Inter Milan bounced back from two devastating losses to beat Chievo Verona 2-0 in Serie A on Saturday with second-half goals from Esteban Cambiasso and Maicon.

Inter players celebrate the victory

Inter was coming off a 3-0 derby loss to AC Milan and a 5-2 home defeat by Schalke in the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinals.

While Inter threatened throughout, it didn't break through until Cambiasso took a pass from Maicon in the 65th minute and watched as his shot deflected first off a defender and then off the crossbar before going in.

Maicon then pounced on a loose ball inside the area in the 84th and slid it in.

The five-time defending champion moved back into second place, two points behind Milan and one in front of Napoli.
