Juventus-Empoli 1-0, Kean enters and decides the match
Allegri has done everything to remove him from the spotlight but without Cristiano Ronaldo and Dybala, this Juventus cannot do without Moise Kean. In the pre-match press conference, Allegri had quarreled with journalists in an attempt to protect Kean: "It takes calm, made a goal with Liechtenstein and seems to have become Ronaldo or Messi. My concern is when it will recover from this media hangover, but it is human. And if the next match doesn't strike a ball for everyone, it will become a jug. The young live on ups and downs: that he has the qualities of a goleador is undoubted, but from this to become a champion he passes. I must protect him because I know how boys are made ”.
For this reason, Allegri decided to keep him on the bench. The Tuscan coach was hoping not to use it to get him back to earth but his team was disappointing against Empoli, the fans were whistling, and so at 69 'he could do nothing but enter the field. At this moment Kean succeeds and, on the second ball he touched, at 71 ′, took Juventus ahead with an elusive right foot on an assist from Mandzukic.

The Juventus fans booed the team in the hope of waking it up for the second half.
