on a Danilo D’Ambrosio goal-line clearance.
