Juventus added its first win of the season at home this Sunday, beating Sampdoria 3-2, in a match of the sixth round of Serie A in which the Turin team lost Argentine Paulo Dybala and Spanish Álvaro Morata through injury .
After adding the first victory of the season on Wednesday, with a 3-2 work at Spezia away from home, Massimiliano Allegri’s team suffered again to record their second consecutive win.
A victory decided by the goals of Dybala, Leonardo Bonucci, from a penalty, and Manuel Locatelli, but embittered by the injuries of “Joya” and Morata, both with muscle discomfort.
Dybala broke the equality in the 10th minute with a great left-footed shot from the edge of the area, but had to retire through tears in the 22nd due to injury.
Juventus widened the gap in the 43rd through Bonucci, but again paid for his defensive distractions this Sunday and the Japanese Maya Yoshida took advantage of it to cut 1-2 on the brink of halftime.
Locatelli, a pass from the Swede Dejan Kulusevski, seemed to be able to sentence the clash in 57 with his first goal with the Juventine shirt, although a naive failure by Colombian Juan Guillermo Cuadrado in 83 favored Antonio Candreva’s 2-3 that restored hope to the Sampdoria.
Shortly before, Morata had requested the change to Allegri when he noticed some discomfort in a thigh after trying a left leg shot that ended up deflected.
Juventus adds eight points and is eight from Milan, momentary leader awaiting the game of this Sunday in Naples.
The Turin team will now have to manage the situation of Dybala and Morata, with three days remaining until the appointment with Chelsea in the Champions League.
