The Juventus de Pirlo reacted in time to correct a bad game and take all three points against a brave Sassuolo That put him in a lot of trouble despite playing the whole second half with one less man. Ramsey, eight minutes to go, scored 2-1 to take a victory marred by injuries to McKennie and of Dybala, who had to retire before the break.
The duel in Turin started at full speed, with Juventus and Sassuolo verticalizing at the slightest opportunity to generate scoring chances. Only the success of the defenses, which little by little made their way into the game, and the poor aim of the forwards prevented goals from being seen in the opening bars.
The hyperactive McKennie He appeared from the second line while Cristiano, with freedom of movement, swept the entire front line. The Portuguese had it with a header that went high (8 ‘) and shortly after Fabrotta could not get a good assist from heel of McKennie (10 ‘). The American had to withdraw due to discomfort in the middle of the first half and the mishap left Juve cold, who did not put the batteries until the final section of the first half.
Down from McKennie also joined Dybala, who requested the change due to knee problems at the edge of the break. He Sassuolo, who was comfortable, stayed with one less man for the expulsion of Obiang.
