Roma and Inter played out a thrilling 2-2 draw at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday in a match that ebbed and flowed.

Achraf Hakimi had seemed set to be the hero for Antonio Conte's men with a brilliant strike after Milan Skriniar had cancelled out Lorenzo Pellegrini's opener.

However, a late header from Gianluca Mancini earned the Giallorossi a point in a game where Antonio Conte will be questioned for his decision to substitute Hakimi while Inter were well on top.

So who were the best and worst players on the pitch?

✔️ GOOD PERFORMANCE

Achraf Hakimi: 7.1

Hakimi had a somewhat slow start to his Inter career after his big-money move from Real Madrid last summer, but he has really exploded into life over the last month.

He scored a stunning strike for the Nerazzurri against Roma, cutting in from the right-hand side and curling a stunning left-footed shot into the far top corner off the underside of the bar. That is now his fifth Serie A goal since the start of December.

The ex-Dortmund star was a constant threat with his pace on the counter-attack and he had two shots on target, as well as an impressive five touches in the Roma penalty area. Conte made a big mistake taking him off while leading 2-1.

BAD PERFORMANCE

Edin Dzeko: 5.8

Still Roma's talisman in attack at the age of 34, Dzeko had a disappointing afternoon versus Inter.

He struggled to make any kind of impact, with only one attempted shot (which was off target), no noteworthy chances created and no dribbles.

He also had a disappointing pass completion rate of 68% from his 22 passes.

STAR MAN

Marcelo Brozovic 7.9

The Croatian was the outstanding player on the pitch, dictating and distributing the play superbly in the centre of the field.

He assisted both of Inter's goals. The first came from a typically pin-point corner, which was headed home by Milan Skriniar. The second assist saw him provide the ball to Hakimi before the wing-back curled home a beauty.

Brozovic boasted an impressive 89 per cent pass completion rate from his 73 passes, touching the ball more than anyone else on the pitch.

He also did well to avoid a yellow card in a keenly-contested match, meaning he will not be suspended for the big clash with Juventus next week.
