Inter defeats Juventus: It was Inter vs Juventus in Serie A. The match Inter vs Juventus ended in a 2-0 win for Inter Milan.
The first goal was scored by Arturo Vidal in the 12th minute who gave Antonio Conte’s men a 1-0 lead.

Inter has beaten Juventus for the first time since 2016. They now sit in the 2nd spot in Serie A as they have 40 points from 18 matches. Juventus has 33 points from 17 matches and is in the 5th spot.
Through their relentless run of eight straight Serie A victories surprisingly came to an end at the hands of mid-table Sampdoria at the start of the year, as they prepare for one of the grandest dates in the Calcio calendar, Inter remains on a streak of five consecutive home league wins.
After only one point from their last two games, the Nerazzurri not only need a win to claim supremacy over old foes Juventus – distancing the fast-closing Bianconeri in the process – they must also keep pace with league-leading city rivals Milan.
Juventus are the only team against which Conte has always lost as a manager in Serie A – with three defeats from three to date.
A potentially season-defining start to 2021 has seen Juventus scheduled to meet both Milan clubs – and Napoli in the Supercoppa Italiana – within the space of a fortnight, as Pirlo’s debut campaign in the dugout appears to be belatedly taking shape.
