Juventus Vs. Inter Milan, 2012 Serie A: Alessandro Del Piero Puts Juve Up 2-0

Alessandro Del Piero, subbed on for Alessandro Matri early in the second half, has reminded the world why he is still a fantastic footballer. Praise must be given to Arturo Vidal in setting up il capitano, however. The Chilean slid his ball through three Inter Milan defenders to reach the oncoming Del Piero, who calmly sent his shot toward his left. Julio Cesar, already diving in the opposite direction, could do nothing to stop the ball this time.

With just fifteen minutes remaining in the match, it is nearly impossible to imagine an Inter comeback. Claudio Ranieri did his own tinkering after Martin Caceres scored the first goal, bringing on Giampaolo Pazzini for Andrea Poli and Marco Faraoni for Joel Obi. But unlike the double switch for Juventus (in addition to the ADP for Matri switch, Simone Pepe gave way for Leonardo Bonucci) which brought a goal shortly after, the change for the visitors has brought nothing different to their game.
