MILAN (AP) Inter Milan came from behind to rescue a 1-1 draw at Sampdoria and move provisionally top of Serie A on Sunday ahead of Fiorentina's match against Atalanta.

Inter dropped its first points of the season last week in a 4-1 loss to Fiorentina but avoided a second successive defeat when Ivan Perisic canceled out Luis Muriel's opener.

Roberto Mancini's side moved a point above Fiorentina. Roma was two points behind Inter after winning 4-2 at Palermo, while Lazio was two points further back ahead of its match against Frosinone.
