Mauro Icardi scored two headers to fuel Inter Milan, who jumped Juventus for second place with a 2-0 win over Atalanta.

Captain Icardi opened the scoring six minutes into the second half at the San Siro when he powerfully met Antonio Candreva's right-wing free kick.

And the Argentina striker claimed his 13th goal of the season nine minutes later, stooping to nod Danilo D'Ambrosio's in-swinging centre into the bottom left corner as Inter made it 13 games without defeat this season.
