25.10.2020 » Juventus 1-1 Hellas Verona. Another upset in the Serie A

Paulo Dybala raises his hands to his head

Something is not clicking right for Juventus in the Serie A this season, as the Italian champions dropped points again, this time in a 1-1 draw against Hellas Verona. Without Ronaldo, the Bianconeri saw Kulusevksi scoring their only goal in Turin.

It was far from being a successful night for Andrea Pirlo and his men, as Juventus hosted Hellas Verona in Turin and failed to go beyond a disappointing 1-1 draw. The Vecchia Signora suffered multiple setbacks throughout tonigth's game and if losing 2 points wasn't bad enough, they may have lost Bonucci for next Wednesday's clash against Barcelona, after seeing the experienced defender leaving the field in visible pain. The only goal scored by the Italian champions was delivered by Kulusevksi, but without Ronaldo on the team, Juventus was unable to convert their superiority on the pitch with more goals and had to settle with a point.

Juventus 1-1 Hellas - Goals and highlights:

Another disappointing draw in turin...

Almost everything that could have gone wrong for Juventus tonight, basically went wront... Pirlo was looking to bounce back from last weekend's 1-1 draw against Crotone, but his team ended up repeating the same result this Sunday, with the aggravating factor that this time they dropped points at home...

Juventus hit the woodwork twice in the course of the 90 minutes, had a goal scored by Alvaro Morata disallowed and still had one of their most important players — Bonucci — leaving the field due to injury.

Pirlo played a quite offensive lineup, with a dynamic 3-5-2 formation. Szcesceny played in goal, right behind a defensive trio formed by Danilo, Bonucci and Demiral. In midfield, the Bianconeri packed the field Rabiot, Arthur, Ramsey, Cuadrado and Bernardeschi, leaving the upfront tasks to Paulo Dybala and Álvaro Morata. The hosts were expected to dominate and have a lot more possession than their opponents, but sometimes, that's not enough to actually beat your rivals...

Alvaro Morata controls a ball in the air

Kulusevski scored the equalizer...

Just a few minutes before the half-time break, it looked like Juventus had finally broke Hellas Verona when Alvaro Morata lobbed the ball over the goalkeeper into the back of the net. It was a brilliant finish from the former Real Madrid forward and a perfect way to put an end to a difficult first-half. However, the VAR intervened moments later and instructed the referee to rule the goal offside. Somehow, that gave the visitors an oxygen balloon for the second half and the Italian champions would realize that sooner than later.

A bad pass from Bernardeschi in the 60th minute led to a dangerous counter-attack from Hellas Verona, as the visitors caught Juve's defense off guard and made them pay. Zaccagni found Andrea Favilli unmarked in the heart of the box and the Italian forward was clinical with his chance and beat Szcesny for the first goal of the night. Curiously, Pirlo took Bernardeschi the minute after and sent in Dejan Kulusevski.

The Bianconeri tried to react immediately, but they've only found the path to goal in the 77th minute and it was basically a moment of inspiration produced by a single player. Kulusevski grabbed the ball near the right sideline after a pass made from Alvaro Morata and used his left foot to control it, cut inside and then pick the far post to beat Marco Silvestri and score the equalizer. A great goal from the Swedish winger, who seems to be growing his influence in this Juventus team, week after week...
