Inter Milan scored twice in the last seven minutes to secure a dramatic 2-1 win at Parma as they remain third in Serie A.

After an early opener from former Arsenal striker Gervinho, Inter looked likely to drop points but hit back with headers from Stefan de Vrij and Alessandro Bastoni in the closing stages.

Parma were also reduced to 10 men after De Vrijs' goal when Juraj Kucka was sent off for protesting.

Luis Muriel scored twice after coming off the bench in Atalanta's 3-2 win at Udinese.

The Bergamo team is pushing for third again this season, remaining four points behind Inter in fourth.

Kevin Lasagna netted a brace for Udinese but Duvan Zapata and Muriel produced the goods for a side that has now broken its club record of goals scored in a single season, reaching 80, with 10 games still to play. The previous record was 77 last season when it finished a club-best third place.
