Inter Milan move four points clear in the title race with victory over Juventus

Inter Milan celebrate goal vs Juventus
Inter Milan secured an important victory against their title rivals Juventus at the San Siro and remain top of the table.

Inter Milan headed into the game just one point above Juventus and did a good job getting past the Old Lady with a 1-0 victory to go four points clear on the league table.

Federico Gatti’s first-half own goal was enough to get the win for the home side after a tumultuous 90 minutes.

As it happened between Inter Milan and Juventus

The San Siro was in a frenzy for a blockbuster meeting of its top two sides, with a daunting atmosphere awaiting the Juve players. They were far from overawed though, as despite Inter’s dominance of possession in the early stages, the Nerazzurri were finding precious little joy in the final third.

The visitors’ biggest scare of the opening half-hour came as a result of a gorgeous defence-splitting pass from Hakan Çalhanoğlu which found Federico Dimarco, but after he’d squared the ball to find Marcus Thuram, Gleison Bremer produced a vital challenge to deny the Frenchman a tap-in.

Massimiliano Allegri, Juventus manager, made three changes to his team that played a 1-1 draw with Empoli.

Inter Milan started the game brightly and made several attempts to get the first goal of the game against Juventus.

Their effort was crowned with the first goal of the game in the 37th minute, when Federico Gatti tried to clear a cross into the six-yard box but instead sent the ball behind his goalkeeper.

The visitors to the San Siro had their chances, with Dusan Vlahovic missing a gilt-edged opportunity for the Bianconeri when a poor first touch let him down following Weston McKennie’s pass.

The Serbian striker also attempted an overhead kick from a corner, which sailed over the bar.

Nicolo Barella’s strike on the volley was brilliantly saved by Juventus goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny, who also denied substitute Marko Arnautovic late on.

The referee blew the final whistle, with Inter claiming a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Juventus and increasing the gap in the table.

The Nerazzurri are the only side yet to concede a league goal after the 75th minute this season. Inter will travel to Roma on Saturday, for their next Serie A game. They last won Serie A in the 2020-21 campaign.
