Europa League, Juve-Seville 1-1: Gatti equalized in the photo finish

The bianconeri avoid the knockout in the first leg of the semifinal

Juventus and Sevilla drew 1-1 in the first leg of the Europa League semi-final, played at the Allianz Stadium in Turin. The guests took the lead with En-Nesyri on 26′, Gatti responded on 97′. The return in 7 days in Spain.

THE MATCH – After a balanced start with the two teams facing each other head on, Juve gets carried away and when they try to attack high, they leave the side uncovered. The guest formation thanks and takes advantage of it.

Ocampos gallops while Bonucci chases him at a slow trot. Behind the whole defense is in bad shape, Gil cuts and effectively leaves the ball between En-Nesyri’s feet. The Moroccan does not hesitate and scores the opening goal. Sevilla takes the game in hand and Vlahovic, served little and badly, also has time to devour a sensational goal opportunity.

At the interval, Allegri could do nothing but revolutionize Juventus. Outside Kostic and Miretti, not among the worst, inside Chiesa and Iling. The Englishman seems to be the man of the moment, so much so that the Juventus team has a different face. The balls all gravitate towards him, but the Juventus area continues to be empty. Vlahovic doesn’t turn, nervous, imprecise and then even furious, at the time of the substitution in the 61st minute: Milik in, but the Serbian doesn’t like it. Sevilla administers, while in the meantime Allegri loses Bonucci due to injury and puts Gatti on.

Sevilla play badly, but hold on. Acuna makes a big round and Gudelj also behind in defense. Up front En-Nesyri alone keeps the whole Juventus defense anxious. When everything seems over, an incredible finale arrives at the Stadium, where the 96th minute hit when Juve earned a corner. The referee clearly indicates that he will let him kick, and so Gatti asks Chiesa to wait for him to kick from the flag. The former Fiorentina kicks in the middle, Pogba’s header for Gatti who launches ahead of everyone and scores: 1-1 and the curtain.
