MILAN - Juventus beat Inter 2-1 in Sunday evening's heated 'derby d'Italia' at the Giuseppe Meazza and move twelve points clear of the Nerazzurri at the top of the Serie A table.

Both sides made an attacking start to the match, with Julio Cesar making good saves from Ibrahimovic and Emerson, and Buffon blocking a low first time effort from Cambiasso at the other end.

Inter lost Juan Sebastian Veron through injury just after the half-hour mark and was replaced by Kily Gonzalez, with Luis Figo switching to the right flank after starting on the left.

Two minutes from half time Adriano beat Buffon with a curling free kick but had the goal disallowed by referee Paparesta as it was an indirect free kick.

Juventus took the lead eighteen minutes after the restart when Zlatan Ibrahimovic stole in at the back post to slot home Camoranesi's first-time cross from the right.

Eleven minutes later Walter Samuel rose above the Bianconeri defence to head home a Figo corner and level the match with his second goal in an Inter shirt, but Juventus restored their lead five minutes from time when Del Piero beat Julio Cesar with a curling free kick into the top right corner.

Alvaro Recoba went close to a stoppage-time equaliser when his 20-metre free kick hit the post, with Nicolas Burdisso's follow-up header finishing wide.
