Juventus pick up a point late to keep Inter Milan from winning

Juventus took an 88 minute penalty to equalize Inter Milan who led most of the game.

The Nerazzurri settled into the game quickly and started putting pressure on the old lady, but we managed to push our rivals back.

Alvaro Morata forced Samir Handanovic to make a super save in the first 10 minutes before Alex Sandro parried a softer shot as well, but everything was not smooth from now on.

Just as we looked like we were going to hold the game, we were hit back by a goal. Hakan Calhanoglu snapped to catch Wojciech Szczesny off guard, but the shot was deflected by Giorgio Chiellini before striking the post, leaving the Polish goalkeeper stranded when Edin Dzeko pounced on the loose ball to crash into the open net To score goal.

Aside from some unnecessary challenges and yellow cards, there were few clear opportunities in the remainder of the half and Allegri seemed to change formation early in the new half, falling back from the chain of three to the 4-4-2 that was used on our previous outings .

The two teams continued to struggle in midfield, with both teams seemingly breaking down the attacks before they could force many chances before Inter got close to the hour. Edin Dzeko was found after a clean cross from the wing, but could only divert his attempt from the outside of the post.

Allegri switched to Federico Chiesa and Paulo Dybala in the 65th minute as we tried to get back into the game and the move brought much needed energy.

The Serie A champions have appeared to have been on the defensive for the last 25 minutes, allowing Juve to attack them and work their way into opportunities, although the latter certainly wasn’t easy.

Allegri then attempted one final roll of the dice, substituting Kaio Jorge and Arthur for McKennie and Morata, and drama ensued with just under five minutes of the 90 remaining.

VAR saw a penalty for the old lady after Alex Sandro was kicked right on the edge of the box and Paulo Dybala made no mistake sending Handanovic the wrong way.

The duel ended tense with five minutes of stoppage time, but unfortunately there was no victory dance for either side.

I think both sides will accept the result while watching the game, but neither side will be overly satisfied with their overall performance.
