Serie A Inter end Juventus run of 20 games without defeat in derby win

Juventus lost for the first time in 20 games in both league and cup with a 1-0 defeat at Inter on Sunday.

The game’s only goal arrived after 37 minutes when Federico Gatti touched the ball into his own net. The defender came close to grabbing an equaliser in the second half, but his powerful shot went wide.

Wojciech Szczesny produced two world-class saves to keep Juventus in the game but the Bianconeri failed to find an equalising goal. The tactical chess match that is the Derby d’Italia saw neither goalkeeper make a save in the first half but that did not detract from the absorbing spectacle that unfolded under the floodlights at San Siro.

An immense recovery tackle by Bremer denied Marcus Thuram a tap-in on 24 minutes, a scare that sparked a reply from Juventus.Weston McKennie set off on a slaloming run into Inter territory with Kenan Yildiz and Dusan Vlahovic in support.

The midfielder opted for the latter, who belied his 2024 form, unable to take the ball in his stride and the chance went begging.
