Inter Milan scored the Serie A lead on Saturday. Juventus responded now – with a work victory against Inter's city rivals AC Milan. Although Juve did not stain with fame, it was enough for the threesome. Dissatisfied but should have been Cristiano Ronaldo.
He came, saw and met Paulo Dybala.
Although Milan plays a mixed season, but actually has a well-staffed squad and can turn out to be extremely unpleasant opponent. That's what Juve felt.
Milan, which started with Donnarumma, Suso, Calhanoglu and Piatek, among others, sold well in half, was more active and had better quality chances – Krunic (4th), Piatek (17th), Paqueta (25th). ), Theo (45.) and again Piatek (45. + 1) left some good opportunities unused.
Turin is struggling – CR7 has to get out again
On the opposite side, Turin did extremely hard, with few exceptions (Higuain, 9th, 14th) hardly any danger, which was mainly due to lack of speed. Even Cristiano Ronaldo was just a shadow of himself and was replaced as already on Wednesday in the Champions League at Lokomotiv Moscow, this time even after 55 minutes. Visibly eaten the Portuguese left the field and ran straight into the catacombs – a meaningful finish.
But even without CR7, had come for Dybala, Juve did not succeed in the further course, to earn reasonable scoring chances. With the exception of a few long-range shots (Matuidi, 54th, 67th, Dybala, 69th), Donnarumma did not have much to do in the Milanese gate.
Dybala takes the helm
Ironically, it was Dybala who ripped the wheel around – in a phase where the game was brewing: Eimal combined Juve quickly and promptly offered the Argentinian a chance, which he used with his weaker right 16 meters into the left corner (77.). As in Moscow – there Douglas Costa swung to match winner – so decided the man the game for Juve, who came on for CR7.
