Juventus 3 Inter 2: Watch Cuadrado fire home winning penalty after Ronaldo missed spot-kick for 10-man Juve

JUAN CUADRADO'S late penalty revived ten-man Juventus' Champions League hopes in a thrilling but controversial win over new Serie A kings Inter Milan.

VAR made huge calls for THREE goals, while Cristiano Ronaldo hit a rebound opener off his own penalty but was later taken off

Juventus midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur saw red for two yellow cards with 35 minutes left and Inter's Marcelo Brozovic suffered the same fate in stoppage time.

Victory put fallen champs Juve back in the top four, but Lazio are just two points behind and visit Fiorentina on Sunday for their game in hand.

Ronaldo pounced on 24 minutes from close in after his spot-kick was parried.

Romelu Lukaku levelled 11 minutes later from another spot-kick awarded following a video review.

But Cuadadro smashed home a deflected shot to restore Juve's lead in first-half stoppage time.

Inter surged back, though, once Bentancur was sent off 10 minutes after the break.

Juventus manager Andrea Pirlo replaced Ronaldo with Alvaro Morata a quarter of an hour later.

But Giorgio Chiellini's 83rd minute own goal seemed to have earned Inter at least a point.

Juve and Italy skipper Chiellini claimed he was being tugged by Lukaku.

But after video replays, the equaliser stood and it was Chiellini who was booked for holding the Belgium striker.

Five minutes later, though, former Manchester United target Ivan Perisic was ruled to have impeded Cuadrado inside the box.


And Colombia wideman Cuadrado knocked home a penalty clincher.

Brozonic then summed up a rare afternoon to forget for Inter in their otherwise superb Serie A campaign. 

The Croatia anchorman was dismissed for his second booking, following a late tackle on Cuadrado.
