Juve-Bologna 1-1, Vlahovic saves Allegri in extremis

The bianconeri avoid the ko in the 95th minute

Juventus drew 1-1 in extremis against Bologna in the match valid for the 33rd matchday of Serie A. Allegri’s team rises to 63 points and risks finding the other contenders closer to fourth place. Bologna, at 38, has nothing more to ask from the league. Without pressure, the Emilians play an orderly match, conceding little to Allegri’s ‘usual’ Juve seen so many times this year: slow pace, few movements and very few opportunities for the hosts in the first half. The match lights up in the second half, thanks to the excellent start of the guests. Arnautovic at 52 ‘slips between the shirts of the Juventus defense, avoids Szczesny and deposits the 0-1 ball on the net.

Juve wakes up from numbness with a reaction of nerves. Danilo hits the post with a header, Skorupski has to perform in a couple of saves. The race ignites in the final. Bologna remains in 9 in the 85th minute due to the expulsions of Soumaoro and Medel, the referee Sacchi after resorting to the Var does not grant a penalty to Morata for a foul that seems clearly in the area, in an action in which Cuadrado manages to hit the crossing of the empty goal posts. In the maxi recovery, Juve catches the same with Vlahovic, who with his head corrects Morata’s overhead: 1-1.
