Juventus 3-2 Inter: Cristiano Ronaldo strike and Juan Cuadrado’s brace secures dramatic win despite Rodrigo Bentancur dismissal as Old Lady keep Champions League hopes alive

Juventus emerge from the incredibly dramatic 90 minutes at the Allianz Stadium with a 3-2 win, after what must have been referee Gianpaolo Calvarese’s busiest evening of the year.

Juventus kept their Champions League qualification hopes alive despite spending most of the second half with 10 men.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored on the rebound to put Juve ahead after his spot-kick was saved, and Romelu Lukaku scored his penalty for Inter soon after.

Three yellow cards and two penalties in the first-half was met by an equally stunning second frame which saw six yellow cards, two sendings off, a Chiellini own goal allowed after VAR intervention.

Juve regained the lead on the brink of halftime through a deflected Cuadrado strike, but the hosts were reduced to 10 men early in the second half when Rodrigo Bentancur picked up a second yellow.

Inter drew level through a Giorgio Chiellini own goal and Cuadrado responded with the winning penalty on the 88th minute, but there was still time for Marcelo Brozovic to be sent off for the visitors for a second booking.

Juve’s Derby d’Italia win sees them jump Napoli into fourth place and into a Champions League spot ahead of matches tomorrow for Milan and the aforementioned Partenopei.

Although Napoli will knock the Turin club back into fifth if they beat Fiorentina on Sunday.

The loss for Inter is merely a statistic, as Conte’s side have already clinched the Scudetto.

Juventus will contest the Coppa Italia final against Atalanta on Wednesday, before wrapping up their season on Saturday at Bologna. Inter close their successful campaign at home against Udinese.
