Inter Milan could only draw 1-1 at home to relegation-threatened Cagliari in Serie A on Sunday and is at risk of losing out on a European spot to Hellas Verona, which held on to win 3-2 at struggling Livorno.

Rolando secured a point for Inter after Mauricio Pinilla's penalty had given Cagliari the halftime lead.

Verona almost squandered a three-goal lead but won and moved a point behind fifth-placed Inter.

Torino can draw level with Verona if it beats leader Juventus in a derby match later.

Elsewhere, AC Milan recovered from its disappointing Champions League defeat to Atletico Madrid by winning 2-0 at Sampdoria, which had former Rossoneri striker Maxi Lopez sent off.

Also, Chievo Verona beat Catania 2-0 in a relegation fight and Udinese drew 1-1 against Atalanta.
