Entered during the game, Paulo Dybala has released the Old Lady of his lethargy by registering the only goal of a meeting leaded by too many technical approximations and a rhythm often deficient. Juve keeps the lead in Serie A.
Juventus 1-0 AC Milan
Purpose: Dybala (77e) for JuventusAn inside hook, a right shot, a Dybala goal. That's about all that the Bianconeri had to offer this Sunday. Borrowed and unimportant, Juve relied on her Joya to crucify Milan late in the game. Supremely cruel for them Rossonerialmost inevitable, given the quality gap that separates the Diavolo of that Juventus.
Milan is resisting
Suffering in the league, Milan does not want to look like an expiatory victim and presses high enough, just to show Juventus that the Diavolo is not yet completely mentally burned. Dare, but rather well seen, while the Old Lady stammers his football in the middle, like too many passes Pjanić wasteful, Bentancur and Bernardeschi, broadly off topic in the first half. It is even Milan who ignites a first firecracker in the Turin area, when Suso lays a delicious ball on the head of Piatek, whose ball goes close to the goal bianconero.
That's what prompted Milan to put a little more muzzle out: a few minutes later, at the conclusion of an inspired collective movement, Conti finds Paqueta, whose curved skull shot is superbly deflected for a corner by Szczęsny. A second warning for the Old Lady, only dangerous before the break when Bernardeschi slaloms in the defense rossonera, before kicking a shot over the Milanese bar.
Dybala the land
Not satisfied with the performance of his boys, Sarri rebuffs the cards of his game by leaving Ronaldo for Dybala, and Bernardeschi for Douglas Costa. Problem: the game bianconero it is hardly more fluidized. With the exception of a Matuidi-covered shot that flirts with the Donnarumma post, Juve keeps rowing against the tide, when Milan, much more cautious, decided to lower the mainsail to let the tub juventino. Except that everyone knows the end of this story: well offset by Higuain in the surface, Dybala enrhume his world with a skewed interior hook, before finishing his case, right foot. Superb and sickening limit for Milan, solid if not virtuoso, but decidedly too much dropped individually to make the weight. And here are the Rossoneri stagnant at 14e league rank, when Juve once again in front of the nose of Inter, to take the throne of Serie A leader.
