4 red cards, an endless VAR intervention and an equalizer in the 94th: the Salernitana made life difficult for Juve

Juve, voluntary but messy, was punished by the players of Salerno on a goal from veteran Antonio Candreva (18th) who concluded at the far post a tense cross from Mazzochi, author of a nice number on the left side. 100% success for visitors who only scored on their single attempt on target. Then the Turinese conceded a penalty, Bremer having deflected with his arm the shot from Piatek who took care of executing the sentence himself after an interminable analysis of the VAR (45 + 4th).

More biting after the break, Juve first reduced the gap thanks to a furious header from Bremer (51st) then logically returned to the score by their captain Bonucci, victoriously resuming their strike after seeing their penalty repelled by the visitors’ goalkeeper (90 + 4th).

The Turinese even thought they had the three points of victory when Milik scored, but his goal was canceled for an offside position. Incidents then broke out, resulting in four exclusions, two on each side, including Massimiliano Allegri, the coach of Juve.

Three days before their Champions League match against Benfica, the Turinese, who remain stuck in 8th place in their championship, were not reassured. They even messed up their football and showed the face of a team in crisis of confidence.

There were certainly some brilliant actions like the one where Vlahovic scored but his goal was canceled for offside (39th), or this collective movement, which forced Fazio to clear on his post (52nd) just after the reduction of the score, but the rendering remains unsatisfactory.

Despite the strong push from the players of Massimiliano Allegri (74th, 76th) the Salernitana bent but did not break, sometimes being bold, like this strike from Boulaye Dia (79th).
