Serie A – Week 36 [Saturday, 16th May – 17:00 GMT] – Stadio San Siro
Juventus had nothing to play for but a Marchisio penalty and a howler from Handanovic gave the Bianconeri all 3 points in the Derby D’Italia
With Juve already league winners, this year’s Derby had a slightly unusual feel to it, especially given the lack of first team players featured. Max Allegri opted to rest Giorgio Chiellini, Andrea Pirlo, Gianluigi Buffon and Arturo Vidal while Alvaro Morata and Claudio Marchisio both started due to their suspensions in the Coppa Italia final.
Inter dominated the early period of the game and Mauro Icardi tested Marco Storari after just 2 minutes with a swerving shot wide of the far post. Alvaro Morata tried to get something going for Juve, going on a run through midfield but eventually blasting his effort into the side netting.
The Nerazzurri did eventually take the lead but there was some difference of opinion on the goal scorer. Marcelo Brozovic fired his shot from outside the box but it was Icardi with the final touch who redirected the ball into the net with his chest.
Morata seemed to be carrying the Juve attack by himself but his effort hit the side nettign again before Storari was on hand to deny Rodrigo Palacio at close range.
Marco Sturaro finally tested Samir Handanovic for the Bianconeri while Shaqiri’s great effort hit the frame of the goal before Brozovic turned in the rebound but it was ruled as offside.
Juve levelled the scores just before half-time when Nemanja Vidic bought down Alessandro Matri in the box. Claudio Marchisio converted from the spot to score his 35th goal in Juventus colours.
Alvaro Morata could easily have scored twice after the restart but he was denied by Danilo D’Ambrosio. Shaqiri put his shot wide before Brozovic was denied by Andrea Barzagli.
Juventus seemed content with the draw but were gifted all three points. Morata scuffed his effort at Handanovic but the ball bounced over the keeper and into the empty net. Moments later, Storari performed a superb double save to deny both Palacio and Icardi and seal the win for Juventus.
