Inter Milan's Title Chase Continues Despite Cagliari Draw

Inter Milan's pursuit of the Serie A title remains on track despite a disappointing 2-2 draw at home to relegation-threatened Cagliari. The result leaves Inter with a 14-point lead over AC Milan, who also drew 3-3 at Sassuolo.

Cagliari's Nicolas Viola snatched a late equalizer for the visitors, canceling out Hakan Calhanoglu's penalty that had given Inter the lead following Eldor Shomurodov's equalizer. Inter manager Simone Inzaghi expressed frustration at the missed opportunity to extend their advantage.

"It's annoying not to win after going ahead twice because we wanted the victory in front of our fans," Inzaghi said. "We're very close to a big goal but we know that we still need points to make it mathematically certain."

Inter now need to win their next match, the Milan derby against AC Milan, to secure the Scudetto with five games remaining. However, Milan's Noah Okafor salvaged a point for his team in their match against Sassuolo, keeping their title hopes alive.

Meanwhile, Roma's Evan Ndicka is recovering after collapsing during their match at Udinese. The defender suffered an apparent chest problem, causing the game to be abandoned. Roma confirmed that Ndicka is in good spirits and undergoing further observations in the hospital.

The match will be resumed at a later date, with Roma currently in fifth place in the Serie A standings. They are well-positioned to qualify for next season's Champions League, as they hold a five-point advantage over sixth-placed Atalanta.

Napoli's hopes of finishing in the top five suffered a setback with a 2-2 draw at home to Frosinone. The result leaves Napoli six points behind Roma in eighth place. Frosinone remains in the relegation zone, level on points with Verona, who face Atalanta on Monday.
