In-form Mauro Icardi scored two headers as Inter Milan beat Atalanta to move into second place in Serie A.

Inter, who have not lost since hiring manager Luciano Spalletti in June, took advantage of Juventus’ defeat by Sampdoria to move above the champions and within two points of Napoli.

They led through captain Icardi’s header from Antonio Candreva’s corner.

The Argentine then scored his 13th goal in as many games, guiding Danilo D’Ambrosio’s cross into the net.

Icardi had most of the game’s big chances, forcing two saves from Etrit Berisha and flashing a header wide.
