An early goal from Nicolo Barella put Inter ahead only six minutes into the game. The Nerazzurri managed to hold on to their lead for the entire first half while Juve struggled to find their feet in the game.

However, the Bianconeri looked much improved after the interval. A quick comeback changed the course of the game in the first seven minutes of the second period.

However, Inter managed to gradually increase the pressure on Juve’s backline without giving away too many counter-attacking chances. Their strategy paid off when Hakan Calhanoglu converted a penalty to score the equalizer in the 80th minute.

Inter continued to dominate the game at the beginning of the extra time. This time, it was Inter’s turn to conduct an impressive comeback.
