Salernitana-Juventus 1-2: Iling-Junior and Vlahovic, comeback and Juventus victory

Salernitana-Juventus, a match valid for the 19th matchday of Serie A, ended 1-2 at Arechi. The goals from Iling-Junior and Vlahovic were decisive, as they put the Campania team back together, leading with Maggiore in the first half. The Campania team fought, prepared the match well, took the lead with the former Spezia midfielder and even resisted after the goal scorer’s expulsion. Juventus pushed and also thanks to the substitutions they overturned everything in the final. First Iling-Junior with the left foot, followed by Vlahovic with a header at the start of injury time. A 2-1 which allows Allegri’s team to finish the first round two points behind Inter. Campani instead last, but if the spirit is that of today, fighting for salvation and staying in Serie A will be concrete and possible.

The news in 8 key moments

4′ – SAMBIA! Salernitana occasion. Cross from the left, controls the far post and shoots the 33. Saves in a diving catch SZCZESNY.

39′ – MAJOR! GOAL! 1-0 SALERNITANA. Great goal! Kostic does not follow Sambia on the left, support for Tchaouna, who works for MAGGIORE. Left foot placed from the edge that beats Szczesny.

49′ – VERY CHANCE JUVENTUS. Yildiz for Rabiot, perfect cross for MCKENNIE’s header (all alone). The American puts it out. Big chance wasted.

61′ – JUVENTUS OPPORTUNITY. MCKENNIE serves VLAHOVIC, who turns well in the area. Left that goes just over. Maybe deviated from Bronn slightly.

65′ – ILING-JUNIOR. GOAL! 1-1 Juventus. Milik for Weah, what a cross, Vlahovic peels the ball, the ball reaches Iling, who with his left foot unloads under the crossbar.

66′ – BRADARIC COMMITS SZCZESNY! Great shot from the left-handed player served by Sambia, nice flight from the Pole.

70′ – SALERNITA OPPORTUNITY. Cross from Candreva, ball to the far post for SIMY, who, scared by SZCZESNY, is unable to score.

90’+1′ – GOAL! VLAHOVIC! 2-1 Juventus. Great recovery by DANILO, who flies and crosses to the right. Perfect break from Vlahovic and Costil beaten.

Dusan VLAHOVIC – His was a fairly colorless performance, the photograph of which was probably in the equalizer: by kicking the ball, he had in fact done the best thing in his match. But then, in full recovery, as in Frosinone, he goes up to the fifth floor and changes history. Because that’s how it works for attackers: the goal makes all the difference in the world.


PROMOTED: Iling-Junior. His entrance gives a shock and leads to a decisive goal for the comeback.

FAIL: Kostic. Colorless performance, those who chose it will not find a great rating.

The statistics

Juventus is the team that has won the most points in the last 7 championship matches (17).
