Allegri: Napoli Will Win Remaining Games

Gianluigi Buffon apologises to Juve fans for what the players did after Napoli loss

Gianluigi Buffon apologises to Juve fans for what the players did after Napoli loss

The supporters who had gathered chanted support for their team, encouraging them to fight to the end in order to win their seventh-consecutive league title.

As so often in Serie A, there were recriminations, centring on referee Daniele Orsato's decision to send off Inter midfielder Matias Vecino in the 15th minute at San Siro but to allow a reckless body-check by Juve midfielder Miralem Pjanic to go unpunished.

Saturday's defeat damages Inter's hopes of Champions League football next season as they stay fifth behind Roma and Lazio with just three games to play. "This match meant a huge amount to us and the team deserved a different result".

Inter boss Luciano Spalletti said on Italian television station Mediaset Premium: "Clearly, we need to shake off the bitterness of this defeat, because the team didn't deserve it".

Inter Milan were playing at home to Juventus and after the visitors scored on 13 minutes, Inter then had a man sent off five minutes later. Minutes later Vecino was shown red for a foul on Mario Mandzukic.

Inter turned the heat on Juventus in the second half with Mauro Icardi heading in a free-kick from Joao Cancelo in the 51st minute for the equaliser before veteran defender Barzagli turned a left cross from Ivan Perisic into his net as Inter took the lead in the 64th minute.

"It looked as if it was over, like against Napoli it looked as if it was going to end in a draw and we lost", said Higuain in reference to last week's 1-0 loss to second-placed Napoli.

"Even a side with great mental strength will have moments where they lose confidence".

Earlier, Roma hardly noticed having a man dismissed as they beat visiting Chievo 4-1 with a brace from Edin Dzeko helping them strengthen their hold on third place.

Roma next faces Liverpool in the Stadio Olimpico Wednesday where it has to overturn a 5-2 first-leg deficit to advance to the final.

Inglese headed in a late consolation goal for Chievo, but they remain two points above the drop zone.

Goalkeeper Alisson Becker saved Inglese's ensuing spot-kick but was beaten by the striker's late header after Stephan El Shaarawy and Dzeko had secured victory for the hosts.
