Juventus continues to fight for the leadership of the Italian Championship. This Sunday (7/1), at the Arechi Stadium, in Salerno, they beat Salernitana, 2-1. But the game between one of the favorites for the title against the last placed team was far from easy. After all, Juve came from behind and only turned around in second-half stoppage time, when their rival had ten points. Maggiore scored a goal for the home team. But he was sent off in the final stage when the team was still winning and hurt the team, which led to the comeback with goals from Iling-Junior. Vlahovic scored the winning goal for the youth.

Juve is on 46 points, in second place, against 48 from leader Inter Milan. Salernitana is not leaving the bottom spot. Only 12 points.

Interestingly, the teams faced each other this past week. However, the result was not tight. Juventus won 6-1, but in this case, in a game last Thursday in a match valid for the Italian Cup.

Juventus returns to the field against Frosinone, next Thursday (11), at 5pm (Brasília time), for the Italian Cup. Salernitana returns to the pitch on Saturday (13), at 11 am, for the Italian Championship.

Juventus only turned it around in the 2nd half

Juventus was always closer to the goal. He had a scare after three minutes with a shot from Nwankwo. But after five minutes he was on top. However, goalkeeper Costil’s good saves frustrated his goalscoring intentions. And, at 39, the blow was greater. A good move by Salernitana ended with Maggiore finishing from outside the area and making it 1-0.

In the second half, at eight minutes, Maggiore made a foul. As he had yellow, he was sent off. Thus, with one more, Juve became more involved in attack. And he got the equalizer at 20, when Iling Jr completed Weah’s play on the right and Vlahovic got a pass. The goal made Juve increase the pressure even more. But the turning goal only came in stoppage time, at 46. When Danilo recovered the ball, he went deep on the right and crossed to Vlahovic’s head.
