Daniele Doveri performed his refereeing duties well in last night’s Derby d’Italia between Inter and Juventus at San Siro, according to an Italian media report today.
Arturo Vidal and Nicolo Barella secured a 2-0 win for Antonio Conte’s side in a match that was strangely low on controversy for contests between Inter and Juventus.
There was nothing of note that Doveri was judged to have done wrong but Gazzetta dello Sport, in their print edition, stated that he was right to not blow for a foul on Leonardo Bonucci in the lead up to Vidal’s opening goal after 13 minutes.
Doveri was also said to have got all his yellow card decisions correct, from the first awarded to Bonucci to the last handed out to Barella.
This was the first time since 2016 that the Inter had gotten the better of the Bianconeri in any competition and it enabled them to open up a seven-point gap in Serie A.
The Nerazzurri are in second place behind AC Milan, who will attempt to re-establish their three-point cushion at the top against Cagliari this evening.
