But the leaders showed their worth by scoring three unanswered goals to make the scoreline 1-3 in their favor.
Ilves, meanwhile, defeated this same Inter, that too on the road, in a five-goal thriller. The visitors put two quick-fire goals on the board, to take an early 0-2 lead. But sure enough, the hosts hit back two of their own to bring parity into the game.
Then, late into the tie, in the 82nd minute, the guests fired in their third and held it till the end to take the three points on offer.
