Serie A: Inter Milan held to another draw by Bologna

Inter Milan manager Walter Mazzarri

Inter Milan's frustrating campaign continued as they were held to a draw at struggling Bologna to remain fourth in the Serie A table.

Walter Mazzarri's side trailed to Panagiotis Kone's composed 12th-minute finish before building some momentum.

Rodrigo Palacio wasted a fine chance before Fredy Guarin hit the bar.

Inter finally levelled through defender Jonathan's deflected shot before Juan Jesus volleying against the Bologna woodwork in the dying moments.

It was Inter's fifth draw in 13 league games since Mazzarri was appointed manager in May and leaves them eight points behind leaders Juventus.

Elsewhere, Sinisa Mihajlovic was denied a winning start as Sampdoria coach when his 10-man team allowed Lazio's Lorik Cana to score with the last kick of the game to snatch a 1-1 draw after Roberto Soriano broke the deadlock.
