Crotone 1-1 Juventus
Buts : Simy (12e sp) for Crotone // Morata (21e) for Juve
Expulsion: Church (60e)
Without Cristiano Ronaldo, Juve bring back only one point from their trip to Crotone.
And the worst part is that she didn’t deserve better. Simy gave the promoted lead early in the match, converting a penalty kick from Arkadiusz Reca ahead of Leonardo Bonucci. Ten minutes later, Álvaro Morata equalized by tearing up to cut a cross from Federico Chiesa after a counterattack. 1-1, at halftime. Coming back from the locker room, Luca Cigarini missed a golden opportunity to put Crotone ahead.
A little later, the former Florentine arrived late … The sanction is heavy: red card for Chiesa, who was making his debut in the jersey White black. Paradoxically, Juve got their best chances ten to eleven. Morata found the post with a header and then the Spaniard celebrated his brace. Before seeing his goal canceled by the referee, the VAR having revealed an offside of a few centimeters. The score will not move: 1-1, final score.
Sure that Liverpool supporters sympathize with those of Juve, for the goal denied.
