27.01.2019 » Lazio 1-2 Juventus. Cancelo and Ronaldo turned it around for Juve

Ronaldo and Chiellini in Juventus 2-1 win over Lazio

Juventus went through a complex situation in Rome this Sunday night, as they saw themselves slammed against the ropes against Lazio, but somehow managed to turn things around and win the game 2-1.

If there were any games this season where Juventus clearly deserved to lose, tonight's match against Lazio certainly tops that list. For the first time in Italy this season, the Bianconeri were not the better side on the pitch and the final score doesn't make true justice to what really happened at the Stadio Olimpico this Sunday night. Against what many football experts listed on betbrain were predicting when they saw Juventus trailing by one deep inside the second half (odds 11.00), the Italian champions were still able to pull off the 3 points at the end despite being massive underdogs when there were only 30 minutes left to be played. However, those 3 points are all that matters for history books. Lazio grabbed the lead in the 59th minute of the game, but the Allegri's men comeback started in the 74th minute with a goal from João Cancelo and would be completed with a Cristiano Ronaldo goal from the penalty spot, in the 88th minute. Juve are now 11 points clear of Napoli and are probably already thinking in their UEFA Champions League clash against Atletico Madrid on February 20.

All Cristiano Ronaldo actions vs Lazio:

Lazio unexpected domination

It's not the first comeback we've seen from Juventus this season, but it certainly was one of the less deserving wins from the reigning champions in Italy. With Lazio entering this game a lot more determined and organized than the Vecchia Signora, we could at times think that the two sides had swapped shirts before the kickoff given how things unfolded at the Stadio Olimpico.

We could try to resume this game by pointing out a few stats we were looking at when half-time came in. Juventus didn't manage to make a single shot attempt in the first 45 minutes of this game, while Lazio had already created multiple chances to score and had more than 10 shots at Szczesny. Massimiliano Allegri couldn't be happy with what he was seeing...

However, one way or another, Lazio didn't get the goal they were looking for in the first half and both teams walked into the dressing rooms at half-time with a goalless draw displayed on the scoreboard. The second half had a different script reserved for us though...

The champions showed their heart

After an entire hour of domination and creating the best chances to score, the hosts finally found the back of the net in the 59th minute, following a clumsy header from Emre Can. Luis Alberto took a corner-kick on the left and the former Liverpool midfielder, who wasn't seeing the ball coming, basically got hit in the head and beat Szczesny in the process.

Nothing was going according to plan for Juventus tonight, but at least there was still time to react and get something positive out of this game. Massimiliano Allegri, who had already been forced to replace an injured Bonucci for Chiellini near the half-time break, made a couple more changes after the goal that proved to be very beneficial for his team. Bernardeschi came in for Matuidi in the 60th minute, while João Cancelo stepped in for Douglas Costa in the 70th. And it wouldn't take long for these two to make an impact in this game...

In the 74th minute, a great run from Bernardeschi on the left led to a first shot to be blocked by Lazio's goalkeeper, but João Cancelo was in the right place at the right time and easily tapped it in to equalise the game at 1-1. Fresh legs upfront and the visitors were suddenly a bigger threat!

But we weren't done for the night and when the referee spotted Lazio's captain pulling Bentancur inside the hosts' box, he didn't hesitate pointing to the penalty mark. As usual, Cristiano Ronaldo didn't run away from his responsibilities and kept his composure when he converted the penalty. 2-1 for Juventus and 3 points in a very difficult game!
