Embattled Icardi misses penalty as Cagliari stun Inter

Handanovic did well to thwart Davide Di Gennaro, while Icardi’s glanced a header wide of Storari’s upright soon after.

Cagliari finally drew level when Di Gennaro’s ball over the defence deflected off Jeison Murillo, and Melchiorri sprung the offside trap to beat Handanovic with a 71st minute leveller.

Melchiorri almost had his second with a diving header that went inches wide, but the big striker made amends with a cross that took a deflection off Murillo before Handanovic somehow bundled it over the line five minutes from the end.

Inter’s efforts to snatch a late draw left them exposed at the back and only Mauricio Isla’s lack of finishing saved further embarrassment when the Chilean fired straight at Handanovic on a one-on-one.
