Inter Milan 2-0 Chievo: Nerazzurri well on track for a top-four finish

Matteo Politano and Ivan Perisic fired Inter Milan into third in the race for Serie A’s Champions League spots.

The Nerazzurri beat rock-bottom Chievo, who are already relegated and had Nicola Rigoni sent off, at the San Siro on Monday.

Inter are four points ahead of fifth-placed AC Milan with two games remaining, with the top four guaranteed a place in the Champions League group stages.

Politano opened the scoring from 18 yards six minutes before the break and Perisic added a second four minutes from time.

Elsewhere, Bologna eased their relegation worries as they took a big step to safety with a 4-1 win over Parma.

Sinisa Mihajlovic’s side moved five points clear of the bottom three with two games remaining while Parma are two points further behind.

Riccardo Orsolini opened the scoring after 52 minutes and seven minutes later Luigi Sepe’s own goal made it 2-0.

Former Rangers defender Bruno Alves was dismissed for the visitors and Lyanco increased Bologna’s lead 18 minutes from time.

Roberto Inglese pulled a goal back but Francisco Sierralta’s own goal compounded Parma’s woe with six minutes left.
