SERIE A | Juventus 2-0 Inter : Bianconeri wins derby d’italia

Last Updated on 07/11/2022 by

On Sunday night, Adrien Rabiot and Nicolo Fagioli led Juventus to a decisive 2-0 victory over Inter at home.

A tentative beginning to such a historic match began to open up after about 20 minutes, with Inter’s Lautaro Martinez and Juve’s unlikely Gleison Bremer at the back post both going close. Juventus was the team that grew and created more opportunities, but they were unable to advance before halftime.

After the break, Juventus was content to wait and respond, which ultimately helped them pull ahead and keep posing a threat. An attempt at a goal late in the game was useless because Inter didn’t use the ball effectively enough for the majority of the second half.

Both teams appeared to have been consumed by the Derby d’Italia from the first whistle on, with a clear lack of quality in front of goal and in passing particularly noticeable. However, the game picked up and became end-to-end for 45 minutes, with Inter missing the clearest scoring opportunities.

After surviving a flurry from Juventus that saw them nearly take the lead through Bremer after 20 minutes, Inter finished the half strong. After just five minutes, Lautaro Martinez had missed with a shot. After 42 minutes, Nicolo Barella may have been trying to score himself after receiving a pass from Henrikh Mkhitaryan, but his effort ended up in the path of an unmarked Denzel Dumfries, who missed a clear-cut opportunity to score to keep the half scoreless.

Even though Inter tried to increase the pressure after the break, it only took the hosts seven minutes to take the lead. Rabiot opened up his foot and sunk a low cross from the left flank by Filip Kostic for a 1-0 score.

Inter was suddenly losing the game, and after an hour, Danilo miraculously scored from Kostic’s corner to put Inter down two. However, they were spared the embarrassment because VAR disallowed the goal for handball.

In the dying seconds, Kostic’s shot was deflected spectacularly onto the post by Andre Onana. A stop like that ought to have inspired Simone Inzaghi’s team to score the crucial equaliser, but when Fagioli scored on his debut in Serie A, they were already down 2-0 and ready to concede.

Whatever switch Max Allegri flipped at halftime clearly worked for Juventus because it’s all over! The Old Lady came out of the half a different team, contrasting their slow first half with a second in which they broke forward with lightning speed, setting up Rabiot to score the opening goal.

A few minutes later, they believed they had a second, but a thorough VAR review disallowed Danilo for hand-ball. However, the Bianconeri persisted in keeping Inter away from Szczesny’s goal at all costs and sealed the victory with a powerful finish late on. Juventus has now won four straight games, ending Inter’s streak, and the Bianconeri have surpassed their inferior rivals to move up to fifth place in the standings.
