Inter Milan missed the chance to climb to the top the of Serie A table after playing out a goalless draw with champions Juventus at the San Siro on Sunday.
Both sides created several chances in a very intense clash but a goal was missing in spite of the thrills.
Roberto Mancini’s side failed to make the most of their superiority early on, but Juventus arguably missed the better chances on a night when a defeat may have ended the Bianconeri’s title hopes.
Inter dominated for most of the first half, but they could have fallen behind early on when Alvaro Morata turned to pick out Juan Cuadrado, whose strike was beaten away by Samir Handanovic.
After threating in the opening minutes, Juventus were then forced onto the back foot as Inter started to threaten with the likes of Ivan Perisic and Stevan Jovetic. The visitors were rescued by their defence on numerous occasions, with Giorgio Chiellini making a vital block after Juan Jesus had managed to pick out Mauro Icardi’s run into the box.
Inter were inches away from breaking the deadlock moments later as the hosts took a short corner to Marcelo Brozovic, who used the space on offer to unleash a curling effort which Gianluigi Buffon somehow tipped against the crossbar.
In a mirror image to the first half, Juventus were on top after the break as Morata once again spotted Cuadrado in space, but the Colombian was denied as Handanovic blocked his effort from a tight angle.
