(ANSA) – TURIN, 31 JUL – Juventus falls against Real Madrid, the tour in the States ends with a defeat. The bianconeri lose 2-0: Benzema (on a penalty) and Asensio score one goal in each half and condemn Massimiliano Allegri’s boys in front of over 93 thousand spectators, a record for a football match in Los Angeles. “We did a good job in the United States, but we can still grow a lot” was the message sent by the coach before returning to Italy.
Against Real, however, his team did not shine: only a cross from Bonucci on a free kick at the opening of the game, then a lot of suffering in the face of the game plots of Ancelotti’s Blancos. Vlahovic’s debut didn’t make a difference and Perin’s three rescues at the start of the second half were not enough.
“Now we rest for a couple of days, then we go back to work, the championship is approaching” Allegri concluded after the match. And he also hopes to recover some pieces in view of the next engagements: Szczesny was out for an adductor problem and will need to be evaluated, McKennie will do instrumental tests to understand the condition of his left shoulder: a dislocation during training that has also deleted from the bench.
