Juventus snatched a last-gasp draw at champions Inter Milan in Serie A on Sunday after Argentine forward Paulo Dybala scored a penalty following a VAR intervention.

Juventus travelled to Milan in fine form having won their previous six games in all competitions, but soon found themselves behind as Inter striker Edin Dzeko fired home after Hakan Calhanoglu’s shot had hit the post in the 17th minute. 

The visitors piled on the pressure in the second half as they searched for an equaliser, but looked set to be frustrated after failing to create any clear cut chances.

However, Juve were handed a lifeline following a VAR review of a tackle from Inter’s Denzel Dumfries on Alex Sandro, leading to the referee to point to the spot. Dybala grabbed the opportunity to fire in the equaliser in the 89th minute.

Inter were furious with the decision — coach Simone Inzaghi was sent off for his protestations — as they had to settle for a draw that left them third in the standings with 18 points, while Juventus climbed to sixth a further three points adrift.
