Inter extended their winless streak to eight rounds and two months as Eder’s opener was wiped out by Andrea Barberis and brave Crotone.
This was their fourth consecutive stalemate and the San Siro crowd jeered them off the pitch.
In the absence of injured Mauro Icardi, Eder took the centre-forward role in a new 4-3-3 formation and it paid off when his header looped in with the aid of a deflection.
Crotone more than deserved their point with a strong pressing game and Barberis completed a give-and-go with Marcello Trotta to equalise.
Ivan Perisic missed a couple of sitters, as the Nerazzurri’s crisis drags on.
