That concludes our commentary of the Serie A fixture between Juventus and Hellas Verona! We hope you’ve enjoyed it!
Juventus are back in action on Tuesday when they play Inter in the Coppa Italia, ahead of a Serie A match against Lazio in a week. Hellas Verona have seven days off before hosting Sassuolo in their next fixture.
Juventus claim victory in another tight fixture, making it back-to-back 1-0 wins as they edge out Hellas Verona by a single goal. Verona were the better side in the first half, but the hosts settled down in the second and took the lead just 10 minutes after the restart, with Miretti starting a sweeping move that was finished by Kean from close range. The visitors rarely troubled after going behind despite a number of changes following the hour, with Szczesny’s diving stop on Terracciano with less than 10 minutes to go the closest they came to an equaliser. It’s a fourth clean sheet in five games in all competitions for Allegri’s side, who go three points behind Roma in sixth. Verona stay 18th with the defeat.
90' + 5' Verona are the team that have earned the fewest points away from home in this Serie A (five in 13 matches), while on the other hand, only Napoli (34) have obtained more points than Juventus in home matches (33 in 14 games).
90' + 3' The fourth official indicates five minutes will be added to the end of the match for stoppages.
90' + 1' The ensuing corner-kick is punched away by Szczesny, who clears the danger before a Verona player could get a head to it.
90' Verdi's free-kick takes a deflection on it's way through, turning it behind for a corner.
89' Verdi cuts inside and trips over the outstretched leg of Miretti, winning his side a free-kick just outside the penalty area with a minute to go.
87' SOMEHOW IT STAYS OUT! Di Maria and Locatelli work a free-kick from 40 yards short, with the Argentina international taking a step inside before feathering a cross to the far post. Gatti meets the delivery with a stooping header across the face of goal for Bremer, who inexplicably turns it wide from two yards out!
85' Danilo hooks the ball long looking to wrap a cross around Dawidowicz for Di Maria but Montipo comes off his line to help his defence and get to the spot first.
83' FANTASTIC SAVE! Terracciano is given time and space to cut inside from the right before firing a dangerous shot towards goal that takes a tricky deflection. Szczesny sees the strike late but has just enough time to fling himself across his line and paw the ball away!
F. Terracciano
M. Faraoni
81' Verona make one final change, with Terracciano in for Faraoni.
80' With 10 minutes to go, Verona haven’t quite tested Szczesny enough, with the goalkeeper not forced into a save in the second half. Juventus are doing a good job keeping everything in front of them and packing central areas, forcing the visitors into deliveries from wide.
C. Ngonge
K. Lasagna
77' Zaffaroni makes a change at the top-end of the pitch, with Ngonge sent on for Lasagna.
77' Faraoni swings a dangerous cross into the penalty area but it’s put ahead of Gaich, who brings Gatti to the ground during his attempt to meet the ball with his head. It’s a free-kick for Juventus, with the whistle preventing Doig from regathering possession on the far side.
75' Juventus have kept a clean sheet in 16 league matches so far this season. In the last 40 years, only once have the Bianconeri recorded as many clean sheets after 27 league games in Serie A: in 2017/18 (18, also with Allegri at the helm).
73' Di Maria looks as though he’ll be able to continue, though he’s moving quite gingerly as he gets back to his feet. With a crucial game against Inter on Tuesday in the Coppa Italia, Allegri will be hoping he can shake it off.
71' Di Maria is down holding his leg following a challenge by Duda, which prevented the Argentina international from cutting inside. He’s only been on the pitch for 11 minutes and he’s already requiring intervention from the medical staff.
69' Gaich looks to turn Bremer before playing an acrobatic pass across the face of the 18-yard box for Lasagna but it's intercepted calmly by Gatti, who wins it back before striding forward looking to catch Verona on the break.
J. Doig
F. Depaoli
67' A straight swap at wing-back sees Doig make an appearance, with the booked Depaoli making way.
J. Cabal
F. Ceccherini
66' Zaffaroni changes things around at the back with Ceccherini replaced by Cabal.
S. Verdi
Miguel Veloso
66' The captain sees his number go up with 24 minutes remaining in the contest. Verdi is sent on in his stead.
F. Kostić
J. Cuadrado
66' A change at wing-back sees Kostic recalled to the bench for Kostic.
64' Lasagna looks to play Gaich through into the penalty area but Danilo and Bremer do well to shield the ball for Szczesny, who steps to the left edge of his penalty area to pick it up.
62' After winning the first match on November 10th, Juventus could win home and away against Verona in Serie A for the first time since 2017/18.
Á. Di María
A. Milik
60' Milik’s return to the pitch lasts an hour before he’s replaced by Di Maria.
D. Vlahović
M. Kean
60' Vlahovic comes on for the goal scorer, with Kean making way.
M. Kean
Yellow Card
59' Kean now enters the referee’s notebook with a yellow card after his off-balance stomp leaves Faraoni on the ground holding his foot in pain.
A. Gaich
Yellow Card
58' Bremer is forced back towards his own goal by Gaich, who leaps into a sliding challenge from behind the centre-back. It’s a yellow card for the Verona striker, the second booking of the game for the visitors.
57' The first real passing move of quality for the hosts leads to a goal, with Kean on the scoresheet for the first time since February 19. It’s all on Verona now to come forward and get themselves back in the game, a difficult task considering Juventus’ defensive record.
M. Locatelli
55' Locatelli's perfectly weighted ball is the assist for Juve's go-ahead goal!
M. Kean
55' JUVENTUS FIND THE BREAKTHROUGH! 1-0! Miretti plays a beautiful pass around the corner for Locatelli, who picks his head up and threads the ball through for Kean. The striker takes a touch to set himself and blasts it in the bottom corner from 10 yards out, leaving Montipo no chance!
54' Veloso works a short-corner routine with Tameze but the eventual cross into the penalty area takes a deflection, which takes the sting out of the ball and allows Szczesny to gather it comfortably.
52' Veloso swings a cross into the penalty area, where it’s met by Lasagna, who flicks it on to the back post. Faraoni is in a great position to test Szczesny but he’s unable to corral the lay-off; though his offside position would have made it meaningless in any case.
50' Kean battles with two defenders near the flag and thinks he’s won his side a corner after seemingly playing it off Faraoni but the linesman and referee agree and award Verona a goal-kick, with the striker taking the last touch.
48' Gatti hits a hopeful ball forward looking for the run of Kean but Dawidowicz beats the striker for pace and gets his head to the ball to prod it back to Montipo. The goalkeeper almost lets it go out for a corner but manages to keep it in at the last moment, ending the Juventus threat.
46' Juventus get the match restarted from the kick-off!
F. Miretti
E. Barrenechea
46' Miretti comes on for Barrenechea in a half-time change for Juventus.
Verona will need to freshen up their legs in the second half if they wish to continue to hold out against Juventus, with a point a decent result against the Bianconeri. Doig could be an option to replace Depaoli, while Verdi or Braaf should be introduced to replace the aging Veloso. The Bianconeri have a wealth of options to call upon from the bench to break the deadlock, with Kostic’s crossing ability and Di Maria’s experience a potential asset after the restart.
Juventus and Hellas Verona head into the interval at Allianz Stadium locked in a tight 0-0 duel, with both sides cancelling each other out in the first frame. The visitors started the better of the two sides, crafting two gilt-edged opportunities in the first quarter-hour, only to see Duda and Depaoli fail to beat Szczesny. The Bianconeri settled into the match somewhat from there, shading possession and passing statistics but failing to turn their share of the ball into dangerous opportunities - with the exception of Danilo’s side-footed free-kick which rattled the post. It’s been a tight and cagey affair with neither side able to consistently find space in the other’s formation; a situation that should persist into the second half.
F. Depaoli
Yellow Card
44' Depaoli’s reckless sliding challenge catches Locatelli and brings him down to the turf. It’s a yellow card for the Verona wing-back, the first booking of the game.
42' Cuadrado’s inswinging corner forces Montipo off his line but the goalkeeper misses his punch and leaves his net open as a result. Fortunately for him, no Juventus player is able to steer the ball goalwards as it rolls out of the penalty area on the other side.
40' A frustrated Locatelli runs through the back of Gaich before tripping over him, giving Hellas Verona a free-kick just inside Juventus’ half.
38' Cuadrado’s ensuing corner is swept to the near post but it’s cleared away on two separate occasions by Ceccherini, finally getting the job done at the second attempt.
37' OFF THE WOODWORK! Milik steps up and looks to wrap his left boot around the ball but he instead lays it off to Danilo, who quickly curls a dangerous strike that takes a deflection off the wall before smacking the post and going behind for a corner!
36' Fagioli plays a low pass into the feet of Milik on the edge of the 18-yard box, where he’s scythed down by Ceccherini. The Juventus players hold their breath in hopes of a penalty but the referee points to a spot just outside the area for a free-kick, just under 20 yards from goal.
34' Gaich puts a pass directly into the chest of Milik, sending Juventus on a fast-moving attack the other way. Cuadrado switches play to Barrenechea and expects a return but the young midfielder mishits his delivery and gifts Verona the ball inside their own 18-yard box.
32' Veloso cynically charges through the back of Milik in a fruitless attempt to win back the ball high up the pitch, giving Juventus a free-kick which they use to play short instead of clearing their lines.
30' Magnani goes long but it’s a wasted possession as the ball is given directly to Gatti, who brings it down just ahead of his own penalty area with a lovely touch. The Juventus defender has had more touches than anybody else in the opening half by some margin, with Verona comfortable to allow the centre-back to dictate play.
28' Danilo is operating almost as an auxiliary second wing-back, pushing deep into midfield to help facilitate the link between midfield and attack. It’s certainly helped the Bianconeri progress the ball down the right side but they’ve still not managed to create anything especially dangerous. Verona for their part will look to expose the gap left in behind by the Brazil international when coming forward on the counter.
26' Fagioli’s clever idea is met with lacklustre execution as his chip over the top of the defence and into the penalty area for Barrenechea is misplaced and sent behind immediately for a goal-kick.
24' Milik and Cuadrado stand over the free-kick but it’s the wing-back who tries his luck, narrowly missing the top corner as it whistles wide.
22' Danilo is chopped down by Faraoni, who gives Juventus a free-kick just over 25 yards from Montipo’s target.
20' Duda swings a corner-kick into the penalty area but he fails to beat the first man at the near post, with Locatelli able to lean into a comfortable clearing header.
18' Barrenechea makes an incisive run into the penalty area where he’s spotted by Cuadrado, who hoists a deep cross into the penalty area. It’s a good delivery from the Colombia international but Magnani and Montipo converge to ensure the goalkeeper wins the battle.
16' Fagioli feathers a cross into the penalty area looking for Milik but the striker fails to read the intentions of his team-mate, allowing the ball to roll comfortably to the foot of Montipo.
15' WHAT A CHANCE FOR VERONA! Faraoni takes up a position wide on the right wing, drawing De Sciglio towards him before playing a pass to the byline for Lasagna. The striker gets to the ball to keep it in play and pulls a dangerous cross back to the far post for Depaoli, who smashes his volley narrowly wide!
14' The Juventus defence are finding it difficult to pass out of the back, with Gatti often left on the ball without a forward option. Szczesny goes long in this instance looking to find the run of Milik directly but Ceccherini wins the header before drawing a free-kick.
12' Cuadrado’s corner is fired in towards the head of Bremer, who is unable to make clean contact with his header, sending it well wide of the target.
11' Kean attempts to slip through Depaoli and Dawidowicz, pulling the ball between the two defenders before ultimately losing his ground and winning a corner-kick for his efforts.
9' Both sides lining up with three-man defences should mean a stagnant and packed midfield - forcing play out to the wings. Faraoni is one of Verona’s more decisive players and could affect the game with his positioning, though De Sciglio is more comfortable operating in a defensive role and will look to counteract that threat.
7' Ceccherini gives it away to Danilo but the Brazil international’s progress is impeded 30 yards from Montipo’s goal, with Duda charging back to dispossess the defender in midfield.
5' Duda and Tameze work a short-corner routine which provides the former a different angle for a cross but the final ball is a poor one that’s easily cut out by the Juventus defence.
3' CHANCE! Gatti’s poor pass from inside his own penalty area allows Depaoli to win the ball back before centring a low cross to the penalty spot. Duda meets the pass with a swivelled first-time effort that’s sent directly into the arms of Szczesny!
1' Hellas Verona get the match underway from the kick-off!
Hellas Verona make five changes to the XI that lost 3-1 to Sampdoria just before the international break. Ceccherini takes over for the suspended Diego Coppola in defence, while Veloso is called into action for the injured Lazovic. Depaoli is preferred to Doig at wing-back and Zaffaroni rotates his strikers, giving Lasagna and Gaich the nod ahead of Milan Djuric and Braaf.
Juventus make four changes to the side that beat Inter 1-0 on March 19. Cuadrado comes in for Kostic at wing-back, while Barrenechea is selected to replace the suspended Adrien Rabiot in midfield. The final two alterations are in attack, where Vlahovic and Soule are dropped for Kean and Milik; who makes his awaited return from injury.
HELLAS VERONA SUBS: Cyril Ngonge, Filippo Terracciano, Oliver Abildgaard, Jayden Braaf, Juan Cabal, Simone Verdi, Yayah Kallon, Manuel Ravasio, Josh Doig, Simone Perilli.
HELLAS VERONA XI (3-4-1-2): Lorenzo Montipo; Pawel Dawidowicz, Giangiacomo Magnani, Federico Ceccherini; Marco Faraoni, Adrien Tameze, Miguel Veloso, Fabio Depaoli; Ondrej Duda; Kevin Lasagna, Adolfo Gaich.
JUVENTUS SUBS: Mattia Perin, Filip Kostic, Daniele Rugani, Dusan Vlahovic, Angel Di Maria, Samuel Iling, Alex Sandro, Carlo Pinsoglio, Fabio Miretti, Matias Soule.
JUVENTUS XI (3-5-2): Wojciech Szczesny; Danilo, Bremer, Frederico Gatti; Juan Cuadrado, Manuel Locatelli, Nicolo Fagioli, Enzo Barrenechea, Mattia De Sciglio; Moise Kean, Arkadiusz Milik.
With 15 minutes to go before kick-off, let’s take a look at how the two sides are lining up - starting with our hosts!
Relegation-threatened Hellas Verona travel to Turin with just two points from their last five matches; their last win coming against Salernitana in mid February. Four points ahead of Sampdoria in 19th but five away from Spezia and safety, coach Marco Zaffaroni has just 11 matches left to keep his side in the division.
Juventus ended the pre-international break period on a high, beating Inter 1-0 in the Derby d’Italia to make it six wins out of seven in the league. The Bianconeri are up to seventh despite their 15-point penalty and could go just three points back of Roma ahead of their match tomorrow should the Bianconeri secure the three points at Allianz Stadium.
