MILAN - Inter drew 1-1 with Juventus in Wednesday's Primavera Tim Cup final return at the Centro Sportivo Giacinto Facchetti after losing the first leg 2-0. Both goals came in the first half, with Attila Filkor equalising from the penalty spot after Lanzafame's volleyed opener for the Bianconeri.
Sebastian Ribas almost got the Nerazzurri off to a dream start but fired wide after being put through by Balotelli in the opening minute. The Uruguayan had a second chance minutes later, his diagonal volley finishing over the bar.
Juventus scored against the run of play on 33 minutes when Lanzafame beat Tornaghi with a volleyed finish from close range. Inter were level before the interval through Hungarian midfielder Attila Filkor, who found the bottom left corner from the penalty spot after Ribas was hauled down in the box.
Tornaghi made a series of second-half saves from Maniero and Giovninco to keep Inter in the game after the restart, and Balotelli went close to reducing the arrears with an overhead kick before the dismissal of Bonucci as Juve held on for a 3-1 aggregate victory.
