Lukaku sent off for celebrating late goal at Juve


Inter Milans forward Romelu Lukaku (C) argues with Juventus midfielder Juan Cuadrado from Colombia during the Italian Cup semi-final first leg football match between Juventus and Inter Milan on April 4 2023 at the "Allianz Stadium" in Turin.

Romelu Lukaku scored a 95th-minute penalty and was then sent off in Inter Milan’s dramatic Coppa Italia draw against Juventus in Turin.

Juan Cuadrado’s strike put Juventus ahead in the 83rd minute before Gleison Bremer’s handball presented Inter with an added-time spot-kick.

Lukaku was sent off for his celebrations in front of the home fans.

Inter captain Samir Handanovic and Cuadrado were also shown red cards after the final whistle.

Following Lukaku’s penalty and the second yellow card that followed it, scuffles broke out between players from both sides and continued down the tunnel.

Defending Coppa Italia champions Inter are without a win in five matches and their poor form has heaped pressure on manager Simone Inzaghi.

Cremonese host Fiorentina in the second semi-final on Wednesday, with the second legs of both ties set to be played on 26 and 27 April.
