24.09.2019 » Brescia 1-2 Juventus. The champions pull off another comeback

Pjanic scores winner for Juventus

Juventus have gone through trouble in their visit to Brescia this Tuesday night, but they showed their champions' heart and grabbed the 3 points from this fixture thanks to a 2-1 win. Cristiano Ronaldo missed the game due to a small injury in his left leg

Juventus are back on the top of the Serie A table for at least a few more hours (they still have to wait for Inter's result this Wednesday night), after beating Brescia 2-1 at the Stadio Mario Rigamonti. The big surprise ahead of this clash was the news that Ronaldo was not going to be a part of it, as he was given some rest by Maurizio Sarri due to a little fatigue in his abductors. Nevertheless, the Vecchia Signora battled well and not only managed to take the 3 points home, as they've also put some additional pressure on Inter, who faces Lazio this Wednesday. With Ronaldo unavailable to give his contribution, the visitors' goals came from an own goal and a great strike from Pjanic, who scored his first goal of the season for the Bianconeri.

Brescia 1-2 Juventus - Goals and highlights:

A bad start in Brescia...

There was a lot of expectation to see how Juventus would do without Ronaldo in their trip to Brescia this Tuesday evening and judging by the final score, the evaluation has to be positive. Just like in every other win they have earned this season, the Bianconeri had to settle with a 1-goal cushion to celebrate the 3 points and they've done that with a bit of luck in the process too...

With Cristiano Ronaldo recovering from a minor injury, Sarri changed his tactics a bit and played Ramsey behind Dybala and Higuaín in the attack. In midfield, several changes were brought in too, as Khedira, Pjanic and Rabiot made it to the starting eleven. In defense, Buffon got replaced by Szczesny and De Ligt took Demiral's spot in the centre to partner up with Bonucci. Alex Sandro and Danilo were tasked with the left and right-back positions.

The opening goal arrived very early in the game, as Brescia managed to surprise the Italian champions with less than 5 minutes on the clock. The visitors were trying to press high up the pitch, but a good combination of passes and movement allowed the home side to counter fast and create a good shooting opportunity for Alfredo Donnarumma. The Italian forward hit it hard and beat Szczesny for the first time on the night.

The own-goal ignited the comeback...

The Vecchia Signora responded well however and even before scoring the equalizer, they got close to hit the back of the net for at least a couple of times. Rabiot, Higuaín and Khedira all had good chances to write their names on the scoresheet, but none of them actually managed to do it and it would be a Brescia player showing how it's done... A corner kick on the right from Pjanic went straight into Jhon Chancellor's body and the deflection beat Joronen in goal as the ball rolled in. Back to square one and still plenty of time ahead to grab the lead...

The half-time break then arrived and Sarri preferred not to change any players as he hoped for a better response in the second half. Danilo had already came out for Cuadrado in the 20th minute due to another injury, but the truth is that when looking at Juventus' bench and with Ronaldo absent, there weren't that many options for the last third of the pitch. The most attacking player Sarri had at his disposal was Bernardeschi, who is an attacking midfielder rather than a forward.

The winning goal was scored in the 63rd minute, when a free-kick from Paulo Dybala slammed against Brescia's wall, allowing Pjanic to try his luck as well from the rebound. The Serbian midfielder hit the ball hard and fast, picking the low left corner on Jesse Joronen and giving him no chance at all. Juve had finally grabbed the lead and despite a few scares in the minutes remaining, they managed to hold on and collect the important 3 points.
