Juventus win at home against Inter in the Italian Derby


  • Juventus




At the end of the 13th day of Serie A, Juventus received Inter in Turin for the traditional Italian Derby. A top-of-the-table poster usually but not this season. Respectively 8th and 6th in the Italian championship, the two teams had the opportunity to return to the race to fight for European places in the event of victory this Sunday. From the start of the meeting, the Nerazzurri secured the first hot situation. Federico Dimarco struck on the left side and crossed hard in front of goal. At the far post, Filip Kostic awkwardly headed into the box. Lautaro Martinez resumed without control just to the left of the cages guarded by Wojciech Szczesny (5th). Shortly after, Fabio Miretti stupidly lost the ball and Hakan Calhanoglu could test the Polish goalkeeper again (10th). The Bianconeri got their first chance through Bremer. The Brazilian defender acrobatically took over a cross from Filip Kostic but his attempt ended in the side netting (19th). More dangerous during this first act, the Interists continued to put pressure on the opposing surface. On a cross from Federico Dimarco then a deflection from the head of Lautaro Martinez, Edin Dzeko was very close to finding the skylight (26th). Just before half-time, Denzel Dumfries sent a final thrill through the Juventus Stadium by propelling his recovery over the crossbar when he was strangely alone (42nd). Very little dangerous until then, Juventus lost far too many balloons to worry the interist rearguard.

Returning from the locker room, Hakan Calhanoglu hooked Fabio Miretti and unleashed a heavy strike near the surface but Wojciech Szczesny deflected with his fingertips on his crossbar (48th). Against the course of the game, the Bianconeri then relied on their individualities. Filip Kostic came up the field on the left and sent a millimeter center for Adrien Rabiot at the edge of the opposing area. The Frenchman followed directly with a nice cross shot which ended its race in the opposite side net of André Onana (52nd, 1-0). This opener allowed Juventini to take control of the game and Massimiliano Allegri’s players came close to achieving the perfect hold-up. On the corner of Filip Kostic, Danilo, launched, opened his left foot to pierce André Onana (63rd) but the VAR intervened to signal a hand from the Brazilian defender and therefore cancel his goal (65th). Note the return to competition of Federico Chiesa, entered in place of Arkadiusz Milik and applauded by the Turin supporters (73rd). Shortly after, Wojciech Szczesny made the save by repelling the strike from Lautaro Martinez (75th) with his toes. In the process, Juventus finally got a new opportunity. Filip Kostic saw his half-volley, on the left of the surface, being diverted by André Onana on his post (76th). And finally the teammates of Adrien Rabiot found the fault once again to make a success of the break and give themselves some air thanks to the second achievement in Serie A by Nicolo Fagioli, served by the untenable Serbian midfielder of Juventus (84th , 2-0). Shortly before the final whistle, Federico Chiesa, launched by Adrien Rabiot, lost his face to face with André Onana then was signaled in an offside position (88th). In the standings, this victory allows the Turinese to return to 5th place just two points from the podium while the Nerazzurri (7th) lose a place and sink into the soft underbelly of Serie A.
