Needing, then, to reverse the deficit, Lazio went on the attack and, after 11 minutes, in a corner taken in the area, Taty Castellanos rose higher than Alex Sandro and headed into the net.

Juve went on the attack to reduce their risks and, at 23, after a good collective plot, Chiesa crossed low for Dusan Vlahovic, who finished in the small area, but stopped at Christos Mandas.

In the final minutes of the first half, Castellanos almost scored a second when he came in front of Mattia Perin, but the Italian goalkeeper made the save.

Luckily, on the way back to the second half, just after 3 minutes, the same Castellanos appeared freely in the area to touch the goalkeeper and level the aggregate.

Almost immediately, in a counterattack, the number 19 had the chance to turn the score around and score his hat-trick, once again being free in front of Perin. When it came time to finish, however, his shot was too weak.

Juventus wanted to avoid prolonging the match and went in search of their goal. Everything was heading towards no more movement on the scoreboard.
