ROME: Serie A leaders Inter Milan were held to a 1-1 draw in Genoa after Marko Arnautovic’s goal was cancelled out by a header from the hosts’ Radu Dragusin.

Inter are top with 45 points but the result gives second-placed Juventus, on 40, an opportunity to close the gap as they host AS Roma on Saturday. Genoa are 13th with 20.

Inter broke the deadlock after 42 minutes when Arnautovic found himself in the right place to tap home a rebound off the post following Nicolo Barella’s volley.

But Genoa equalised in first-half stoppage time when Dragusin’s powerful header from a corner eluded Yann Sommer despite the goalkeeper getting both hands on the ball.
