Inter Milan end ‘San Siro’ curse to sneak into title race
Inter Milan finally launched what has been billed an unlikely bid for Italy’s Serie A title after a pulsating 2-1 win over Fiorentina moved them up to  third in the table.

City rivals Inter and AC Milan had both failed to win at their shared ground in their first three league games, prompting Italian media to suggest both were subject to a San  Siro curse.

But after Milan shook that monkey off their back on Sunday with a 2-0 home win over Cagliari in midweek.

Inter followed suit with a solid performance which gave Andrea  Stramaccioni’s side a fourth win in six games. Diego Milito opened the scoring for Inter in the 17th minute, beating La Viola ‘keeper Emiliano Viviano from the penalty spot following a handball.

Antonio Cassano was then left unmarked on the left of the area ashe punished Fiorentina’s slack marking to double the lead in the 34th  minute.

Fiorentina fought back, with Romulo’s powerful header in 40th minute.
