No one was playing for Juventus-Roma, however the ‘giallorossi’ had the pleasure of beating the champion, who received a new ‘Scudetto’ yesterday, the ninth in a row. The Romans, commanded by the most spectacular version of Zaniolo, clearly prevailed over the Turin team, who reserved Cristiano Ronaldo already thinking about his mission to overcome Olympique de Lyon in the knockout stages.
Maurizio Sarri decided to reserve Cristiano, Dyabala, and Pjanic, among others, for the Champions League game, something that at the beginning did not seem to affect too much as he went ahead on the scoreboard after five minutes of play.
Higuaín took a corner kick to put Juve ahead, but Roma reacted before the half hour of play in another corner kick. Kalinic equalized and before the break Perotti, from the penalty spot, certified Roma’s intentions by turning the score around.
The second half began with Zaniolo demonstrating that he is in top shape after recovering from his serious knee injury. The Romanista youth squad started with power, broke in the middle and gave Perotti a sweet ball for 1-3.
From there, the meeting seemed more like a match between singles and married, since both Sarri and Fonseca decided to introduce numerous changes so as not to harm their aspirations in the Champions, the former, and the Europa League, the latter.
