Morata also skips his second chance

Now the outsider sensed his chance and continued to play forward, but Corona (24th), Otavio (25th) and Zaidu (26th) did not aim precisely enough before Morata had the equalizer, but failed to Marchesin (27th) .). In this scene, too, Juve could have turned the game around - but the Bianconeri made up for that after the break.

Chiesa steals the show from CR7

Only afterwards did Chiesa equalize with a rich and beautiful eight-meter shot into the corner (53rd) after a discard of the overall quite harmless Cristiano Ronaldo that evening, then Taremi saw two yellows within two minutes and thus yellow Red (54th), before Chiesa failed at the post (56th). It all happened in quick succession - and Juve turned the game around: Cuadrado served the ball from the right half-field - Chiesa headed in to make it 2-1 (63rd).
