Juventus 1-1 Inter Milan

Lukas Podolski made his Inter Milan debut as they salvaged a second-half draw against Juventus, whose lead at the top of Serie A is down to a point.

Juve striker Carlos Tevez bundled the defending champions ahead against an Inter side managed by his former Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini.

Arsenal loanee Podolski came on shortly after half-time and saw team-mate Mauro Icardi level with a clinical strike.

Inter's Mateo Kovacic was sent off late on, but Juve could not find a winner.

The draw means the Turin side are only one point ahead of nearest rivals Roma, who sneaked a 1-0 win at mid-table Udinese earlier on Tuesday.

However there was an element of controversy about the Giallorossi's win, with the hosts claiming that Davide Astori's 17th-minute header did not cross the line after the ball bounced down off the crossbar.
