Inter Milan 4-3 Fiorentina: Hosts open Serie A season with dramatic win
Inter Milan scored twice in the final three minutes as they beat Fiorentina in their opening Serie A game.
Christian Kouame put the visitors ahead, with Lautaro Martinez equalising for Inter just before half-time.
A Federico Ceccherini own goal put Inter ahead, before Gaetano Castrovilli and Federico Chiesa scored in a six-minute spell as Fiorentina lead again.
But Romelu Lukaku scored a late equaliser and Danilo D’Ambrosio headed in from Alexis Sanchez’s cross.
It was the first Serie A game to involve the lead being taken three times since 2010, when Inter beat Siena 4-3.
Antonio Conte’s Inter are hoping to deny Juventus a 10th successive Serie A title this year.
