Inter 1-0 Roma: Medel missile sends Nerazzurri to Serie A summit

A sensational strike from the Chilean was enough to catapult Roberto Mancini’s men over their Scudetto rivals

Gary Medel’s powerful strike helped Inter defeat Roma 1-0 and leapfrog their opponents at the top of Serie A.

The defensive midfielder is not known for getting on the scoresheet, but nearly burst Wojciech Szczesny’s net with his 25-yard effort right after the half-hour mark with what proved the winner.

Chances continued coming for both sides, but any hopes of a Giallorossi comeback were ended when Miralem Pjanic picked up a bizarre second yellow card. 

The Bosnian playmaker was spotted by referee Nicola Rizzoli for using his hand to block a ball, and was sent off with no protest on his part.
