Inter Milan bounced back from a shock defeat against Cagliari in their previous match to beat SPAL 2-0 in Serie A on Sunday and stay on course for a place in next season’s Champions League.

Lautaro Martinez thought he had given Inter the lead in the 32nd minute but the goal was disallowed when a VAR review showed that the Argentine had used his hand to control the ball.

But luck turned Inter’s way when Matteo Politano scored with a deflected shot in the 67th minute and Roberto Gagliardini diverted a Cedric Soares effort into the net for a similar goal 10 minutes later.

Inter are fourth with 50 points, six clear of AS Roma, Torino and Atalanta. The top four qualify for next season’s Champions League.
