FLORENCE, ARTEMIO FRANCHI STADIUM – Fiorentina-Juventus 0-3, goal: Bentancur 31 ', Chiellini 68' and Cristiano Ronaldo on penalty 79 '.
Juventus does not even stop in Florence, where it has often fallen in the past, and continues its incredible race towards the eighth championship in a row. It ended 3-0 for the Bianconeri, Ronaldo scored again this time on a penalty to seal the result, 13th victory in 14 races, a positive streak away from 19 November 2017: that day the Lady lost to Genoa with Samp , has since ringed 20 consecutive consecutive earnings matches in the league. In short, a monstrous team.
It was the young Bentancur, at the tenth race in a row from the start, to unlock in the first half with a big left after a triangulation with Dybala while Chiellini shot in half with a half turn (the Orsato referee resorted to the Var to assess a possible offside, even in the first part of the match was resorted to the technology by not granting a penalty to Juve for an alleged touch of arm of Biraghi) and then Ronaldo who transformed the penalty granted for an arm in the area of Edimilson Fernandes. The Fiorentina, inferior from every point of view, has held up the impact of the Italian champions only for 30 'despite the thrust of 40,000 fans.
Pioli chose to rely on the same training in Bologna confirming Gerson in the trident with Chiesa and Simeone despite having recovered the former Pjaca (entered the second half without a trace): the only exception is the return of Pezzella after the injury. In Juventus the great tactical innovation of Allegri was the use of the former purple Cuadrado from the middle, for the rest Dybala deployed behind the attack tandem Ronaldo-Mandzukic. Before the race the Juventus captain Chiellini has deposited a bunch of flowers under the tribune to pay homage to Astori, in turn remembered with a chorus at the minute 13 also by more than 2500 Juventus supporters, among the applauses of the purple public.
Fascinating choreography by Fiesole is particularly evocative, dedicated to Riccardo Magherini, the former viola youth player who died in 2014 on a street in the center of Florence after being arrested by the police. At the ready was Fiorentina to create a thrill for Juventus with a powerful shot by Benassi outside, but Juve from the height of his obvious superiority knew that sooner or later would have managed to hit and sink the young Fiorentina tender. And so it was.
Only at the beginning of recovery the purple team has managed to put a bit 'of havoc in the Juventus area but this time did not materialize with its strikers, primarily Simeone, thus extending to exactly two months the fast of victories (just 5 points won in last seven games).
At the end of the Fiesole curve there were choirs against the Della Valle (the honorary president Andrea was in the stands) while the Juventus players celebrated the umpteenth success acclaimed by their supporters.
