A stoppage-time penalty from Cristiano Ronaldo helped Juventus secure a 1-1 draw against AC Milan in the first leg of their Coppa Italia semi-final.

Ante Rebic gave Milan the lead after 61 minutes, but they had to play with 10 men for the final 18 minutes after defender Theo Hernandez was shown a second yellow card for a rash challenge on Paulo Dybala.

The hosts then conceded a penalty in the dying minutes following a VAR review, which showed that a Ronaldo scissor kick had struck the arm of Milan defender Davide Calabria.

The Portuguese star converted the spot-kick to earn his side a draw ahead of the second leg in Turin on March 4.
