Paulo Dybala and his teammates drew 1-1 against Torino in the early match of round 26 of Serie A on the morning of February 19 (Hanoi time).
Matthijs de Ligt opened the scoring early for Juventus in the 13th minute, but Andrea Belotti helped Torino leave with an equalizer in the 62nd minute. Juventus could not close the gap with the top 3 when they were 6 points behind Napoli.
Playing away from home, but Torino entered the game better. They soon had two remarkable situations on the left wing of Rolando Mandragora after 6 minutes and Josip Brekalo after 9 minutes. However, goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny focused on making a save.
In the 11th minute, Juventus had the first response after a quick counterattack. Adrien Rabiot shot from the corner but narrowly missed the goal. However, the home team did not have to regret for too long when De Ligt opened the scoring.
From the left corner of Juan Cuadrado, De Ligt chooses a precise header from a tight corner to hit the net of Torino. This is the second goal of the 22-year-old Dutch midfielder after 21 appearances in Serie A this season.
The early goal helped Juventus confidently deploy the attack. Without the excellence of goalkeeper Savic, Torino would have conceded a second goal after Dybala’s situation in the 23rd minute.
The first half belonged to Juventus with situations surrounding the goal, but the game reversed in the second half. In the 50th minute, Mandragora made a flick of the outside of his left foot into the top corner of the goal but could not win against the opponent’s goalkeeper.
In the 62nd minute, Juventus’ net had to vibrate. Brekalo tried to dribble on the left wing, before passing in to let Belotti volley close in to score. Sandro and Sciglio made a mistake when giving Belotti too much space.
The home team tried to regain the lead but failed. They launched up to 7 shots in the second half but did not hit the target. Juventus accepted a 1-1 draw against Turin. This is the second consecutive draw of Allegri’s teachers and students in Serie A this season.
