Juventus beat Italian champion Inter 3-2 in the match valid for the penultimate matchday of Serie A and keep the hopes of qualification in the Champions League alive. In the match characterized by the decisions of the referee Calvarese, the bianconeri break the deadlock in the 24th minute with Ronaldo, who bags after the penalty rejected by Handanovic. Inter drew from the spot in the 35th minute with Lukaku. Before the break, Juve put their heads ahead with Cuadrado, who hit the center from outside the area in the 48th minute. In the second half, Inter poured forward and took the game in hand, thanks to the expulsion of Bentancur: Juve remained in 10 in the last half hour and tried to hold up. The fort collapses in the 83rd minute when Chiellini, pressed by Lukaku, bags into his own goal: 2-2. Calvarese first cancels for a contact between the two players, then validates after analyzing the images. All finished? Not at all. It starts again and Juve moves forward. Cuadrado wins a penalty and, given Ronaldo’s exit, goes to the spot: goal, 3-2 and Juve remains alive for the Champions League. The formation coached by Pirlo rises to 75 points and temporarily removes the fourth place from Napoli, which is at 73 and must face Fiorentina.
