Two goals in the final three minutes of a dramatic Derby d’Italia gave Juventus a vital 2-3 win over Inter to put them in pole position in the race for the Scudetto.
The Bianconeri had the perfect start at the Giuseppe Meazza when Douglas Costa put them ahead on 13 minutes. Inter went down to ten men soon after when Matias Vecino saw red, but Mauro Icardi’s 27th goal of the season and an own goal by Andrea Barzagli looked to have won it for the hosts until the late, late drama.
First, Juve drew level when Milan Skriniar put through his own goal on 87, and then two minutes later, Paul Dybala crossed for Gonzalo Higuain to head home the winner.
Napoli had a disastrous start in Florence when Kalidou Koulibaly was dismissed after just six minutes for a rash challenge. The Viola took full advantage, with Giovanni Simeone helping himself to a hat-trick.
A Sergej Milinkovic-Savic header gave Lazio a 0-1 win against Torino to move third, and Roma warmed up for their upcoming Champions League clash with Liverpool by dispatching Chievo 4-1. Edin Dzeko grabbed a brace, and though Juan Jesus was sent off for the hosts, Chievo couldn’t capitalise and now find themselves in the bottom three.
New boys SPAL gleefully left the drop zone, coming from behind to win 1-3 in Verona, a result which leaves the hosts in big danger.
Atalanta, Milan and Sampdoria all won in the race for Europa League football, while
Udinese ended a run of 11 consecutive defeats with a 3-3 draw against bottom club Benevento. Meanwhile, Crotone boosted their chances of survival with a thumping 4-1 win at home to Sassuolo.
