Juve score twice in last five minutes to sink 10-man Inter

Gonzalo Higuain headed a dramatic late victor as Juventus pulled off a sensational turnaround to beat 10-man rivals Inter 3-2 in the Derby d'Italia, moving the Serie A leaders four points clear of Scudetto rivals Napoli.

Maurizio Sarri's second-placed Napoli could cut the gap on Juventus to just one point when they visit Fiorentina this morning (Singapore time).

Still smarting from last week's home defeat by Napoli which threw open the title race, Juventus got off to a flying start when Douglas Costa collected Cuadrado's crossfield pass and scored from a narrow angle in the 13th minute.

More was still to come, with Juan Cuadrado's cross deflecting in off Milan Skiriniar in the 87th minute prior to remarkable scenes in the closing stages.

Mauro Icardi headed in the equaliser for Inter seven minutes after the break for his 27th goal this season, and the hosts took the lead when the ball bounced in off Juventus defender Andrea Barzagli.

Many draft experts project Guice as a first-round selection and the second running back picked in the draft. Let's take a look at three backs they could select throughout these three draft days.

That potentially crucial loss at home to their closest foes in the Serie A title race left Juve just a point ahead of Napoli, Kalidou Koulibaly having headed in a dramatic 90th-minute victor.

"It was a wonderful evening of football between two teams who needed to win and went all out, " Allegri told Sky Italia.

"We didn't stop close to the "Curva" [a section of the stadium] because we were very disappointed and we didn't realize".

Earlier 10-man Roma warmed-up for next week's must-win Champions League clash with Liverpool by easing to a 4-1 win over struggling Chievo to consolidate third place.

Patrik Schick turned in Radja Nainggolan's pass and Dzeko volleyed in from Aleksandar Kolarov's cross as Roma took a 2-0 halftime lead against the Flying Donkeys. "In the end, it's the great players who decide matches". Jesus was sent off but Inglese saw his spot kick saved by Alisson.
