The win kept Juventus in the hunt for their seventh consecutive Serie A title, having taken a four-point lead at the top with three matches left for them to play.

Inter manager Luciano Spalletti has expressed his frustration with what he considered "unbalanced" refereeing in his side's 3-2 defeat to Juventus at the San Siro in Serie A on Saturday.

That result shrunk Juve's lead to just one point with four games remaining, and two tough trips to Roma and Inter still to come.

"Football is a sport of passion".

"Clearly, we need to shake off the bitterness of this defeat, because the team didn't deserve it".

"If we win our remaining games, we will achieve a points record which in itself will be very satisfying", he said.

Minutes later, the sending off of midfielder Matías Vecino didn't help the hosts as the Uruguyan went in for a strong challenge that caught forward Mario Mandzukic on the ankle.

Juventus thought they had scored a second just before half-time but the video assistant referee (VAR) showed Blaise Matuidi was offside when he found the net.

Juve looked set for back-to-back league defeats for the first time since August 2015 when 10-man Inter overturned Douglas Costa's opener through a Mauro Icardi effort and Andrea Barzagli's own goal.

Juve coach Massimiliano Allegri was sent off for entering the pitch after Higuain's goal.

Inter will definitely need to bounce back quickly if they are to keep alive their hopes of a top-four finish, as they are now one point behind fourth-placed Lazio, who also have a game in hand.

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.

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.

Inter are fifth, a point behind Lazio, who play late Sunday at Torino, in the race for the final Champions League spot.

Chievo are two points clear of the three-team drop zone. "We could have scored more but we got the win, and that's the main thing".
