Perisic heads Inter to first league win over Juve since 2012
Published in Ahram Online on 18 - 09 - 2016

Inter Milan substitute Ivan Perisic secured a 2-1 win over champions Juventus as the hosts recorded their first Serie A victory over their arch rivals in eight games after fighting back from a goal down at the San Siro on Sunday.

Stephan Lichsteiner had knocked in Alex Sandro's low cross to gived Juve the lead in the 66th minute in a typically tense encounter but Inter captain Mauro Icardi levelled two minutes later by heading home from a corner.

Icardi then provided a stylish cross with the outside of his boot for Perisic to score in the 78th, nine minutes after the Croatia international had come off the bench.

Inter had midfielder Ever Banega sent off in the 90th minute for a second yellow card but they clung on to inflict a first league defeat on Juve since May 8 and end their 100 percent start to the season.

It was the first time Inter had beaten Juventus in Serie A since 2012 and the first time at home in the league since 2010.

Juve stay second on nine points, one behind leaders Napoli who beat Bologna 3-1 on Saturday, while Inter move up to sixth on seven points.

Fifth-placed AS Roma visit Fiorentina later on Sunday.

Earlier, Genoa and Udinese squandered the chance to provisionally move level on points with Juventus after defeats by Sassuolo and Chievo Verona respectively.

Sassuolo followed up Thursday's impressive 3-0 Europa League win over Athletic Bilbao with a 2-0 home victory over visiting Genoa, who were reduced to 10 men in the final minutes.

Matteo Politano put Sassuolo ahead from the penalty spot in the 58th minute and Gregoire Defrel doubled their advantage in the 66th with a diving header.

Udinese threw away the lead as they lost 2-1 at home to Chievo after conceding a goal in the fifth minute of added time.

Lucas Castro had grabbed a deserved equaliser for Chievo in the 82nd minute, after Duvan Zapata's diving header had put Udinese on top in the first half, and the Argentine laid on the pass for Fabrizio Cacciatore to tap in the last-gasp winner.
