Fino alla fine. It’s the never-say-die mantra of the Bianconeri and we saw it again on display Saturday night at a sold out San Siro as Juventus found two goals in the last five minutes of the match to seal a stunning 2-3 comeback win in the Derby d’Italia over Inter.
The Bianconeri led at the break from a Douglas Costa goal, before the home side re-took the lead in the second half through Mauro Icardi and an own-goal from Andrea Barzagli. The Old Lady refused to be beaten and tied the game up in the 87th minute through Juan Cuadrado’s deflected effort before Gonzalo Higuain scored the all-important match winner two minutes later to complete a sensational turnaround in Milan!
It was a packed cauldron awaiting the Bianconeri in Milan, but Juve didn’t show any signs of it affecting them, as they started the match on the front foot threatening the Inter goal with a couple of early chances. La Vecchia Signora wouldn’t have to wait long for their opener as in the 13th minute, Juan Cuadrado swung in a great cross from the right-hand side with Blaise Matuidi flicking it into the path of Douglas Costa. The Brazilian winger volleyed home first time to give Juve a stunning lead.
