Juventus Penalty Was Fair But Inter Didn’t Get One For Similar Incident Against Parma, Report Highlights

Inter had a reason to feel aggrieved with the penalty Juventus were awarded during last night’s 2-1 defeat in the Coppa Italia semi-final first leg, a report in the Italian media argued today.

Corriere dello Sport’s print edition argued the Bianconeri were right to be given the spot kick by referee Gianpaolo Calvarese, after Ashley Young brought down Juan Cuadrado in the box by holding onto the Colombian’s arm.

However, the decision was only made after Calvarese was sent to conduct a VAR review at pitchside, something which did not happen with a very similar incident earlier in the season.

As pointed out by the Rome-based publication, Inter were denied a penalty for a very similar incident during their 2-2 draw with Parma on October 31, when Ivan Perisic was felled by Botond Balogh.

On that occasion there was no VAR review for the incident, highlighting a lack of consistency in decision-making from referees this season.

CdS said more generally that Calvarese refereed his first Derby d’Italia fixture well, even if he missed a few yellow cards such as those for Nicolo Barella, Matteo Darmian and Weston McKennie.
