Certainly, in a laborious way, Massimiliano Allegri’s Juventus of Turin were able to continue their clear recovery in Serie A. And this, lining up a fifth consecutive victory without conceding the slightest goal, on Thursday on the turf of the last of Serie A, Hellas Verona (1-0). Juve were at times bogged down by the bottom of Serie A – Sulemana’s effort (3rd), Lasagna (16th), Hongla (36th) – although Locatelli came close to scoring (38th). He raised the bar after the break, as did Adrien Rabiot.
Thus, the midfielder of the blues (27 years, 29 games, 2 goals), retained by Didier Deschamps in his list of 25 for the World Cup, first came close to the decisive pass in the 58th minute, for Moïse Kean, but the latter was a bit too short. Then, the left-handed “Duke” launched the former PSG striker perfectly, with his right foot. And this time his bid was validated, the first of the season (knowing that he has already scored five goals, three in Serie A and two in C1), because Kean, surely rightly, scored with his left foot (61st). ).
Juve “helped” by refereeing, then Alex Sandro sent off logically
It took quite a bit of success then old lady to maintain this short lead. Because Mr. Di Bello, was initially not judged by the VAR for a hand nevertheless quite flagrant and detached on the surface of Danilo (76th), which could have offered a penalty to Verona.
The referee then went back on his decision to blow one for Hellas after seeing the footage, while Bonucci’s high foot on Verdi (84) was totally punishable. As for the logical red card suffered by Alex Sandro for a big foul on the edge of the area on Lasagna (90th + 2), it had no consequences. Because Verdi has sent his foul far above (90th + 3).
