Romelu Lukaku, who scored Inter Milan’s equalizer against their fierce rivals Juventus on Tuesday night, was subjected to racist taunts before shockingly getting a second yellow card for his celebration.

In the 83rd minute, Juan Cuadrado scored to give Juventus the lead before Gleison Bremer’s handball gave Inter a late penalty shot. The Chelsea loanee from Belgium, Romelu Lukaku, scored from the penalty spot to salvage a 1-1 draw in the first leg of the Coppa Italia semifinal match. After the final horn, Samir Handanovic, the Inter captain, and Cuadrado were also given red cards following the incident.

Scuffles started between players from both teams after Lukaku’s penalty and the second yellow card that came after it, and they continued down the tunnel. Inter, the defending Coppa Italia champions, have gone five games without a victory, and their poor performance has put boss Simone Inzaghi under a lot of strain.
