Juventus visits Roma, with the return of Paulo Dybala after overcoming an injury, in a compromise complicated by the weight of the rival and by the difficulties that the champion had in their recent away games in Serie Aas they lost three of their last four outings from Turin.
The meeting between Roma and Juventus are played from 3:45 p.m. (Argentine time) at the Olímpico, with refereeing by Marco Di Bello and live televising on ESPN (Channels 102 of Cablevisión and 621 of DirecTV).
On the second date, the Romans seek to recover from an unusual defeat suffered at the desks, due to the poor inclusion of a player in the debut against Hellas Verona.
A lackluster and uncomfortable Juventus was seen from the start. Drowned by the pressure proposed by the homeowner, especially in the middle with the tireless work of Veretout and Pellegrini, it took several minutes for the visitor to settle on the court.
With no connection in the middle, it was difficult for Pirlo’s men to take the ball to their attacking trident: Kulusevski, Cristiano and Morata. Both Cuadrado on the left and Ramsey on the right were far from the ball. And without fluency, it cost him to generate some danger.
The counterpoint was the Rome that took the reins of the party from the beginning. He drowned it in the middle and from the sides with Santos and Spinazzola, he began to generate spaces. And also situations.
At 11 it was Mkhitaryan who, after a great personal move and leaving Bonucci on the road, went hand in hand with Wojciech Szczesny, but the goalkeeper shook him well and the shot remained in his hands.
The supremacy of Rome was going to be reflected at 29 when a shot from Veretout hit Rabiot’s hand: a penalty at Veretout’s own feet, who with a low shot to the right post put it 1 to 0.
But, at 42, another hand in the area. This time the play generated by Cristiano Ronaldo hit Pellegrini’s arm. Another maximum penalty that CR7 did not forgive: shot to the left post and goalkeeper Mirante to the right: 1 to 1.
But there would be more emotions before the end of the first half: a perfect counterattack from Roma that, after an overflow from Spinazzolla’s left, was served to Veretout who, entering through the center of the area, defined below. 2 to 1 for the local and justice for what was done during the first 45.
In addition, with the advantage in favor, Roma buckled the lines and stopped for good to play counterattack. With the ball, but with a striking disconnection, it was difficult for Juventus, as in the first half, to thread the game.
At 5 and from long distance, Pedro tested Szczesny’s reflexes, but the Pole with one hand managed to deflect it to the corner. Five minutes later, Dzeko was able to extend, but after pivoting very well, he finished off wide. Roma, more compact, was still more than the faded Juventus that had it at the feet of CR7, at 12, but finished weak.
The French Rabiot went over revolutions, put his leg stronger than it should and saw the red one. There was more than half an hour to go and the outlook was definitely darkening for Juventus, which at that point was playing poorly and was left with 10.
Rodrigo Bentancur entered at 22 for a fading Ramsey. And seconds later, an overflow of Danilo on the right served it to the head of Cristiano Ronaldo who, with a dry blow to the right post, put the 2 to 2.
