Venezia vs.  Juventus - Game Report - December 11, 2021

(EFE) – Juventus continued this Saturday with the dynamic of ups and downs that characterized its season and did not go beyond 1-1 in the field of the recently promoted Venezia, despite going ahead with a goal from the Spanish Álvaro Morata, on the seventeenth day of Serie A.

Three days after advancing to the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League as group winners, Massimiliano Allegri’s side suffered a serious league setback, which may leave them even further away from the noble zone of the table. And if it was not enough, he lost the injured Argentine Paulo Dybala at twelve minutes.

Juventus, sixth-placed, can stay nine points behind the Champions League places if Atalanta beat Hellas Verona this Sunday, and fourteen from the leadership, if Milan beat Udinese this Saturday.

And that, after Dybala’s muscle injury, Morata put Juventus ahead with a good shot after a cross from Luca Pellegrini, but Venezia competed with courage and salvaged a point thanks to a goal from Mattia Aramu ten minutes into the second half.

Allegri gave way to 18-year-old Argentine Matías Soulé in an attempt to strengthen the lead and the last opportunities came in the boy from Mar del Plata, who launched a direct free kick that ran into the barrier, and a left-footed shot sent high.

Too little to get away with Venezia points, in the one that the Argentine goal Sergio Romero shielded the tie with a good save in the last minute after a center hung by the Colombian Juan Guillermo Cuadrado.
