AC Milan opened the door for Inter Milan to temporarily reclaim the lead in the 2021/2022 Italian Serie A title race after drawing 0-0 with Torino on Sunday.

The Rossoneri were tasked with responding after Inter Milan’s 2-0 win over Hellas Verona on Saturday, which moved the Nerazzurri just a point adrift.

But, after seeing fellow challengers Napoli slip up with a 3-1 home defeat to Fiorentina, AC Milan also stumbled.

Clear-cut chances were few and far between, with AC Milan failing to take advantage of their edge in possession.

It means Inter Milan can go a point ahead at the top with a win at Spezia on Friday, when they kick off two hours before AC Milan host Genoa.

Davide Calabria’s long-range effort drew a strong save from Etrit Berisha in the 24th minute before Torino midfielder Samuele Ricci fired wide of the near post at the other end.

Mike Maignan tipped over from Mergim Vojvoda five minutes after the restart as Torino created the better opportunities in the second half.

Sandro Tonali was denied by Berisha after cleverly working his way into the penalty box.

Andrea Belotti saw a chance to secure a shock win for Torino to go begging when he fired into the side-netting.
