Juventus 1-1 Juventus: Juve to make comeback from 0-0 draw
Posted On August 7, 2021
By Football Italian staffThe Juventus men are back on the pitch after their last defeat to Juventus, with an emphatic 3-0 win at the Stadio Olimpico.
It was Juve’s third consecutive win in the Champions League against Juve and its third away from home.
With Juventus scoring a whopping five goals in the first half, their defence was not the issue but their inability to hold the ball up and clear the ball was.
With the match going to penalties, it seemed that Juve had the edge but with no penalty takers for the opening 15 minutes, the Bianconeri took advantage.
The first half saw Juve have five shots and six on target, with six of them being on target.
The goal that Juves scored was a simple header that came off the line of scrimmage and bounced just past the goalkeeper.
Juve were unable to hold up the ball long enough to create chances, with two shots on target and one missed.
With two penalty taker attempts, Juve got a penalty after a foul on Giorgio Chiellini, with the penalty awarded to the Biancolini’s side.
With the final whistle sounding, the Juventus players hugged each other as the Biancocelesti walked off the pitch.
The second half saw a change of direction, with Juve making two changes to the team that was in action against Inter Milan.
They brought on Giacomo Bonaventura for Raul Albiol, who scored the opener.
Albiol made his Serie A debut against Inter, and scored the first goal in the game.
Juve scored two more goals in just the second half to take the lead.
Two minutes into the second period, Albiol was brought off for his team-mate Sergio Zurita.
Zurita put the Biancorran in front on his own in the 27th minute, but it was too little too late.
Juvelin’s Paulo Dybala was able to get a free kick off the bar, and the Bianca’s keeper saved the spot kick.
After a goal-kick was saved, the penalty was awarded to Juve, with Albiol scoring the only goal of the game, and a 1-0 lead.
With a 3-2 win in front of their home fans, Juvelino will take on Inter in the semi-finals of the Champions Leagues next Wednesday.
In addition to the Juventus squad that took part in the match, the squad of other Serie A teams that were in attendance included Juventus, Fiorentina, Lazio, Inter, Lazenby and Sampdoria.
There was no news on whether the team would be wearing the red, white and blue colours for the game on Wednesday.
