Inter must wait for title

May 10, 2009 21:14 IST

Inter Milan will have to wait at least another week to seal the Serie A title after drawing 2-2 at Chievo on Sunday.

Forwards Hernan Crespo and Mario Balotelli twice gave the champions the lead but superb strikes from Michele Marcolini and Luciano meant Chievo took another step towards safety.

Second-placed AC Milan can cut Inter's lead to five points with three to play if they beat Juventus at home later (1830 GMT). Inter would have secured the scudetto if they had won and Milan lost.

Fiorentina strengthened their grip on the fourth Champions League spot with a 2-0 win at Catania while fifth-placed Genoa drew 1-1 at Atalanta.
