That's all for today. Thank you for following our live coverage. Until next time, goodbye!
Juventus play their final match of this competition against Atletico Madrid in Sweden on August 10th. Meanwhile, Inter are back in action this Saturday when they face French champions Paris Saint-Germain in a friendly in Taipa.
The evergreen Gianluigi Buffon was the hero for Juventus, who beat Inter 4-3 on penalties to record their first win of this year's International Champions Cup. There was nothing to separate the two Italian sides over 90 minutes as Matthijs de Ligt's first-half own goal was cancelled out by a deflected Cristiano Ronaldo free-kick.
BUFFON AGAIN! His third save of the shoot-out denies Valero this time. Demiral can win it for Juventus...
AND HE DOES! The Turkish international calmly slots his penalty away and Juventus win.
HE CAN'T! The crossbar comes to Inter's rescue to deny the winger. We're going into sudden death...
Buffon gets down to Barella's penalty but is unable to keep it out. It's 3-3 but Bernardeschi could win it for Juve...
OVER THE BAR! Rabiot wildly blazes his spot-kick way over the bar.
Mario keeps Inter alive as he dispatches his kick right into the corner.
Juventus on the brink of victory as Can calmly slots into the corner.
BUFFON IS AT IT AGAIN! He guesses the right way to push Longo's kick onto the post.
Ronaldo is next up for Juventus and drills low into the bottom corner to move them 2-1 ahead.
Inter are on the board as Puscas fires into the top corner beyond the reach of Buffon.
First up for Juventus is Cancelo, who thumps home his effort to put the Bianconeri 1-0 to the good.
Ranocchia steps up first for Inter and Buffon guesses correctly to push his effort to safety. Still 0-0, but advantage Juventus.
For what it's worth, both sides are guaranteed at least a point following that stalemate. However, an extra one will go to the side that prevail in this shoot-out, which is coming up shortly.
There was nothing to separate the sides after 90 minutes as Cristiano Ronaldo cancelled out Matthijs de Ligt's first-half own goal. Therefore, we will have a penalty shoot-out to decide the outcome.
90' + 2' Longo climbs well to meet a dangerous ball into the Juventus area, but is unable to direct his header towards goal.
90' The fourth official raises his board to indicate that there will be four minutes of stoppage time. If there is no winning goal between now and then, we will have a penalty shoot-out.
L. Agoume
A. Candreva
88' New signing Lucien Agoume is also introduced by Conte. Candreva makes way.
85' Bernardeschi drives forward down the right wing before cutting inside onto his favoured left foot. He lets fly but is unable to direct his shot towards the target.
S. Muratore
B. Matuidi
78' Meanwhile, Matuidi makes way for Juventus to be replaced by Simone Muratore.
G. Puşcaş
78' Following another solid shift up front, Esposito makes way for George Puscas.
S. Longo
I. Perišić
78' Another change for Inter with Samuele Longo replacing Perisic.
N. Barella
S. Sensi
78' Sensi is also given a breather with Nicolo Barella taking his place.
João Mário
R. Gagliardini
78' Portugal international Joao Mario is also introduced in place of Gagliardini.
Borja Valero
M. Brozović
78' Brozovic is given a breather with Borja Valero coming on in his place.
A. Bastoni
M. Škriniar
78' Another Inter swap sees Skriniar make way for Alessandro Bastoni.
A. Ranocchia
S. de Vrij
78' Inter ring the changes. One of them sees Andrea Ranocchia replace De Vrij.
77' It looks like Inter are going to make several changes shortly. They have numerous players stripped off on the sidelines and ready to come on.
75' FANTASTIC RECOVERY! Juventus hit Inter on the counter and Ronaldo rounds Padelli. However, the Nerazzurri keeper produces a perfectly timed sliding challenge to dispossess him before gratefully clutching the loose ball.
74' A mixture of fatigue and the hot weather appears to have taken its toll on Inter, who break out into something of a training exercise as they slow the tempo right down and simply play keep-ball.
72' Ronaldo chases a high long ball over the top of the Inter defence, but Padelli is alert to the danger and quickly out of goal to gather.
70' Juventus have their tails up and immediately go in search of a second goal. Can leads the charge before feeding Ronaldo, who is crowded out by the Inter defence. Mandzukic would have been the better option for the German there.
D. Rugani
L. Bonucci
68' A wise substitution by Juventus and Sarri, who replaces Bonucci with Daniele Rugani.
Cristiano Ronaldo
68' HE'S DONE IT!!! 1-1! You were never going to keep him quiet forever! Ronaldo's free-kick takes a deflection that completely bamboozles Padelli.
67' The Bianconeri are awarded a free-kick right on the edge of the area after Ronaldo is felled by D'Ambrosio. This is very much within the territory of the Portugal skipper...
E. Can
M. Pjanić
65' Juventus make another change as Emre Can replaces Pjanic.
64' Juventus hold a fractional edge in terms of possession - with 52 per cent to Inter's 48 - but Inter continue to hold firm.
62' That is four shots that Ronaldo has now had on goal but without any joy. Inter will be satisfied to have kept him at bay thus far, but will certainly not be resting on their laurels yet.
60' Ronaldo stands over the dead ball but can only send his free-kick straight into the wall, before Matuidi's follow-up effort is also blocked.
59' Unpleasant scenes as, after the awarding of a Juventus free-kick, Inter's players angrily confront the referee. However, in all fairness, the official stands his ground and order is restored.
57' Padelli is called into action again as Rabiot bursts forward before letting fly with a powerful left-footed shot that stings the palms of the Inter keeper.
55' GOOD SAVE! Ronaldo fashions space to shoot from a tight angle; forcing smart reflexes from Padelli, who gets strong hands on the ball.
L. Bonucci
Yellow Card
53' Bonucci's protests lead to him saying one word too many for the liking of the referee, who subsequently books the Juventus skipper.
52' The competitive nature of this fixture is evident once again as Demiral and Candreva angrily square up while awaiting a Juventus corner. The referee gives both players a stern telling.
50' Space opens for De Sciglio to burst into and, following an exchange with Ronaldo, Bernardeschi's dangerous cross is put behind for a corner.
48' You have to go back to September 2016 for the last time Inter tasted victory against Juventus. As things stand, their wait will be over today.
M. Demiral
M. de Ligt
46' De Ligt has also made way for the Bianconeri, with Merih Demiral coming on in his place.
M. Mandžukić
G. Higuaín
46' Juventus also make a change up front with Mario Mandzukic replacing Gonzalo Higuain.
G. Buffon
W. Szczęsny
46' Juventus follow suit with a switch between the sticks as Szczesny makes way for Gianluigi Buffon.
D. Padelli
S. Handanovič
46' There has been a change in goal for Inter at half-time, with Daniele Padelli replacing Handanovic.
46' The referee blows his whistle and Inter get the ball rolling once more.
Conte shall demand more of the same from his Inter side in this second half. As for Juventus, Maurizio Sarri will be looking for his attacking players to get involved more often. There is no doubt they have quality in abundance to cause their opponents problems this way.
Matthias de Ligt's own goal is the difference in this all-Italian clash. On his first start for Juventus, the Dutchman put through his own net in the 10th minute following a dangerous Inter corner. The Nerazzurri have contained the reigning Serie A champions so far and Antonio Conte will be pleased with his side's efforts.
45' + 2' GREAT EFFORT! Bernardeschi bursts into life on the edge of the area and plays a neat one-two with Higuain, before firing narrowly over the crossbar with a dipping volley.
45' We are going to have three minutes of stoppage time at the end of this first half.
43' With 51 touches so far, Candreva has had more time on the ball than any other player so far in this game. The Italian international has looked dangerous and given Szczesny a couple of nervy moments.
D. D'Ambrosio
Yellow Card
41' The first yellow card of the game is shown to D'Ambrosio following a rash challenge in the centre of the field.
40' GOOD SAVE! Candreva tries his luck from outside the area and Szczesny has to get down well to push the effort to safety.
38' Sensi joined Inter on loan from Sassuolo earlier this month. The 23-year-old already looks like a shrewd purchase by the way he drives his side forward and isn't afraid to try a shot every now and again.
36' Inter are carrying a good threat on the counter. The latest example of this sees Sensi drive forward and feed the ball out wide before latching onto the return pass, but Juventus are able to snuff him out on this occasion.
34' The Portugal captain has only had a couple of half-chances so far today. Inter will be happy with that so far, but are fully aware they cannot afford to take their eyes off him for a single second.
32' Ronaldo climbs well to meet another long ball into the Inter box, but cannot quite get the desired contact to direct it towards goal.
30' The players are given the opportunity to get some water on board, which will be very welcome in the extremely warm weather.
28' ALMOST! Inter go forward again with Candreva leading the charge down the right. He cuts inside before delivering a dangerous left-footed cross that is whiskers away from nestling in the far corner. Szczesny has to watch it all the way behind for a goal kick.
26' At the other end, following a good break, Perisic's attempted long-range effort is deflected behind for an Inter corner.
24' Right on cue, Bernardeschi attempts to make something happen as he seeks out Higuain with a long diagonal ball that just evades the striker before being gathered by Handanovic.
22' As we hit the midway point in the first half, the game has lost some of it's natural flow. Both sides are looking a little sloppy in possession and need to get their feet back on the ball.
20' OH DEAR! The fact that we are in pre-season is demonstrated by Matuidi, who sends a relatively simple square pass well wide of its intended target and aimlessly out for a throw-in to Inter in a decent position.
18' It is also worth noting that, today, Conte is facing his former club - with whom he made over 400 appearances as a player, before guiding them to three consecutive Serie A titles as a manager between 2011 and 2014.
16' This may be a friendly but the competitive nature of the fixture is evident with a total of seven fouls already committed between the sides.
14' Juventus are awarded a free-kick in a good area after Ronaldo is brought down by Gagliardini. Bernardeschi's delivery is met at the far post by Higuain, but his attempted cushioned volley across the face of goal evades everyone and Inter can relax.
12' Inter go in search of a second goal almost straightaway as Sensi bursts forward before trying his luck with an effort that is high and wide of the target.
M. de Ligt
Own Goal
10' INTER LEAD!!! It is a nightmare start for De Ligt. Enjoying a decent spell of superiority in possession, Inter force a corner which the Dutchman inadvertently diverts beyond the helpless Szczesny.
8' It may only be pre-season but this is very much opportunity knocks for Esposito. With Mauro Icardi reportedly set to leave Inter, the number nine shirt is going to be up for grabs at the San Siro during the 2019-20 campaign.
6' At the other end, Esposito forces the first corner of the match. Juventus deal with the initial delivery before the 17-year-old fires a volley wide of the target.
4' Ronaldo just never seems to age. He may be 34 years old but remains sharper than ever as demonstrated with that early opportunity.
2' First sight of goal for Ronaldo who, as we have seen so often over the years, cuts inside from the left before letting fly with a long-range effort. However, his strike is straight down the throat of Handanovic.
1' Referee Lei Zhang blows his whistle and the game is underway!
The teams are making their way out onto the field. Kick-off is just moments away.
With Arsenal topping the table on seven points, both sides' hopes of winning the 2019 International Champions Cup are over. Nevertheless, this all-Italian showdown provides each team with a chance to lay down a marker ahead of the new Serie A season.
As for Inter, they make just a single change to the side that started their defeat by Manchester United on Saturday. The experienced Ivan Perisic replaces Samuele Longo and will offer support to 17-year-old striker Sebastiano Esposito, who is given another opportunity to shine by former Juventus boss Antonio Conte.
The big story is that Juventus’ new signing Matthijs de Ligt makes his first start for the Bianconeri since arriving from Ajax, while there is also a maiden appearance from the start for fellow new arrival Adrien Rabiot. In the other two changes from Sunday’s defeat by Tottenham, Wojciech Szczesny replaces Gianluigi Buffon in goal and Gonzalo Higuain is given the nod up front ahead of Mario Mandzukic.
SUBS: Daniele Padelli, Edoardo Vergani, Samuele Longo, Alessandro Bastoni, Borja Valero, Andrea Ranocchia, Michael Ntube, Lucien Agoume, Lorenzo Pirola, Nicolo Barella, Joao Mario, Facundo Colidio, Tommaso Berni, George Puscas.
INTER (3-5-2): Samir Handanovic; Danilo D’Ambrosio, Stefan de Vrij, Milan Skriniar; Antonio Candreva, Roberto Gagliardini, Marcelo Brozovic, Stefano Sensi, Dalbert; Ivan Perisic, Sebastiano Esposito.
SUBS: Gianluigi Buffon, Grigoris Kastanos, Matheus Pereira, Leonardo Loria, Pietro Beruatto, Luca Coccolo, Emre Can, Idrissa Toure, Stephy Mavididi, Alessandro Di Pardo, Mario Mandzukic, Nikolai Baden Frederiksen, Simone Muratore, Daniele Rugani, Merih Demiral.
JUVENTUS (4-3-3): Wojciech Szczesny; Joao Cancelo, Matthijs de Ligt, Leonardo Bonucci, Mattia De Sciglio; Miralem Pjanic, Adrien Rabiot, Blaise Matuidi; Federico Bernardeschi, Gonzalo Higuain, Cristiano Ronaldo.
For each side, this is their second match of this year’s competition and both are looking to bounce back from defeats in their opening games. Inter were beaten 1-0 by Manchester United on Saturday while, the following day, Harry Kane’s last-minute wonder goal for Tottenham condemned Juventus to a 3-2 loss.
