    • Internazionale
    • 90' That's it! Juventus have beaten Inter Milan 1-0 through Matri's solitary headed goal in the first half. What does that mean for Inter's title hopes now?
    • 90' Horrible tackle by Motta as Inter's frustration shows. Motta is now suspended for the Fiorentina match.
    • 89' The ball drops to Eto'o in the box again but he swings his left foot at it but completely misses the ball! What has happened to the 27 goal man in these last few minutes?
    • 88' What a miss by Eto'o! Inter break with pace after Pepe gave the ball away, and the ball is fizzed in by Maicon from the right. The ball evades everyone except Eto'o at the far post who sidefoots his shot against the bar from 3 yards! Bad, bad miss.
    • 87' Maicon has been booked for failing to retreat at a free kick.
    • 86' Maicon drives forward and hits an audacious effort from distance high and very wide.
    • 84' Iaquinta, Luca Toni's replacement, has done very little to lead the line since coming on. The home sideare struggling to hold on to the ball when they get it.
    • 82' Juve being forced back all the time by Inter though.
    • 81' Good combination play by Inter again as Sneijder lofts a pass into the path of Eto'o but yet again Buffon comes out and stands tall.
    • 79' Inter are cranking up the pressure here but Maicon overhits his cross to Eto'o and Juve breathe again.
    • 78' Sissoko is booked for a cynical tackle on Sneijder
    • 76' Pepe makes space for the cross on the left but hoplessly overhits it. Juve are beginning to sit deeper and deeper as Inter gain momentum.
    • 74' Terrible back pass leaves Buffon exposed as Eto'o gets on the end of it, but Buffon stands his ground pulling off an excellent save.
    • 73' Inter looking for fresh impetus with the introduction of Nagatomo. They continue to dominate as Juve look for a response on the counter attack.
    • 72' Inter sub: Nagatomo on, Cambiasso off

    • 45' That's half time. Inter struggling to create anything clear cut despite dominating possession. Juve are very comfortable and have been the livlier of the two teams in attack.
    • 45' Krasic bursts into space on the right and, just as he is about to cross, Zanetti makes an absolutely brilliant tackle and Inter can launch an attack of their own...
    • 44' Maicon crosses deep from the right and Cambiasso almost gets his head on it but Juve's Barzagli heads it away from danger.
    • 43' The best of the chances definitely falling to the home side so far.
    • 41' Moans and groans greet Chiellini's spooned cross from the left, because Luca Toni was waiting unmarked in the box.
    • 39' Juve almost catch Inter cold again and find themselves 3-on-3 but Matri's ball into the box goes straight into the arms of Julio Cesar - much to the annoyance of Krasic!
    • 37' And that man was Bonucci this time.
    • 36' Kharja drills a low cross into the box from the right, after being picked out by Eto'o's incisive throughball, but again Juve have a man back to clear.
    • 34' Pazzini is penalised for handball in the Juve box. Shame, that was a nice move by Inter, who are seeking an immediate reply here.
    • 33' Perhaps that goal will force Inter to play, as they have offered very little in attacking quality so far.
    • 31' First blood to Juve in the Derby d'Italia! Krasic, on the right wing, rolls the ball back to Sorensen who crosses for the unmarked Alessandro Matri to guide his header inside the near post.
    • 30' GOAL! Juventus 1-0 Inter Milan
    • 28' Motta picks out Maicon with a beautifully disguised chipped throughball that had the Juve defence fooled - but Maicon is flagged offside. That was marginal.
    • 26' Juve not having to do much defending at the moment - Inter seem to be lacking attacking options.
    • 25' Eto'o spreads the play to Maicon on the right and the Brazilian puts in an early cross but Buffon comes out to smother.
    • 23' Juve finding space on that left wing with alarming frequency from an Inter point of view. This time Chiellini motors down the wing, fires a cross into Luca, but the big Italian forward is dispossessed on the edge of the box.
    • 21' Eto'o tries to drill a low ball into the box from the right, but Chiellini stands his ground well.
    • 19' Inter have been struggling to get into this as Krasic is upended during Juve's counter. But the ref tells him to get up, much to the dissatisfaction of the home fans.
    • 17' Teasing cross from the right catches Inter defender Ranocchia flat footed and Toni almost capitalises as Inter struggle to clear.
    • 15' Aquilani attempts an ambitious chip from the corner of the penalty box, with the shot seeming to catch Julio Cesar out. It was slightly overhit but a very decent effort by the man on-loan from Liverpool.
    • 13' Route one by Melo, who is seeking out Toni, who almost bundles the ball through the last line of Inter defence, but the Nerazzurri clear their lines.
    • 11' But not in attack! Juve break with pace and precision and Luca Toni picks up a throughball, back heels it into the path of Chiellini - who had made a surging run into the box - and wins a corner.
    • 10' Juventus looking vulnerable at the back so far.
    • 9' Another long ball for Pazzini almost finds its target but he cannot control the ball and the danger is gone.
    • 7' Maicon's cross is only half cleared by Juve and Eto'o was ready to fire a shot in from the edge of the box but it wouldn't quite fall for the Cameroonian.
    • 6' After that frantic start, things have settled here and Inter are enjoying the best of the possession. Zanetti just fed Sneijder on the left who was outnumbered before he had a chance to cross.
    • 4' At the other end, Juve have won a corner. Very open start here.
    • 3' Explosive start in a very misty Turin.
    • 2' Big early chance for Inter as Sneijder picks out Pazzini who wasmaking a run into the box but the ball wouldn't sit down for him as he attempted to volley it past Buffon.
    • 1' We are underway at a sell-out Stadio Olympico.
    • 19.43 Inter are without Argentina striker Diego Milito, who is sidelined for a month with a thigh injury, as well as suspended defender Cristian Chivu.
    • 19.42 Juventus, despite trailing leaders AC Milan by 11 points, still harbour hopes of winning the Scudetto.
    • 19.40 Juventus make one change from the last change, whith Luca Toni coming in.
    • 19.40 Hello everyone. Welcome to live coverage of Juventus vs Inter Milan.
