Cristiano Ronaldo’s controversial late penalty rescued a draw for below-par Juventus in the first leg of their Coppa Italia semi-final at AC Milan.

Juve looked set for a third straight away defeat after Ante Rebic’s volley put Milan ahead before the hosts lost Theo Hernandez to a second yellow card after 71 minutes.

The visitors offered little threat despite their man advantage but the late VAR-awarded spot-kick allowed Ronaldo, 35 last week, to make it 35 goals in 35 games for club and country.

The second leg in Turin is on 4 March.
