Serie A leaders Inter Milan were held to a draw by reigning champions Napoli at the San Siro after a late Juan Jesus goal.

Former Manchester United defender Matteo Darmian scored the opening goal for Inter on the stroke of half-time with a close-range finish from Alessandro Bastoni's cutback.

In the 83rd minute, Napoli defender Jesus rose highest from a corner to head home to equalise against his former club.

Simone Inzaghi's side are now 14 points clear of AC Milan at the top of Serie A while Francesco Calzona's side remain in seventh - nine points adrift of the top four.

Napoli's leading scorer Victor Osimhen spent the full 90 minutes on the bench and watched his team struggled to threaten in the first half.

However, Napoli, who won their first Scudetto in 33 years last year, rallied in the second period to ensure Inter dropped points at home for just the third time this term.
