Sampdoria fought back twice from behind to hold Serie A champions Inter Milan to a 2-2 draw on Sunday, as Simone Inzaghi's side dropped points for the first time this season.

Federico Dimarco thumped a free-kick into the top corner, but ex-Southampton defender Maya Yoshida equalised.

Lautaro Martinez then delightfully finished off a slick counter-attack for Inter on the stroke of half-time before Tommaso Augello smashed in a left-footed volley after the break.

Sampdoria remain winless after three games this season.

Simone Inzaghi's Inter side dropped points for the first time this campaign following back-to-back victories.

Both sides had chances to take all three points but neither found the decisive breakthrough, leaving Inter second with seven points and Sampdoria in 13th place with two points.

On Saturday,Napoli maintained their 100% record by beating winless Juventus, who were playing their first game since the departure of forward Cristiano Ronaldo to Manchester United.
