Inter Milan’s Nicolo Barella scored one goal and set up another to help secure a 2-0 victory over champions Juventus and send his side joint-top of Serie A while putting a major dent in the Turin side's title hopes.
Former Juve midfielder Arturo Vidal scored his first league goal for Inter when he headed in an inviting Barella cross after 12 minutes.
It was Conte's first Serie A win on his fourth attempt against the club he previously represented as a player and coach, and the result leaves Inter level on 40 points with league leaders AC Milan, but their fierce city rivals have a game in hand against Cagliari on Monday.
"We had to come here with a certain ambition of playing our own game and instead we were too fearful."
