Novara beats Inter 3-1 to put heat on Gasperini

AP, Tuesday 20 Sep 2011

Inter Milan was handed another humiliating loss Tuesday, with its 10-man side losing 3-1 to newly promoted Novara to pile the pressure on manager Gian Piero Gasperini


Inter is winless in five matches in all competitions this season and has just one point from three league games.

In a match marked by Inter’s defensive lapses, Novara forward Riccardo Meggiorini scored on the break in the 38th minute. Inter’s Andrea Ranocchia was sent off for tugging down Japan forward Takayuki Morimoto inside the area and Marco Rigoni converted the resulting penalty in the 86th.

Esteban Cambiasso pulled one back for Inter in the 89th but Rigoni restored Novara’s two-goal lead in added time.
