Goalless AC Milan Struggle in the TIM Cup with Inter Milan and Juventus

Ronaldo Assis de Moreira Analyst IIAugust 14, 2009

Juventus 2 - AC Milan 0 (Trofeo TIM, August 14, 2009) Juve took the lead after a quick counterattack, as Amauri took a shot from the edge of the area that squirmed under the body of new Milan goalkeeper Flavio Roma. The Bianconeri made it 2-nil in the 32nd minute, Ronaldinho lost the ball in Milan’s midfield and Amauri played in Vincenzo Iaquinta, who in turn slotted the ball past an unconvincing Roma.

AC Milan 0 - Inter Milan 1 (Trofeo TIM, August 14, 2009) Super Mario Balotelli scored for Inter with a header from inside the area from a free-kick by Marco Materazzi.

Inter Milan 1 - Juventus 1* (Pens. 5-6) (Trofeo TIM, August 14, 2009) The opener came in the 25th minute, when Thiago Motta did well to pick up a deflected cross by Quaresma in the area and scored with a nice lob to make it 1-nil Inter. In the 39th minute, Marco Materazzi sent off for fouling Amauri inside the area, however Iaquinta’s spot-kick was saved by Julio Cesar. Four minutes later, substitute Nelson Rivas gifted Juve the equaliser as he played a terrible back-pass to Julio Cesar, allowing Amauri to sneak in and score.
