Serie A - Week 28: Friday Review

Inter's lead at the top of Serie A could be down to a point by Sunday night after Jose Mourinho's side were surprisingly beaten 3-1 at Catania.

Catania 3-1 Inter
Catania condemned 10-man Inter to their heaviest defeat of the campaign with a 3-1 home victory, blowing the Serie A title race wide open. Diego Milito put the champions in front after 54 minutes, but Catania, who had the better of a goalless first half, refused to accept defeat and Maxi Lopez equalised 20 minutes later. Substitute Sulley Muntari was then sent off after only 85 seconds on the field. The Ghanaian was booked for a foul on Jorge Martinez and then sent off for handling the resulting free kick in the penalty area, and Giuseppe Mascara stepped up to the penalty to put his side in front with only nine minutes remaining. And Martinez sealed an historic and deserved win for the Rosazzurri in the last minute. The result means Inter's lead at the top of the table could be cut to just one point if city rivals AC Milan beat Chievo on Sunday, while Catania move eight points clear of the bottom three.
