(EFE) – A double by Paraguayan Tonny Sanabria gave Torino a 2-2 draw this Saturday in the derby against Juventus and prolonged the fall of the Bianconero team, which was momentarily left out of the Champions League positions in Serie A.
And that could be even worse for Juventus, who rescued a point thanks to a goal from the Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo with nine minutes to go against a Torino who did merit to take the victory.
Juve was the first to go ahead, thanks to a goal from Federico Chiesa, but Torino, fighting for salvation, competed with great commitment and turned the score around with a double from the former Real Betis Sanabria player.
The Paraguayan striker took advantage of a poor rejection by Polish goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny to sign the 1-1 header and did not forgive a serious defensive pass missed by Swede Dejan Kulusevski 17 seconds after the restart to complete the comeback.
He has already scored four goals in the five matches played with the Torino “granata” shirt, in addition to having offered an assist.
Juventus paid the psychological blow of 1-1, but at the most difficult moment Cristiano appeared, with his twenty-fourth conquest in Serie A, to score 2-2.
The last minutes were of high emotional intensity, with the Uruguayan Rodrigo Bentancur who shook the stick and Sanabria who brushed the triplet with a great header covered by Szczesny.
Juve continues to fall, which is about to say goodbye to the title, already close to Inter, and who was left out of the Champions League positions with four days left for the classic with Napoli.
The situation is not going better for him at the extra-sports level, after Pirlo left out of the list for the classic the Argentine Paulo Dybala, the Brazilian Arthur Melo and the American Weston McKennie, punished for organizing a night dinner and violating the protocols against the coronavirus .
