Juve pip Inter with late goals

Juve pip Inter with late goals Juve pip Inter with late goals

Juve saw their advantage at the top of the table cut to a single point by Napoli last weekend, Kalidou Koulibaly heading home a last-minute victor in Turin.

Still smarting from last week's home defeat by Napoli which threw open the title race, Juventus got off to a flying start when Douglas Costa collected Cuadrado's crossfield pass and scored from a narrow angle in the 13th minute. But we went to sleep in the dressing-room. Minutes later Vecino was shown red for a foul on Mario Mandzukic.

Against all the odds, Inter turned the game around as Mauro Icardi equalised shortly after halftime and veteran Juventus defender Andrea Barzagli turned Ivan Perisic's low cross into his own net.

But in a late flurry a Cuadrado shot across goal took a deflection off Skriniar and Higuain headed in from close range off a Paulo Dybala free-kick.

Juve coach Massimiliano Allegri was sent off for entering the pitch after Higuain's goal.

Roma next faces Liverpool in the Stadio Olimpico Wednesday where it has to overturn a 5-2 first-leg deficit to advance to the final.

Inter Milan had a rough night last night as they lost to Juventus. This is one of those matches where you must take responsibility and look to come up with the plays that make the difference.

Inter have a chance to derail Juve's chase for a seventh successive title when the two sides meet at San Siro on Saturday and boost their own hopes of qualifying for the Champions League after a six-season absence.

"We did the job by taking all three points, all the matches until the end will be decisive", said Lyon midfielder Lucas Tousart. "And how must we be after seven years without winning anything?"
