For Dybala and Bernardeschi two spectacular goals, a goal by Morata closes
The negotiations for the renewal of Dybala continue, but Joya has already signed her. On the pitch, scoring and enchanting against Atalanta in his seasonal debut, and in the heart of the 11,000 Juventus fans who yesterday honored him at the Stadium in this reopening to the public after a year and a half.
In the first time behind closed doors (March 2020) he had decided the Derby d’Italia against Conte’s Inter, effectively sealing the Scudetto of Sarri’s Juve, while yesterday was a rediscovered party as well as a test passed for the bianconeri with a convincing 3-1 in this tricolor appetizer. From one Nerazzurri to another, Dybala has seen everything and now Juve is back in this new cheerful formula where imagination and quality mix relentlessly.
Waiting for Ronaldo’s goals and numbers, yesterday CR7 appeared still running in and at the minimum wage, the Argentine ten thinks to do everything: from the center forward to the finisher, passing through the added midfielder. A true captain who wants to be the permanent center of gravity of this team and also a ten-year flag, since he will soon extend the contract until 2025 (yesterday there was a new meeting between his agent and the managers: the agreement is close).
There is Joya in this Juve, while Allegri’s experiments continue. All the more reason in a midfield awaiting the signing of Locatelli, after Ferragosto an attempt will be made to close the telenovela, but yesterday for an hour the Livorno coach deployed the owners’ Juve with a 4-3-3 that often turned into 4-4-2 thanks to the movements of the jolly Bernardeschi. The former viola looks like another one after the Europeans: not only for this role as a midfielder and left winger, but for the newfound confidence that helped him find the winning goal with a ballistic prowess. Allegri, at his home vernissage after two years, will have appreciated, while the trident Chiesa-Dybala-Ronaldo immediately gave a show, packaging the advantage after 8 minutes with a quick counter-attack launched by CR7, sublimated by the blue and finished by the Argentine.
Behind the great beauty of the Juventus attack, however, there was the vulnerability of a defense that continues to score goals (4 out of 4 in summer friendlies) and yesterday was often at the mercy of Gasperini’s men. Ramsey struggled a lot in the role of director, as chasms often opened up in the middle of the area. The crossbar chipped by Gosens in the 5 ‘was an unheard warning, but after the rescue of De Ligt on Pessina (15’) the equalizer reached with the penalty converted by Muriel for a foul by Bonucci on Freuler.
Atalanta went wild, playing from memory and touching overtaking several times: at 19 ‘Zczesny overtook Muriel and Ilicic missed the tap-in, while at 34’ the Colombian shot to the stars after the heel assist in the area of Pessina and a minute later the Polish goalkeeper neutralized Ilicic’s shot. There was no pause in this challenge played openly despite the 32 ° night, but before the interval Bernardeschi thought about guessing the eurogol with a left from the edge that struck Musso. The second half gave less emotions, but Juve maintained the attacking attitude even after the many changes and right in full recovery they found the 3-1 with Morata on an assist from Kulusevski. –
