Serie A - Juve peg back Inter with late goal

Ten-man Juventus snatched an unlikely point in a 1-1 draw with Serie A leaders Internazionale thanks to Zdenek Grygera's injury time equaliser in Turin.
Mario Balotelli's 64th minute opener had looked like sending Inter 13 points clear at the top of the table, especially after Juve were reduced to 10 men following the dismissal of Tiago on 76 minutes.
But Grygera pounced in the first minute of time added on to peg back Inter, although the champions remain 10 points ahead and well on course to claim a fourth straight Scudetto.
