Juve moves away from the Scudetto

A goal from the Portuguese (who has 47 in the last 47 days of Serie A) did not serve to beat a great Verona, who put the tables with Barak. Inter can walk away.


Juventus once again complicates their comeback in the fight for the Scudetto. The Bianconeri, third, did not go from a draw to one against Verona and tomorrow Inter, beating Genoa, can extend their advantage over the Turinese to ten points, although with one more game. In the afternoon, after the tie between Spezia and Parma, the first surprise had come from Lazio, who fell on their visit to Bologna, showing that the hit with Bayern continues to take its toll. After a penalty missed by Immobile, the biancocelesti lost intensity and fell under the blows of Mbaye and Sansone.

La Vecchia Signora, for his part, had the opportunity to strengthen himself in the Champions zone and put pressure on the Milanese, although Pirlo arrived at the appointment in total emergency. The injured Bonucci, Chiellini, Cuadrado, Arthur, Dybala and also Morata were missing, stopped by cytomegalovirus. The Spaniard points to Porto and could rest for a few more days, also losing the match against Spezia on Tuesday. Despite the difficult situation (there were nine players from the U-23 team on the bench!), The Bianconeri started strong, with seven shots in the first quarter of an hour, their record this year.

Juric's men, however, warned the champion with a header to Faraoni's post, and as the minutes passed, they gained intensity. The game came even at half-time, but Cristiano appeared at the beginning of the restart. The Portuguese, after a lackluster first half, was once again decisive at a key moment, turning a low center at 0-1 after a great arrival from Chiesa, the fittest man on the team. After the 26th goal in 29 matches of the ex-Madridista (who has 47 in his last 47 Serie A games), however, the same happened as in the first half. Juve lost steam and Verona began to play in the rival half of the field, until they put the tables with a perfect header from Barak to a pass from Lazovic.

The locals were not satisfied with the 1-1 and kept pressing, brushing the winning goal again with Barak and a whip from Lazovic himself, which Szczesny rejected with the help of the crossbar. Juve saved at least the tie, but their physical crisis (they only won once in the last five games) is evident. A bad sign with a view to the most decisive week of the season. The appointments against Spezia, Lazio and (above all) Porto are just around the corner.
