Juventus-Verona 1-0, a goal from Kean decides The record

It’s not a spectacular Juve, but it’s a winner and that’s what Allegri is interested in: the bianconeri beat Verona just like in the first leg, 1-0 and with goals from Kean. The climb continues, the Champions area is at four points waiting for Sunday in Serie A. From Di Maria-Vlahovic to Milik-Kean, Allegri chooses the tandem of supporting actors: the Pole returns two months after the injury, the class of 2000 sees himself again after the two-match disqualification, they are the ones who try to hurt Verona. The other Serbian, Kostic, also starts on the bench, with the Cuadrado-De Sciglio couple on the outside and with Barrenechea preferred to Miretti to complete the halfback together with Fagioli and Locatelli. The coach gives Gatti another chance, in the third in a row between the championship and the Europa League, with the former Frosinone player playing alongside Danilo and Bremer. Zaffaroni, on the other hand, chooses Gaich alongside Lasagna: the Argentine was the hero of Benevento who conquered the Stadium in March 2021. The first ring of the match is from Duda, who in the heart of the area kicks too centrally after just two minutes.

Zaffaroni’s team shows personality and plays decidedly better than Juve, in the quarter of an hour the second chance is for Depaoli who touches the post to the left of Szczesny. The black and whites still don’t shake, the Stadium lights up towards the middle of the first half: Alessandro Del Piero is framed on the maxi-screens, the former captain reciprocates with choruses and applause visibly excited. Verona trembled in the 37th minute, Danilo’s free-kick from the edge of the area was deflected against the top corner by Depaoli’s back. It’s the only ring in the first 45 minutes, Allegri’s team returns to the locker room with some grumbling coming from the stands. Barrenechea immediately gives way to Miretti, Juve raises the center of gravity and becomes more dangerous, finding the advantage at the start of the second half: Locatelli slots in for Kean, the attacker makes no mistake in front of Montipò and makes it 1-0. Allegri chooses to revolutionize the advanced department and, after inserting Vlahovic and Di Maria, also launches Kostic for Cuadrado. Zaffaroni also makes three moves and throws Cabal, Verdi and Doig into the fray, but it is Lasagna who is stopped at the climax by Szczesny with a low exit. And it was again the Polish goalkeeper who had to outdo himself on substitute Terracciano’s left-handed in the final. Bremer devours the double from just a few paces away, Allegri returns to the locker room in a fury a few seconds to spare but Juve gnaws at another three points from Inter and moves within six points of the Nerazzurri. And on Tuesday there will be the derby d’Italia at the Stadium for the semi-final first leg of the Coppa Italia.
