Chievo 0-2 Inter Milan

Inter Milan
Inter are now only six points behind third-placed Lazio.

Former Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini won his first game since returning to Inter Milan as they saw off 10-man Chievo.

Mancini won three Serie A titles with Inter between 2006 and 2008 but his current side are down in 11th, 16 points behind leaders Juventus.

Midfielder Mateo Kovacic opened the scoring when he seized on a poor clearance to beat Benjamin Bizzarri.

Andrea Ranocchia doubled the lead before Ruben Botta was sent off.

Mancini, 50, returned to Inter for the Milan derby last month, but, after a 1-1 draw presided over defeats by Roma and Udinese.
