·1 min read

FLORENCE, Italy — Inter Milan is on top of Serie A after winning at Fiorentina 2-0. Nicolò Barella scored a great first-half opener and Ivan Perišic doubled the lead shortly after the break. That gave the Nerazzurri their first win in Florence since 2014. Inter moved a point above AC Milan. The Rossoneri host bottom-place Crotone on Sunday. Inter had chances to extend its lead and Lukaku also had a goal ruled out for offside. Inter was looking to bounce back from Tuesday’s loss to Juventus in the first leg of the Italian Cup semifinals. The second leg is in Turin next week.
