Roma's Leandro Castan challenges Inter Milan"s Rodrigo Palacio

Roma's hopes of challenging league leaders Juventus for the Serie A title were dealt a big blow as they were held to a drab draw by Inter Milan.

The Giallorossi are eight points adrift of Juve, who have the chance to extend their advantage at AC Milan on Sunday.

Roma had the ball in the net as Mattia Destro's shot was scooped into his own net by goalkeeper Samir Handanovic, but the goal was disallowed for offside.

Miralem Pjanic had a shot saved by Handanovic after the break.
