Mateo Kovacic scored his second goal in as many matches as Inter Milan fought back from a goal down to draw with Palermo.

The Croatian midfielder shot from the edge of the box after Franco Vazquez had given the hosts an early advantage.

Vazquez stole the ball from Serbian defender Nemanja Vidic and scored from a tight angle.

Dani Osvaldo almost won it for Inter but Palermo goalkeeper Stefano Sorrentino was equal to his header.

Former Manchester United defender Vidic had a headed effort ruled out for offside as Walter Mazzarri's team pressed for a winner.

Palermo had Sorrentino to thank as they held on to collect their second point of the season.
