Fiorentina 5-4 Inter Milan

Mauro Icardi
Mauro Icardi has scored 24 Serie A goals this season

Inter Milan captain Mauro Icardi scored a hat-trick but his side lost to Fiorentina to dent their Europa League qualification hopes.

Matias Vecino put the hosts head, before Ivan Perisic levelled and Icardi made it 2-1 at the break to Inter, who remain seventh - now only one point above their opponents.

Federico Bernardeschi had a penalty saved for Fiorentina but Davide Astori levelled and they led 5-2 through a further goal from Vecino and a Khouma Babacar double.

Icardi scored twice more in the last three minutes - becoming the first Inter player since Christian Vieri in 2001 to score a Serie A hat-trick away from home - but it was not enough.
