The final point in the drawing of the thirty-fourth round of Serie A had to put the home match of the current champion of the country on the “Juventus stadium”. Included in the state of turbulence Turin “Juventus” took the crisis of the Roman “Lazio”, but the results of previous meetings both teams did not affect their position in the area getting into the group stage of the UEFA Champions League for next season.
The Central match of the tour reporting team of Maurizio Sarri came with the explicit desire to inflict a crushing blow to the ambitions of “eagles” to the first line. Victory in an internal duel for “zebras” was in this context rather part of a relaxed end to the season than a necessity. Much more interested in their ability to use simultaneous misfires Milan “inter” and “Atalanta” from Bergamo and as a result, to strike in three of their pursuers.
If casual run on the statistics of the first half, we can see that Juventus are hard enough pressed to the match and created scoring chances. Lazio managed to level the percent of possession only towards the go on a break. In the same time period the eagles had their first real scoring chance, but a long shot Immobile took the left post.
The woodwork rang in this match before, but on the other side of the field. In the right-hand bar was to head the ball from Alex Sandro before the end of the first quarter of an hour, when it was especially noticeable that the “Zebra” is simply overrun the opponent in dynamic scenes. But in Turin it was too hot, even though late in the evening, to one of the teams was able long to withstand the pace of their attacks. The team of Sarri retreated closer to the break, for which he paid a moment at the gate, so such a move after the break would have been Neopolitan.
And Juve did not take risks. Ronaldo earned a penalty long-range shot that caused the ball to get with hand Bastasa right on the front edge of the box. The Portuguese himself and converted the penalty shot into the lower right corner. However, this goal was not enough joy to Ukrainian fans – the record of Andriy Shevchenko fell, and now Ronaldo is the fastest fifty goals in Serie A (61 games). In addition, Cristiano became the first player who scored so many goals in the highest leagues of England, Spain and Italy.
The record had not yet “to bronze” like Cristiano here, with a couple of Debaloy, took advantage of a mistake by Luiz Felipe in the middle of the field, after which the Argentinian made a breakthrough to the penalty area the ball to the empty net for 7-th number. Lazio were mentally depressed, however, Sarri decided to play in the giveaway with rivals. Juventus gave the ball possession, and in the end of the match paid wasted nerve cells.
On 83 minutes, Bonucci brought down in the penalty area Immobile, and then chiro from the penalty spot to the bottom left corner restored equality with Ronaldo in the race scorers. And just before the final whistle real hero in Turin this evening was Szczesny, who pulled out from the right upper corner free kick from Sergei Milinkovic-Savic of. More “eagles” were not capable, but is that worth such a risk from the head coach for Juventus?
In the next round Turin “Juventus” will play an away match against realskola “Udinese”, and to the Roman Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico will attend Sardinian “Catania”.
