Although he spent most of the second half with 10 men, the result saw Andrea Pirlo’s side take fourth place with one game to go, although Napoli bring the Turin club back to fifth place if he beats Fiorentina on Sunday.

Both teams received penalties in the first half in a game dominated by VAR decisions. Ronaldo’s rebound put Juve in the lead and Romelu Lukaku scored his penalty for Inter shortly after.

Juve regained the lead at half-time thanks to a deflected strike from Cuadrado, but the hosts were reduced to 10 men early in the second half when Rodrigo Bentancur picked up a second yellow.

Inter equalized thanks to an own goal from Giorgio Chiellini and Cuadrado responded with the winning penalty in the 88th minute, but there was still time for Marcelo Brozovic to be sent off for the visitors for a second booking.

Ronaldo was replaced by Alvaro Morata in the 70th minute, the Portuguese star’s first replacement since November 10, 2019 against AC Milan.
