That's all from Turin today, so thank you for joining us and goodbye!
While Juve have important clashes with Lazio and Europa League opponents Sporting to come in the next week, Inter will aim to end their winless run by beating Salernitana on Friday. The teams will reconvene in Milan for the second leg, on April 26.
What a conclusion to this Coppa Italia semi-final first leg! After a sedate first 82 minutes, Juventus took the lead in typical style and seemed set for victory in front of their own fans, but Bremer's aberration and Lukaku's spot-kick snatched parity for Inter ahead of the second leg. Then, all hell broke loose as the goalscorer and his captain were dismissed at the end - followed by Cuadrado. There's sure to be bad blood spilling over into round two at San Siro later this month!
S. Handanovič
Red Card
90' + 9' Following a post-match tussle with Cuadrado, Inter's captain is also dismissed: Handanovic sees red!
J. Cuadrado
Red Card
90' + 9' After arguing with Handanovic following the final whistle, Cuadrado now joins Lukaku in seeing red! It's a chaotic conclusion to the match!
J. Cuadrado
Yellow Card
90' + 5' Due to his reaction to Inter's equaliser, Cuadrado is booked by the referee.
90' + 5' After reacting angrily to provocation from the crowd following his converted penalty, Lukaku is sensationally sent off!
R. Lukaku
Penalty Goal
90' + 5' INTER EQUALISE! Coolly, calmly, Lukaku steps up and slots his penalty into the bottom-left corner! Perin went the wrong way! It's 1-1 in the final minute of stoppage time!
90' + 4' PENALTY FOR INTER! Under no immediate pressure, Bremer fails to make clean contact with a defensive header just inside the area and the ball strikes his outstretched arm! The VAR will double-check, but it seems that Inter have a late lifeline in this first leg!
90' + 2' Inzaghi wears the look of a man under serious pressure as he stands cross-armed on the sidelines: Inter are seconds away now from another loss - and their third of the season to Juventus.
90' Alert to the last, Locatelli makes a vital block deep inside his own box, as Lukaku picks up a flicked pass from Acerbi and drives the ball hard at goal.
F. Miretti
Yellow Card
89' Substitute Miretti receives a yellow card for going in high on a challenge with Asllani.
88' On the left byline, Gosens tries to bundle the ball behind off Gatti, but despite his protests Inter are not awarded a corner. It's fairly desperate stuff from the Nerazzurri right now.
J. Correa
L. Martínez
86' Inzaghi makes a final switch up front, as the ineffective Martinez is replaced by his compatriot, Correa.
85' While there is still the second leg to come, back on home soil, Inter are heading for a fourth defeat from five if they can't turn things around in the closing stages here.
J. Cuadrado
83' JUVE LEAD! Once again, the Bianconeri outlast their opponents and strike late on! This time, Cuadrado beats Handanovic with an unerring low drive from the right side of the six-yard box and puts the home side 1-0 ahead! Bastoni tried his best to clear it on the line, but to no avail!
D. Dumfries
D. D'Ambrosio
81' As Dumfries replaces the withdrawn D'Ambrosio and slots in on the right flank, Darmian drops into the back three.
K. Asllani
M. Brozović
81' A subdued performance from Brozovic is over; Asllani comes on in central midfield.
R. Lukaku
Yellow Card
80' A cynical late lunge from Lukaku hacks down Gatti by the corner flag and is deemed worthy of a yellow card by the referee.
77' CLOSE! Rabiot surges from midfield, sending a rare burst of excitement through the stands, but Kostic can't then make a clean cross from the left. Juve the recycle the ball and Cuadrado's low cross-shot is almost turned in by Milik from close range! He could only get a couple of studs to it!
75' Losing his way on the left side of the area, after the hosts force an opening in the Inter defence, Chiesa overruns the ball into a back-tracking Barella and then chops down his Italy team-mate in trying to win it back.
A. Milik
D. Vlahović
73' Starved of service today, Vlahovic is predictably withdrawn. Milik comes on to provide fresh legs up front for Juve.
71' Kostic chases back to shepherd the ball behind as Inter seek a direct route to Darmian down the right. For his endeavours, the tireless wideman is thanked by Perin.
R. Gosens
F. Dimarco
69' A straight swap on the left sees Gosens take the place of Dimarco, who is just back from injury.
R. Lukaku
E. Džeko
68' Inzaghi now responds with a double change of his own. First, Lukaku replaces a tired-looking Dzeko.
68' Off balance and not in the best position to shoot, Brozovic nonetheless opts to take a crack at goal from the edge of the box and sends the ball high over the crossbar.
66' Another hopelessly optimistic effort from Danilo zips well wide of the left-hand post from distance, and the Juve skipper would surely have been better off playing in a team-mate there.
F. Miretti
N. Fagioli
65' Fagioli's lively showing is not enough to see him given a full 90 minutes; fellow youngster Miretti comes on in midfield.
F. Chiesa
Á. Di María
65' A dire display from Di Maria is mercifully brought to its end by Allegri, as Chiesa comes on in his place.
64' JUST WIDE! Teed up by Dimarco, who lays the ball off inside the area with his back to goal, Mkhitaryan flashes a low drive across goal and narrowly past the right-hand post! That's better from Inter!
63' There seems to be some movement near the touchline, and perhaps some substitutions can help unlock this stalemate in the final half-hour? It certainly needs some fresh impetus from somewhere.
61' After that brief burst of Juventus threat, Inter are back in charge of the ball - but going nowhere fast. Even Di Maria is sitting within 30 yards of his own goal, as Juve lie deep.
59' At the last moment, Vlahovic is denied a chance to spin and shoot from 10 yards by D'Ambrosio, and when the ball then falls to his fellow Serbian, Kostic, the winger thumps a thunderous attempt over the crossbar.
57' Cuadrado and Fagioli both find themselves thwarted on the right side of the area, before Gatti is penalised for a clumsy challenge on Dzeko, who is happy to topple over and earn his team a free-kick.
55' Another misplaced pass from Di Maria, who picks the ball up deep inside his own half, leaves Rabiot with too much work to do if he is to retrieve it, and it is swallowed up by an untroubled Inter defence.
53' Typically unambitious, despite being the home side today, Juventus are packed inside their defensive third, with Vlahovic left entirely isolated near the halfway line.
51' After having 62 per cent of the possession during the first half, Inter are now attempting to boss the ball again, as they pass patiently around in front of Juve's low block.
49' A chorus of groans rises from the stands as Di Maria gets lost in traffic when Juve try to break through the centre. The Old Lady's chief creator has been off the pace so far today.
47' CLOSE! At full stretch, Vlahovic leaps high to reach a headed chance at the back post following Fagioli's cross, but he can't keep it under control and the ball flashes just over the crossbar!
46' Juventus kick off, and we are back under way in Turin!
Though Juve have beaten them in both Serie A contests this season, Inter have won when it really matters in the Derby d'Italia of late: they have snatched both a Supercoppa and last year's Coppa Italia final from their old rivals. Can they now take a lead back to Milan for the second leg of this semi?
Perhaps predictably, the first half of this opening leg has been largely cautious and ends with neither team having found the net. Though there were a handful of openings for both sides, each goalkeeper has had only one major save to make. Inter have bossed the ball but lacked sharpness in the final third, while Juventus remain reluctant to throw bodies forward and have rarely sustained a threat.
45' Bremer dives in with a late block to deny Dimarco a clear shot from near the left byline, conceding a corner. From the resulting set-piece, D'Ambrosio heads over the bar from close range.
43' First, Vlahovic can't reach a cross by Kostic from the left, then Cuadrado fails to break through on the right, as Juventus search hopefully for a goal before half-time.
M. Brozović
Yellow Card
41' For his second display of dissent in a few minutes, Brozovic earns himself a yellow card - the first of today's game.
39' In unison, Dimarco and Brozovic launch passionate appeals for a possible Fagioli handball in the Juventus area, but both the referee and the VAR are unmoved - there's no penalty.
37' Handanovic fields the ball comfortably, after Fagioli's clipped cross from the right is steered straight at the Slovenian by a tame Vlahovic header.
35' Under pressure from D'Ambrosio, deep inside his own area, Bremer powers a header away from danger - assertive stuff from the Brazilian, who could so easily have been wearing Nerazzurri today.
33' SHARP STOP! Dropping low to keep out Brozovic's centrally placed shot, Perin scrambles the ball away! Juventus had been slack at the back, and Mkhitaryan managed to steal possession and tee up his midfield colleague.
32' Just as he lines up a strike from the edge of the area, Gatti is penalised for a pull on Martinez and another Juve move comes to its end.
30' On the stretch, Dimarco sends a cross over for his fellow wing-back Darmian, who arrives late at the back post but can't keep his volley under control - it flies well wide of the target.
28' Near the penalty spot, Acerbi nods away Di Maria's inswinging free-kick and Juve's latest attack ultimately peters out. They can't quite build up a head of steam here.
26' Juventus are again pushing a few yards further up the pitch, and they twice draw fouls to earn free-kicks in the Inter half - can they actually make Handanovic work again, though?
24' Dzeko drops his shoulder and ambles in from the right flank, but then his 20-yard shot scuttles along harmlessly into the waiting gloves of Perin, situated in the centre of Juve's goal.
22' Bastoni makes a vital intervention near his own goal-line, as he flicks the ball away for a corner with Danilo desperately trying to turn it in at the back post.
21' Now it's Inter's turn to drop back and absorb some gentle pressure from their opponents, and this first leg is unsurprisingly shaping up to be a tightly-contested affair.
19' Chopping inside, Dzeko wrong-foots Rabiot and earns his side a free-kick around 30 yards out from goal. Dimarco takes a pop, but Perin is easily equal to it and gathers the ball at his second attempt.
17' Inter are now enjoying a little more of both ball and territory, and the home side sink back into their familiar defensive shape under conservative coach Max Allegri.
15' While Inter have just lost three successive Serie A games for the first time in six years, before today's contest Juventus had won eight of their last nine in all competitions - including the most recent Derby d'Italia.
13' A rather rash challenge by Dimarco, just back from injury for Inter, gifts Juve a free-kick 40 yards out from goal. Cuadrado delivers it into the box, but the visitors' defence clears the ball without too much trouble.
11' Rising highest near the penalty spot, Martinez connects with a header from Bastoni's left-wing cross but can only send it looping over the crossbar as Perin watches on.
10' D'Ambrosio does not clear his lines properly, gifting the ball back to Juventus, and Danilo takes the invitation to shoot from the left side of the area. However, his ambitious attempt is blazed well over the top.
8' Attempting to take the sting out of the game, Inter are keeping the ball inside their own half and certainly in no hurry to push forward in numbers. Then, almost by default, a cross from deep on the right is missed by a wild swing from Martinez on the edge of the box.
6' Ending a short spell of Juventus pressure, Locatelli lets fly with a 20-yard effort which spirals far over the crossbar and into the packed stands behind Inter's goal.
4' SAVE! Locatelli steals the ball in central midfield and sends Di Maria away on the counter, and after the playmaker shakes off Bastoni he shoots towards the bottom-left corner. Handanovic dives low to tip the ball behind for a corner!
3' After Darmian sees a cutback from the right byline blocked behind, Dimarco sends over an inswinging corner which Juve manage to clear at the second attempt.
1' Inter kick off, and we are under way in Turin!
The players emerge from the tunnel, under the lights at Allianz Stadium, and kick-off is now just moments away!
For Inter, Dzeko and Martinez return in tandem up front, as Lukaku and Correa failed to spark on Saturday. Though Hakan Calhanoglu and Milan Skriniar both remain injured, Federico Dimarco returns on the left flank, so Gosens is relegated to the bench. Club captain Handanovic replaces Onana in goal, while D'Ambrosio is back between a two-match Serie A ban for seeing red against Juventus last month.
After Kean scored the winner while partnering Milik at the weekend, today Di Maria supports Vlahovic up front for Juventus, who also bring Rabiot back into the starting XI. Meanwhile, in goal, cup keeper Perin replaces Szczesny. Paul Pogba and Leonardo Bonucci are still out injured, while Chiesa's ongoing fitness troubles see him consigned to the bench.
SUBS: Andre Onana, Alex Cordaz, Kristjan Asllani, Mattia Zanotti, Romelu Lukaku, Valentin Carboni, Stefan de Vrij, Joaquin Correa, Roberto Gagliardini, Robin Gosens, Denzel Dumfries, Raoul Bellanova.

Ahead of the latest Derby d'Italia, inconsistent Inter have continued to falter, and Simone Inzaghi's side suffered their 10th league defeat of the season on Saturday. Beaten 1-0 by Serie A's form side Fiorentina, they are now hanging on to a top four place, with Juventus among the clubs pursuing them. For all their failures, the Nerazzurri can still salvage some silverware from a difficult campaign, as not only are they still standing in the Champions League but they could yet reach next month's Coppa Italia final in Rome, where either Fiorentina or Cremonese will await.
Having sealed a Serie A double over Inter last month at San Siro, Juventus lock horns with their old rivals again today, this time at home in Turin. The Bianconeri have just won five straight games after Saturday's defeat of Verona, closing their deficit to Inter down to six points. Now meeting for the third time this season, these giants of Calcio contest a two-legged Coppa Italia semi-final tie in a repeat of last year's final, which the Milan club won after extra time. Nonetheless, Juve have lifted the trophy 14 times before - a national record and six more than their second-city counterparts.
Hello and welcome to live coverage of today's Coppa Italia semi-final first-leg clash between Juventus and Inter at the Allianz Stadium!
