Latest Football News – Laborious, Juventus Turin had to rely on a goal of Paulo Dybala in the last quarter of an hour to win at home against AC Milan (1-0), Sunday night. The Bianconeri thus retain their small advantage over Inter at the top of the standings at the end of the 12th day. Cristiano Ronaldo is out on injury in the second half.
The matches follow each other and are similar. Juventus is struggling, a lot of trouble, and narrowly misses the end of the game. As against Genoa ten days ago, as against Lokomotiv Moscow in the Champions League, the scenario was still that one, this Sunday in Serie A against AC Milan. The Bianconeri had to wait until an individual feat Paulo Dybala (77) to get by, against Milanese yet not impressive. The men of Maurizio Sarri take the lead of the championship, a point ahead of Inter Milan, who won Saturday against Hellas Verona (2-1).
The Argentine, with this new decisive goal, reminded how valuable it could be. At kickoff, however, he was on the bench, before replacing Cristiano Ronaldo a little more than half an hour of the term (55th). A choice of Maurizio Sarri that the Portuguese did not really taste. Uncertain before the meeting, “CR7” would have probably liked to play until the end. At the time of his release, he addressed with annoyance to the bench of Turin before spinning directly to the cloakroom.
Juve still strong behind
Maurizio Sarri and his staff will have other problems to solve, in the coming weeks. While Blaise Matuidi was out injured (70th), it is the game played by Juventus that worried. Despite its individuality, the Turin club can not find the solutions and loses a lot of balloons in the midfield. In twelve league games, Juve won just one goal by two goals. It was late September, at home against Spal (2-0).
For the moment, it is therefore the rear guard Turin that allows the eight-time champion of Italy to hold his rank. The Bianconeri have conceded only nine goals this season in Serie A and take the lead of the championship, this Sunday thanks to their victory against AC Milan. The threat is clear, all the same, with Inter Milan which points only to a small unit. Rarely heeled so closely, Juventus will have to find his game to keep his crown.
