Calhanoglu’s initial penalty was saved by Wojciech Szczesny but the video assistant referee spotted encroachment by defender Matthijs de Ligt and Calhanoglu made no mistake with the second attempt. The penalty was then retaken and Hakan Calhanoglu made no mistake in putting it at the back of the net.

The hosts hit the woodwork twice, Giorgio Chiellini striking the bar before the goal and Denis Zakaria crashing off the post in the second half. The result went against the form books, with Juve having been unbeaten in the league since November and champions Inter only winning one of their previous seven.

Earlier on Sunday, Napoli moved level with Serie A leaders AC Milan on points with a victory at Atalanta.

Marten de Roon pulled one back but Eljif Elmas finished a late counter-attack to seal the win. For Jose Mourinho’s men AS Roma, they extend their unbeaten run to ten and move fifth after a 1-0 win at Sampdoria.
