Cristiano Ronaldo Net Twice As Juventus Hold Advantage Over Inter Milan In Coppa Italia Semis

Cristiano Ronaldo Net Twice As Juventus Hold Advantage Over Inter Milan In Coppa Italia Semis (Updated: 2 years ago)


Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice to fire Juventus to a 2-1 comeback win over Inter Milan in a hard-fought Coppa Italia semi-final first leg clash at San Siro on Tuesday.

Lautaro Martinez gave the home side an early lead but the Portuguese replied with a penalty before pouncing on a defensive mix-up to put the Turin club in front before halftime.

Inter, without suspended top scorer Romelu Lukaku, pushed for an equaliser but couldn’t find a way past 43-year-old goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon. The Italian produced a superb save to deny Matteo Darmian on the 1,100th senior appearance of his career for club and country.

Nine players were booked in a fiery encounter as Andrea Pirlo’s side earned revenge for their 2-0 Serie A defeat in this fixture, known as the ‘Derby of Italy’, last month.

Juventus, who finished as runners-up last year, host the second leg in Turin on Tuesday, February the 9th and the winner will face Napoli or Atalanta in the final.
