Vlahovic keeps Bianconeri in Scudetto hunt!!

The Bianconeri are now just five points behind leaders Milan – despite having played a game more – after victory in Sardinia.

Massimiliano Allegri has consistently rebuffed talk of Juve joining an enthralling three-way title race,

but the Bianconeri are now just five points behind Milan

– despite having played a game more – after victory in Sardinia.

With a 2-1 Serie A win over Cagliari, Juventus solidified their hold on a top-four berth and kept their Scudetto ambitions alive.

When Joao Pedro handed Cagliari a surprising early lead and Luca Pellegrini’s goal was controversially disallowed,

Allegri’s men were in danger of losing.

Juve, on the other hand, managed to turn things around with to Matthijs de Ligt’s equaliser and Dusan Vlahovic’s 75th-minute winner.

Relegation-threatened Cagliari had lost their previous four league games,

but Joao Pedro’s spectacular shot gave them the lead in the 10th minute.

Razvan Marin, who sprinted down the right flank and handed the ball off for Joao Pedro to guide into the top-left corner,

dispossessed Paulo Dybala in midfield.

When Pellegrini’s left-footed drive deflected past Alessio Cragno,

Juve appeared to have equalised, but the goal was ruled out for handball by the VAR,

with the ball contacting Adrien Rabiot’s elbow on its way in.

The Bianconeri, on the other hand, continued to pepper the Cagliari goal,

and their reward arrived on the stroke of half-time.

Watch the awesome winning goals of Juventus today!!

A long-range shot by Juan Cuadrado was saved,

but the same player provided a clever cross following the corner, which De Ligt met with a header into the bottom-left corner.

Soon after the restart,

Giorgio Chiellini had a goal disallowed for offside, and Dybala fired over on the half-volley before teeing up Cuadrado, who shot well wide of the far post.

What’s next?

Juve take on Bologna in Turin next Saturday, when Cagliari play host to Sassuolo.
