Inter beat AC Milan

3:09 pm on 16 January 2012

Inter Milan thrust themselves back into Italian football's Serie A title race with a crucial 1-nil win away to city rivals AC Milan at the San Siro.

Veteran Argentine forward Diego Milito rolled back the years to score the only goal of the game and move fifth-placed Inter to within five points of their neighbours, who are a point behind leaders Juventus.

The top three picked up only a point between them, with Juve's 1-all draw at home to Cagliari enough for them take over sole ownership of top spot.

Third-placed Udinese lost 3-2 at Genoa and, with fourth-placed Lazio winning, there are just six points separating the top five.
