On the occasion of the fourth day of Serie A, Juventus traveled to Crotone. Andrea Pirlo’s men who impressed before the break with their brilliant success against Napoli (3-0) wanted to continue during this trip to the red lantern. Deprived of Cristiano Ronaldo positive for Covid-19, the Old Lady aligned a 4-3-3 with the trio Portanova, Morata, Kulusevski in tip. The Italian champion was trapped just before the quarter of an hour of play. Bonucci committed the irreparable in the box on Reca. The referee logically indicated the penalty spot. Nwankwo did not shake and opened the scoring (1-0, 12th).
Nine minutes later, Chiesa on the right distilled a very good cross for Morata who catapulted the ball into the net (1-1, 21st). Things got tough for Juve who prematurely lost Chiesa expelled (60th). In the last quarter of an hour, Morata, well served by Cuadrado, thought to score a double but the VAR decided otherwise (76th). With this second draw of the season, Juventus temporarily climbed on the Serie A podium and was four lengths behind AC Milan.
