Defending champion Juventus concede 2-0 lead to lose 2-4 to AC Milan at San Siro. After Lazio, Milan beat Serie A leader Juventus to
Juventus are currently leading the table, with Lazio and Inter Milan trailing. But Milan jumped two places over Napoli and Roma to fifth place. These three teams will fight for UEFA Europa Cup competitions.
Juventus could not have service of Paulo Dybala and Ligt against Milan, whereas Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored from the second match in a row after coming back after lockdown.
A tight first half finished scoreless after Zlatan Ibrahimovic had a goal ruled out for offside shortly before the break.
Rabiot scored the first goal, after receiving the ball in Juventus half, he almost dragged it to Milan box, before firing it from 20 yards. Cristiano Ronaldo gave Juventus 2-0 lead, from a Juan Cuadrado pass to score his 26th goal of the season.
When Juventus looked set to coast to victory, a VAR review spotted a handball from Leonardo Bonucci inside the area. AC Milan came back into the match when Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored from the spot. Ibrahimovic further assisted for Kessié goal to level the game at 2-2.
Da Conceição Leão scored the third when Referee allowed play after Rebic was grabbed at Juventus half. Later Rebic himself sealed the fate of the match with another goal.
Maurizio Sarri insists Juventus should not even try to analyse their ‘blackout’ against Milan because they were ‘world-class and in total control for 60 minutes.’
“I think our first 60 minutes were world-class. We were in total control and had this blackout. There’s not even much use thinking too much about it, because we have another game in three days,” Sarri told DAZN.
“We had a total blackout for 15 minutes. It has happened to other teams in this period. We have to take the positives from the game, which are that we were in total control for an hour.
“It’s usually not even possible to find the reasons for these inexplicable blackouts.”
