Inter Milan came from behind to rescue a 1-1 draw at Sampdoria and move provisionally top of Serie A on Sunday ahead of Fiorentina's match against Atalanta.

Inter dropped its first points of the season last week in a 4-1 loss to Fiorentina but avoided a second successive defeat when Ivan Perisic canceled out Luis Muriel's opener.

Roberto Mancini's side moved a point above Fiorentina. Roma was two points behind Inter after winning 4-2 at Palermo, while Lazio was two points further back ahead of its match against Frosinone.

Juventus was playing bottom club Bologna later looking for only its second win in seven matches, while Napoli was visiting AC Milan.

Elsewhere, Sassuolo saw its unbeaten run end with a 1-0 loss at Empoli and Udinese drew 1-1 against Genoa.
