Juventus┬áfinished last in the International Champions Cup after losing to Inter on penalties, 1-1 on 90 minutes.
This was a battle in Miami to avoid finishing last in the International Champions Cup, as both teams had suffered back-to-back defeats. TheNerazzurri┬áfell 2-0 to Chelsea and 4-0 to Valencia, while the┬áBianconeri┬álost on penalties to┬áEverton┬áand 3-1 with LA Galaxy. Hugo┬áCampagnaro┬áreturned from suspension, but Walter Samuel, Mateo┬áKovacic, Diego┬áMilito┬áand JavierZanetti┬áwere sidelined.
Both teams made numerous changes to field an almost full-strength starting XI.┬áMirko┬áVucinic┬ánodded an Andrea┬áPirlo┬áfree kick over from eight yards, whileGigi┬áBuffon┬áperformed a stunning save on Rodrigo┬áPalacio, who had wandered marginally offside anyway.
Pirlo┬ácurled a free kick just wide, but Inter broke the deadlock when┬áBuffononly parried a fierce┬áFredy┬áGuarin┬áeffort into the path of Ricky Alvarez. It was the first goal the┬áNerazzurri┬áhad scored in this tournament.
Alvarez created a fantastic chance for his brace when sprinting down the right and cutting back past Leonardo┬áBonucci, but fired wide of the near post.
The referee pointed to the spot before half-time, as Juan Jesus rather clumsily brought down┬áVucinic. Arturo Vidal stepped up and converted powerfully despite┬áSamir┬áHandanovic┬águessing the right angle.
The Chilean volleyed over from a corner and┬áTevez┬áset up a chance that Claudio┬áMarchisio┬áturned on to the side-netting.
Alvarez failed to get on the end of a┬áPalacio┬ácounter-attack and Marco┬áStorarismothered a┬áYuto┬áNagatomo┬ásnapshot.
Pirlo┬áthought heÔÇÖd won it for┬áJuve┬áon 77 minutes when his free kick curled over the wall, but it thumped the base of the upright with Juan Pablo┬áCarrizorooted to the spot.
The Turin giants threatened again with a corner, as┬áCarrizo┬ádived out to capture the ball before anyone could get the final touch from six yards.
As neither side could snatch a winner, the tie had to be decided on penalties. Sebastian┬áGiovinco┬áwent up first and saw his spot-kick saved by┬áCarrizo. However,┬áGuarin┬áhad the exact same result against┬áStorari.
The penalties continued, including a cheeky Mauro┬áIcardi┬áchip, until it went to sudden death and beyond. Eventually at the┬á10th┬áround of spot-kicks Carrizo saved from Mauricio Isla and then the goalkeeper went to take the winner himself, beating colleague Storari.
