Visit headquarters Salerno, Wednesday (1/12/2021) early morning WIB, Juventus won 2-0 thanks to goals from Paulo Dybala (21 minutes) and Alvaro Morata (70′). Juventus almost scored a third goal, but Dybala’s penalty in second-half injury time deviated from the target.

Chiellini emphasized that Allegri’s words were able to pump up the motivation of his colleagues, to then show the spirit of playing that led the team to victory.
“We need a sense of responsibility, not to do extraordinary things, just do it with the right mentality. We played with the right respect and humility, which we cannot avoid in the position we are in, and we are prepared to next game.”
“We played clean today. It didn’t always work out, but we did tonight. We knew it would be difficult to play against Salerno on their own turf, with such a fanatical crowd, but we survived.”
“I am really impressed by the coach’s words. Juventus have given a lot for me and my team-mates, so it’s time to give back. We have to stay close and together get out of difficult situations,” explained Chiellini.
