Serie A's bottom club Hellas Verona missed the chance to win back-to-back league games for the first time this season by throwing away a 3-1 lead and drawing 3-3 against top-four side Inter Milan this afternoon.

Visiting Inter took the lead after just seven minutes through Jeison Murillo, who rose well to powerfully head home a corner from the right.
The hectic start to the game continued as Verona then took the lead on the quarter-hour mark, and again it came from a set piece as Eros Pisano headed home a Marrone free kick.
That was how it stayed until half time, but Verona were at it again 12 minutes into the second half and once again a Marrone set piece proved to be Inter's undoing as Artur Ionita ran in untracked to power home a corner.
The remainder of the match was an entertaining end-to-end contest which saw both sides have several excellent opportunities, but it was Inter who grabbed the sixth goal to earn a point as Perisic's shot from a tight angle snuck in at the near post.
Inter have now won just one of their last six league games and miss the chance to go back above Fiorentina into the top three, while Verona are now nine points from safety.
