Held in check by AC Milan, Juventus are still waiting for their first victory


After a very average start to the season (a draw, two defeats), Juventus had no choice but to win against AC Milan for this 4th day of Serie A. Despite a rather consistent performance, the men of Massimiliano Allegri conceded the equalizer in the last quarter of an hour (1-1) and still have not won in the Championship. They are in 18th place in the standings.

Everything had started well for Juventus. On a Milan corner, the teammates of Adrien Rabiot, holder this Sunday evening, were quickly projected against. Two passes were enough to see Alvaro Morata starting from midfielder challenge Mike Maignan. The Spanish striker, pursued by Théo Hernandez, had not trembled to adjust the French goalkeeper with a very nice dive (1-0, 4th). What perfectly launch the match of his team.

The first period will even have been largely in favor of the Bianconeri. Defensively, the men of Massimiliano Allegri produced a very pleasant football with players who did not hesitate to do more like Leonardo Bonucci who often threw himself with the ball or Alex Sandro who has constantly offered solutions in his left lane.

Positioned behind Morata, Paulo Dybala was very visible. He touched a lot of balls and regaled his partners with silky left-footed passes and smart moves. And he was not the only one to show himself to his advantage this evening. Adrien Rabiot has often played fair. In a position similar to that which he has in the France team, he filled a lot of spaces while bringing on the offensive phases.

Rebic found the loophole

For its part, AC Milan seemed totally unrecognizable and disorganized in defense. The strong men of the Milanese midfielder Franck Kessié and Sandro Tonali were experiencing great difficulties against the pressing of Juventus. This was directly felt on the offensive animation.

But little by little, Juventus decreased in intensity unlike Milan who began to gain strength, to combine better. On one of their rare corners, the Rossoneri found the fault. Ante Rebic deceived Szczsny with a beautiful header (76th), his second goal of the season. AC Milan could even have taken the lead if the attackers had been more precise in front of goal. With this draw, AC Milan takes second place in the standings. Juventus goes on to a fourth game without a win in the Championship.
