Juventus avenged the league defeat they suffered on Saturday against Lazio and, pending the second leg on April 23, a 2-0 scoreline put them with one foot in the Coppa Italia final. Tomorrow is the first round of the other semi-final between Fiorentina and Atalanta at Artemio Franchi.

Igor Tudor, on his Lazio debut after coming on in relief Maurizio Sarri the questioner won the game Massimiliano Allegri with a goal in extremis (1-0) and his team completely dominated the first half today by taking control of the ball, one of the hallmarks of the Croatian coach.

Controversial offside penalty disallowed

However, that dominance came after a controversial game in which the referee Matías Vecino first gave a penalty to Dusan Vlahovic which, after consulting the VAR, was overruled due to the previous offside of Andrea Cambiaso.

Luis Alberto entered the squad

After this threat, Lazio took the game against an opponent who had no idea and, in addition to overspending some unsuccessful shots, they had a good chance when Luis Alberto saw, the benchmark of their game , how his lofted header went into the top corner. goalkeeper Mattia Perin (40′). The Andalusian played his 300th game today with the Roman team.

The first shot between the sticks for Juventus came in the 45th minute with a shot from Vlahovic which was unsurprising. Christos Mandas, relief of the injured Ivan Provedel.

Patric remained in the dugout and defensively declined

Patric and Mario Gila, the Spanish center-backsgot through this first half comfortably, but Tudor left Patric in the booth to carry Nicolo Casale And as soon as the second half started, the people of Turin did not forgive the first chance they had.

Chiesa and Vlahovic were convicted

Cambiaso put a good ball on the counter and Federico Chiesa, faced with Lazio’s defensive imbalance, stood up to Mandas and beat him out (50′). The Italian striker was once again on target as he has barely scored twice since the start of 2024.

As usually happens, Juve progressed undeservedly here and not only that, because they showed the highest effectiveness when Vlahovic, absent on Saturday due to suspension, received from Weston McKennie, tackled and cut Casale before crossing the ball into the net (64′). It was the Serbian’s 16th goal of the season.

Overcoming his defensive slump in the second half, Tudor tried to find the goal Luis Alberto and Ciro Immobile will retire giving entry to Daichi Kamada and Taty Castellanos since then Pedro Rodríguez is out after being sent off in the Coppa quarterfinals against Roma.

Relief in Juve’s league crisis
