Turin, Italy /
Despite the attempts of Chiesa and Cristiano, the Juventus could not before the squad of Torino and drew 2-2 on matchday 29 of the A league and, for the moment, close to leaving the qualifying zone for the Champions League.
And that could be even worse for Juventus, who rescued a point thanks to a goal from the Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo with nine minutes remaining against a Torino who did merit to take the victory.
Juventus was the first to go ahead, thanks to a goal from Federico Chiesa, but Torino, fighting for salvation, competed with great commitment and turned the scoreboard with a double of Sanabria.
The Paraguayan forward took advantage of a bad rejection of the Polish goal Wojciech Szczesny to sign the 1-1 header and did not forgive a serious defensive pass missed by the Swede Dejan Kulusevski 17 seconds after the restart to complete the comeback.
He has already scored four goals in the five matches played with the Torino “granata” shirt, in addition to having offered an assist.
Juventus paid the psychological blow of 1-1, but at the most complicated moment it appeared Cristiano, with his twenty-fourth target of the league course, to score 2-2.
The last minutes were of high emotional intensity, with the Uruguayan Rodrigo Bentancur that shook a post and Sanabria that touched the triplet with a great header stopped by Szczesny.
Juventus continues to fall, which is about to say goodbye to the league title, already close to Inter, and who was left out of the Champions League positions, with four days left for the classic with Napoli.
The situation is not going better at the extra-sports level, after Pirlo left Argentine Paulo Dybala, Brazilian Arthur Melo and American Weston McKennie out of the list for the derby, punished for organizing a night dinner and violating anti-coronavirus rules.
