TURIN, ALLIANZ STADIUM – Juventus-Cagliari 3-1, goal: Paulo Dybala 44 ", Joao Pedro 36 ', Bradaric own goal 38', Cuadrado 86 ' . Last Saturday's advance of the Italian Serie A football championship.
Juventus returns to +6, with 31 points collected in the first 11 days, a record for the Bianconeri. But at the 'manite' of Napoli and Inter, Allegri's team responded with a success (3-1) on Cagliari remained in the balance until the 88 'when Ronaldo, launched counterattack by Cuadrado, showed altruism and instead of trying the personal goal, he served the Colombian in the center area.
In the first action Juventus was saved with difficulty, thanks to the 'wall' of Benatia on Pavoletti, after an insistent action by the Sardinians in attack. Up until that point, Juve's success had been decided by Bradaric's most classic of the own goals, when Cagliari had just remedied. Merit of the rossoblù of Maran and guilt of a less brilliant Juve than usual in midfield, where he was equal to the Bentancur only, while Pjanic and Matuidi have disappointed. And with the change of the Bosnian (replaced by an outsider, Alex Sandro), in the middle of the second half, the set-up did not improve, making it feel the absence of Khedira, still on the bench, and Emre Can, convalescent.
Cagliari would have probably deserved to close the first half on par after having forced Juventus to adapt to his game and not only to suffer the Juventus initiative. And perhaps he would have done it without the unfortunate slip-on, 'to Niccolai', by Bradaric, three minutes after Joa Pedro's draw. The Sardinians, under the pressure of Barella and Castro, had not been depressed by the 1-0 signed by Dybala after just 45 ", an action in which he drank the whole defense with a change of direction and falling right on the first pole, with the net validated after the first of the three Var, all in the first 45 '.
Once the measures were taken to Douglas Costa and the source of his launches cut off by cutting the field, Cagliari only conceded another real ball-goal to the Bianconeri in the time, a fired-off Douglas Costa driven by Fists closed by Cragno, and has touched 1-1 with a turn of Pavoletti, stopped on the line of goal from Szczesny. Juventus defense asleep on the equalizer of Joao Pedro. The joy of Cagliari is a turn of the hand: the own goal of Bradaric has canceled the effort of the team of Maran. Then I work for the Var to decide between shoulder and hand in the touch of Benatia (17 '), as it would have happened at 39' for a Bradaric intervention.
In either case, the referee's decision did not change after the replay was viewed. A wood of CR7 was printed on the post (47 ') for the disappointment of the Portuguese, to which the bianconero public had given a standing ovation even before the whistle of the beginning, when he withdrew from the president Agnelli the celebrative shirt for the 400 goals scored between Premier League, Spanish Liga and Serie A.
Change of Allegri after the interval: out of Douglas Costa, who had died off after a good start, inside Cuadrado. Szczesny had to get (24 ') on a cross from Srna to anticipate Pavoletti.
Juve forward in the final, even if with a formation full of defenders – also in Barzagli for Matuidi. The Cagliari to look for a draw, only touched, was punished with a counterattack of Cuadradro-Ronaldo.
