Spoils Shared at the Artemio Franchi

Mattia Perin saved by goalkeeper Mattia Perin Bianconeri Where he responded a penalty kick from Luka Jovic in a match that lasted only 45 minutes.

There wasn’t much to report in the second part of the game as both sides significantly slowed down the tempo, suggesting that playing a Serie A game at 3:00pm in the middle of one of the hottest summers ever wasn’t the smartest decision. .

Juventus now risk seeing a gap from the top of the table widening to four points if Atalanta and Roma win their weekly domestic matches. Fiorentina remain stuck in the middle of the table with six points from five matches.

In light of the upcoming Champions League debut against Paris Saint-Germain, Massimiliano Allegri left Dusan Vlahovic on the bench. The coach formulated his team in a 4-3-3 manner, with central striker Milk receiving support from Juan Cuadrado and Angel Di Maria on the wings. Arrival at the last minute, Leandro Paredes made his debut as a key player in the midfield.

Mattia Perin replaces Wojciech Szczesny between the sticks as the Polish guardian was injured against Spezia last Wednesday.

On the other hand, Vincenzo Italiano chose a 4-3-3 method that featured Ricardo Sutil, Luka Jovic and Christian Kwame ahead.

Juventus put their heads in front just nine minutes into the match. Cuadrado displayed the ball from the right flank and found Philip Kostik’s shot which turned into an unexpected pass for Milek. Pole was quick to pounce on the ball and push it past Pietro Terracciano with his chest to open the scoring.

Fiorentina had the advantage of not losing his composure and started building his game of wings with Kwame and Sutil. However, the equalizer eventually came over the counter as Sottil recovered the ball from a corner kick for Juventus and fired his mound along the field. The Ivorian ended his lead with a medical conclusion with the right foot that left Beren no chance.

The first half ended with excitement as referee Daniele Doveri was suddenly called by the VAR, who picked Paredes’ handball in the penalty area from Sutil’s cross. Technology review awarded penalty to viola But Perrin’s response to Jovic’s attempt to convert was brilliant and resulted in the ball diverting to the post.

The match was played at a high pace and provided a lot of entertainment to the Artemio Franchi audience. Di Maria was one of the most beautiful things to watch every time he touched the ball, while right-back Dudu shone among the players viola Stripes with some classy touches to it.

However, things changed dramatically in the second half, which did very little for the show. Fiorentina increased the pressure and did something more than their opponents, but did not only threaten Perin again when Sofiane Amrabat hit a difficult right-footed shot at Perin with only a few minutes on the clock.

The goalkeeper’s response was brilliant again and he won the Man of the Match award by unanimous decision.

Massimiliano Allegri left more doubts than certainties before the curtain was raised in the Champions League. Di Maria still needed to regain his best form and lasted only 45 minutes as the coach had to replace him with Mattia de Sciglio in the first half.

Paredes also sustained a minor injury. Danilo was conservative when he finished the match on both legs despite also suffering an ankle injury. He had to stay on the field because his manager had already made five substitutions.
