Fifteen seconds of action on April 26, 1998 determined the conspiracy and resentment that accompanied the Derby d'Italia over the next 20 years.

In the 69th minute at the Stadio delle Alpi that day, Juventus, Serie A leader, beat Inter Milan 1-0, just one point behind, in a possible title decision.

Inter, who had struggled without much to see goal, sniffed suddenly.

A push from Ivan Zamorano, a brief clash of black and white-clad defenders, and the ball breaks in the way of Inter's spearhead Ronaldo. The Brazilian pushes the ball into space, but before he can fly, he is hit by a shoulder charge from defender Mark Iuliano.

All eyes turn to referee Piero Ceccarini, but he waves at playing. With a track of inter-midfield players following the officer and their gesturing manager Luigi Simoni being led out of the field, Juventus breaks the field.
