Serie A leaders Juventus suffered a shock 2-1 defeat at Verona as the battle for the scudetto took another twist.
Douglas Costa saw an early effort rattle the crossbar before the hosts unbeaten in seven league games had a goal ruled out by VAR for offside after Marash Kumbullas glancing header from a free-kick.
Cristiano Ronaldo struck the post late in the first half and then broke the deadlock following a swift counter attack on 65 minutes.
Verona, though, were level with 15 minutes left when Fabio Borini latched onto an error from Miralem Pjanic and produced a cool, angled finish.

The home fans were screaming for a penalty after Leonardo Bonucci deflected a header from Marash Kumbulla onto the crossbar with a raised arm.
The referee reviewed the incident on the pitchside monitor, and awarded a spot-kick, which substitute Giampaolo Pazzini crashed past Wojciech Szczesny to cause an upset.
Inter could now go level on points with Juventus at the top of the table if they win the Milan derby on Sunday, while Lazio can also close to within a point.
Earlier, Atalanta had consolidated their place in the top four after coming from behind to win 2-1 at Fiorentina, while Torino started life under new boss Moreno Longo with a 3-1 home defeat to Sampdoria and finished the match with 10 men.

Bayer Leverkusen ended Borussia Dortmunds Bundesliga charge with two late goals to seal a thrilling 4-3 win at the BayArena.
Dortmund driven on by January signing Erling Braut Haland had been out to further close the gap on the top two as they went in search of a fourth straight league win following their midweek DFB-Pokal cup defeat at Werder Bremen.
Kevin Volland gave Leverkusen the lead after 20 minutes, which was soon cancelled out when Mats Hummels headed from a corner.
Midfielder Emre Can, playing against one of his former clubs, put Dortmund in front with a fine curling effort after 33 minutes, but Volland levelled at 2-2 just before half-time.
No words needed!
