Juve scored twice in last five minutes to sink ten-man Inter

Four points clear and with three games each to play, Juve just need to beat Bologna and Verona at home, both in the lower half of the table, to win the title, no matter what Napoli do.

Gonzalo Higuain headed a dramatic late victor as Juventus pulled off a sensational turnaround to beat 10-man rivals Inter 3-2 in the Derby d'Italia, moving the Serie A leaders four points clear of Scudetto rivals Napoli.

But a Milan Skriniar own goal and Gonzalo Higuain strike saw Juve to a come-from-behind win.

Inter battled bravely, having been forced to play most of the game with 10 men after Matias Vecino was sent off after a challenge on Mario Mandzukic.

"It was a great evening of football between two teams who faced each other openly", said Allegri.

"That was such an obvious yellow card that the referee could have given it blind-folded", said former Juventus, Napoli, Milan and West Ham forward Paolo Di Canio, analysing the game for Sky Sport Italia.

'We didn't stop to greet you against Napoli because we were too angry, we went to talk with our opponents because it is our habit to do so, win or lose.

Douglas Costa fired in the opener for Juventus after 13 minutes following a cross from Juan Cuadrado. Higuain headed past goalkeeper Samir Handanovic the free-kick from Dybala as the visitors secured a 3-2 win.

Instead, Buffon attracted praise for staying on the pitch to congratulate every Napoli player in the aftermath of a victory that brought them to within one point of the reigning Italian champions and current top-flight leaders.

Earlier, 10-man Roma warmed-up for next week's must-win Champions League clash with Liverpool by easing to a 4-1 win over struggling Chievo to consolidate third place.

The Giallorossi will hope to repeat their heroics against Barcelona in the last round by overturning a 5-2 semi-final first-leg deficit against Jurgen Klopp's men on Wednesday and found some form on home soil.

Patrik Schick and Dzeko scored in a first half dominated by Roma, who had Juan Jesus dismissed for a last-man foul on Roberto Inglese on 56 minutes. "We could have scored more but we got the win, and that's the main thing".
