Juve pip Inter with late goals

Juve pip Inter with late goals

Maurizio Sarri's second-placed Napoli could cut the gap on Juventus to just one point when they visit Fiorentina this morning (Singapore time).

Inter are fifth, a point behind Lazio, who play late Sunday at Torino, in the race for the final Champions League spot.

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.

The Turin side were facing an embarrassing defeat which would have left the door open for title rivals Napoli until Juan Cuadrado's shot went in off Milan Skriniar with three minutes left and Gonzalo Higuain headed a victor at a stunned San Siro.

Juve were facing a dramatic defeat until Cuadrado's shot from an impossible angle deflected in off Skriniar with three minutes left.

Higuain had been guilty of missing a fantastic chance with the score at 1-1, but the former Napoli striker significantly dented the Partenopei's title hopes with an 89th-minute header to spark wild celebrations and revive hopes for the away fans that the Scudetto, somewhat improbably, remains in Juve's hands.

'We didn't stop to greet you against Napoli because we were too angry, we went to talk with our opponents because it is our habit to do so, win or lose.

The host dominated even after Brazilian defender Juan Jesus was sent off for fouling Inglese and Alisson saved the resulting penalty, with El Shaarawy and Dzeko adding two more within 10 minutes.

Earlier, Roma hardly noticed having a man dismissed as they beat visiting Chievo 4-1 with a brace from Edin Dzeko helping them strengthen their hold on third place. "In the end, it's the great players who decide matches".

"On the pitch, everything will have to be done in the right way, we'll need to be able to read different situations because Juventus know how to adapt very well at every moment".
