Big stop for Juventus, trapped at home by a team of Sassuolo who made the difference at the last minute on a goal from Maxime Lopez (1-2).
End of series for the Juventus. While they remained on nine matches without defeat, their last misstep dating back to September 11 against Naples, the Turinese relapsed Wednesday night during the 10e Serie A matchday. An embarrassing defeat at home against Sassuolo (1-2), a less well ranked team, which stops the Bianconeri in their climb in the standings.
To integrate the Top 5, the men of Massimiliano Allegri will come back, therefore. Dominant but sterile, Juve got trapped for the first time just before the break on a goal from Davide Frattesi, served by Grégoire Defrel (0-1, 44e). Weston McKennie, on a free kick from Paulo Dybala, then thought he had saved the essentials by equalizing with a devastating header (1-1, 76e).
But the Old Lady finally lost her balance after extra time, on a counter assassin concluded from a subtle sting by Maxime Lopez (1-2, 90e+5). The former Marseillais thus offers Sassuolo the first victory in his history on the lawn of Juve and allows him to return to a length of his opponent of the evening. Who, him, remains clinging to the seventh place.
