ROME – The first half of Roma-Juventus was ruined by the bad injuries of Juventus' Demiral and Roma's Nicolò Zaniolo . Both players left the pitch after suffering a painful left knee injury. Demiral got hurt shortly after scoring the goal that unlocked the game. Demiral had gone up in the penalty area of Rome in search of the brace but fell badly to the ground after an aerial fight as an opponent.
The central defender of Juventus hurt his foot and injured his knee by falling on the ground. In his place, the ex-Ajax player De Ligt entered the field. This is a bad injury for Juventus because Demiral had earned a starter shirt alongside Bonucci, undermining an expensive purchase like De Ligt.
To all this must be added the fact that Demiral had also had the merit of unlocking the game with a goal not as a defender but as a center forward. Demiral had broken free on the far post, had anticipated Kolarov, and had beaten Pau Lopez with a shot with the knee.
Shortly thereafter, Juventus doubled thanks to a suicide by Veretout. The Frenchman of Roma lost the ball and spread Dybala giving the Bianconeri a penalty. From eleven meters, Cristiano Ronaldo was not wrong. In the next few hours, Juve will release a press release on Demiral's physical condition.
