Mauro Icardi scores the only goal as Inter Milan earn a 1-0 win away to Cesena in their Serie A match.

Inter Milan have claimed a 1-0 victory over Cesena to end a run of three Serie A matches without a win.

On the half-hour mark Cesena were reduced to 10 men when goalkeeper Nicola Leali was shown a straight red card for bringing down Rodrigo Palacio inside the box.

From the resulting penalty kick Mauro Icardi made no mistake with a composed effort that sent substitute keeper Federico Agliardi the wrong way.

Guido Marilungo almost brought his side level just minutes later, but he could only direct the ball over the bar from close range.

In the final minute of the first half Palacio had the ball in the back of the net, but his strike into the far corner was correctly ruled out for offside.

In the second half Hernanes came close to a second for Inter when he fired just wide of the post following a powerful run.

Mateo Kovacic was the next to threaten for the visitors with a stinging drive from the edge of the box that whistled just wide.

With five minutes of the match left Inter thought that they had doubled their lead when Hugo Campagnaro touched in Hernanes's free kick, but the defender was adjudged to have been standing in an offside position.

Icardi and Palacio then both saw efforts saved in stoppage time as Inter held on to move back into the top half of the table.
