Inter Milan came from behind to beat Fiorentina 2-1 in an entertaining match in the Italian league on Thursday and stay in touch with leader Roma.

Giuseppe Rossi continued his fine run of form since returning from injury, scoring from the penalty spot on the hour mark to take his tally to six goals in seven matches. Joaquin had been fouled by Juan Jesus.

It was only the second goal Inter had conceded this season.

Esteban Cambiasso leveled in acrobatic fashion in the 72nd minute and Jonathan scored what was to prove the winner seven minutes from time to cap an all-round performance from the Inter fullback.

Inter moved level with Juventus and Napoli, two points behind Roma. Fiorentina is three points further back after its first loss of the season.
