Cristiano Ronaldo scored a brace as Juventus come from behind to beat Serie A rival 2-1 in the semi-final first leg of the Coppa Italia

Argentina forward Lautaro Martinez had put Antonio Conte’s side nine minutes into the encounter after he shot past Bianconeeri goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon on his 1,100th senior appearance.

The Portuguese forward then capitalised on a defensive mistake for his second.

That rounded off the scoring in a bad-tempered encounter, which saw nine players booked as Andrea Pirlo’s side earned revenge for their 2-0 Serie A defeat against Inter in January.

Juventus, 13-time winners of the competition, host Inter Milan in the second leg at Allianz Stadium next week.
