Ronaldo had two chances late in the first half, but saw both turned away by the Inter defence and goalkeeper Samir Handanovic as the teams went to the dressing room locked in a goalless draw.

Handanovic was called into action again shortly before the 70-minute mark to palm away a powerful Ronaldo shot that could have put the tie away for Juventus.

Inter threw everything at Juve late on, but veteran keeper Gianluigi Buffon and his defence stood firm to secure a spot in the showpiece match.
