Atalanta 1-1 Inter Milan
Argentine striker German Denis struck a superb equaliser to restrict Inter Milan to a point at Atalanta.
Denis outjumped compatriot Walter Samuel in the 25th minute and directed a powerful header into the top corner from a Maxi Moralez cross for his fifth goal of the season.
It came after Ricardo Alvarez had given Inter a 16th-minute lead.
Fourth-placed Inter are eight points behind Serie A leaders Roma, having played one game more.
Atalanta, who have not lost at home to Inter for five years, are eighth on 13 points after their first draw of the season.
In a frantic start in Bergamo, Inter's Fredy Guarin saw a deflected shot saved unconvincingly by Andrea Consigli, who spilled the ball behind for a corner.
The visitors threatened again when Yuto Nagatomo got to the byline down the left only for his cut-back, which would have left Rodrigo Palacio with a tap-in, to be intercepted at the near post by Michele Canini.
Inter took the lead when Mateo Kovacic's cross from the right was headed back by Palacio for Alvarez to squeeze a shot inside the post.
Mario Yepes should have levelled when he had a free header at the back post from a left-wing corner, but could only sent it wide.
The pressure was mounting on Inter and they were pegged back as Denis met a right-wing cross with a towering header that found the corner of the net.
Inter lost goalkeeper Samir Handanovic at half-time with an apparent injury, and Juan Pablo Carrizo came on in his place.
Carrizo earned his side a point in the dying minutes as he made a fine reaction save with his foot from a Yepes close-range effort.
