Lazio salvages a point against Juventus in Serie A

The 37th day of Serie A concluded with a match between Juventus and Lazio this evening. A famous match for the Bianconeri, who have no games remaining.

Juventus vs Lazio


With a guaranteed spot in the next Champions League, the Old Lady can no longer finish

higher than third in the standings or be caught by her first pursuer. Lazio, on the other side,

were going all out. The Celeste was two points clear of AS Roma in fifth place. In the case of

success tonight, Maurizio Sarri’s side will have sealed their place in the next Europa League.

A loss, on the other hand, still put them in danger from the Giallorossi. Unfortunately for

them, this predicament developed swiftly.

Furthermore Dusan Vlahovic discovered the flaw in the tenth minute, and Alvaro Morata scored the game-winning goal in the 36th minute. But it will be Giorgio Chiellini’s departure in the 17th minute that will define this opening session. The Italian defender, who was replaced by

Matthijs De Ligt, played his final match at Juventus Stadium.

Certainly, Patric added some spice to the contest by decreasing the score in the 50th minute of the second session. Paulo Dybala also gave a great performance in his final appearance in the Piedmont lair, but Milinkovic-Savic spoilt the party just as we were about to win in Turin. After extra time, the Serb allowed his team to equalize from a corner (2-2). Lazio now leads Roma by three points and has a stronger goal differential (+19 against +13). The Celestes will finish the season in fifth place unless they have a miraculous comeback.

Lazio equalized in the 90th minute with Savic, following a swift counter-attack by the Eagles to reach Pasic, who fired a ground shot that goalie Perin saved, and Savic followed up with a shot into the net.
