Juventus vs Salernitana
The Bianconeri who were off to a poor start to the season had to get the win against Salernitana at home. A club that had just about survived relegation last season. However, the visitors had lost just once this season.
That is exactly how the game panned out. The hosts had to work very hard to create chances. Juve ended up conceding twice in the first half.
Allegri’s men had a herculean task of having to overturn a two goal deficit. The club managed to get one back early in the second half. They went on to equalise in the 91st minute. Milik found the back of the net for the 3rd time in the half. Seemingly, to have won the game for his side.
He was booked for the second time in the fixture for his celebration and thus sent off. Only for his goal to be ruled out, bringing the score back to 2-2. Thus, the contest ended with a scoreline of 2-2. However, Cuadrado and Fazio were sent off before the final whistle.

Davide Nicola: “I am satisfied but we know we still have to improve a lot. We came in front of a team with great values and we played our game. Maybe we missed a bit in the last pass, which could have given us the chance to score another goal. However, we must never lose sight of our goal and in light of this we can say that tonight we have achieved a great result.”
Massimiliano Allegri: “We made a mistake on two moments, which cost us two goals. We started well, playing, building and creating favourable situations, then we made things difficult for ourselves. We were better in the second half and let’s say that this result send us into Wednesday with a better mood than a defeat. Now, let’s go and think about Benfica.”
