Juventus vs Verona Full Match Reports
Juventus soared to the summit of the Serie A table with a dramatic last-minute winner against Hellas Verona at the Allianz Stadium. Andrea Cambiaso’s 97th-minute goal proved decisive in extending the Bianconeri’s unbeaten streak to five games, with four wins and one draw.
Having quietly made their way through the season, Juventus now finds themselves in close proximity to league leaders Inter Milan, trailing by just two points. The Bianconeri began the match on a strong note, with Dušan Vlahović coming close to opening the scoring. Shortly after, Moise Kean appeared to have found the back of the net with a superb individual effort. However, video replays showed an offside touch from Vlahović, disallowing the goal.
From that point onwards, the home side struggled to regain their rhythm as Verona grew into the game without creating clear-cut scoring opportunities. Vlahović had a chance to break the deadlock before halftime but could only direct his header over the bar, despite freeing himself from his marker in the box.
Historically, five of Juve’s seven home goals this season have come in the second half. As expected, the hosts increased their pressure right from the restart and once again believed they had taken the lead through Kean’s header in the 52nd minute. However, a VAR review determined a foul by Kean at the beginning of the attacking move, disallowing the goal. Kean’s frustrations grew apparent as he received a booking for dissent and was subsequently substituted, leaving the field with visible anger.
Kean’s replacement, Federico Chiesa, nearly made an instant impact with a well-crafted curling strike, denied by Verona goalkeeper Lorenzo Montipò. Despite Juve’s relentless assault on Verona’s defense, the away side managed to repeatedly thwart their scoring attempts. Chiesa saw his shot cleared off the line by Verona captain Davide Faraoni, leaving the hosts frustrated.
After a relentless barrage of chances, Juventus finally broke Verona’s resilience with their 30th attempt on goal. In the 97th minute, Cambiaso capitalized on a goalmouth scramble, poking home his first-ever goal for the club. The result propelled the Bianconeri to the top of the Serie A table, ahead of Inter Milan and AC Milan’s matches on Sunday. Meanwhile, Verona remains just two points above the relegation zone.
Man of the Match: Manuel Locatelli (Juventus).
