(EFE) .- A goal by the Spanish Álvaro Morata prevented this Saturday the defeat of a Juventus without the Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo, positive for coronavirus, in the field of the newly promoted Crotone (1-1), on the fourth day of Serie A .
With Cristiano in quarantine at home and still in doubt for the Champions League match against Barcelona on October 28, Juventus once again showed difficulty at the level of play and stumbled for the second consecutive game, after 2-2 against Roma .
Andrea Pirlo’s team, in which Gianluigi Buffon, the Brazilian Arthur Melo and the Uruguayan Rodrigo Bentancur started, still does not shine and is now fourth, with eight points, four behind Milan, the ideal score leader.
In addition, three of the eight points of the Turin team were handed over to him by the Serie A Sports Judge, who considered that Napoli violated health protocol by not traveling to Turin on October 4 for the match corresponding to the third day.
This Saturday at the Ezio Scida stadium, it was Crotone who took the lead. He did so in the 12th minute, when a Leonardo Bonucci penalty was safely transformed by Nigerian Nwankwo Simy, who struck down veteran goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon.
The reaction of Juventus, who played with young starters Gianluca Frabotta and Manolo Portanova, was led offensively by Morata, who celebrated the first goal of his new Turinese stage. The Madrilenian already played in Turin from 2014 to 2016 and his last touchdown went back to the 2016 Italian Cup final against Milan.
The former Atlético Madrid striker gave everything to give Juventus victory at the restart, even after Federico Chiesa, in his debut, was sent off for a hard foul on Luca Cigarini.
However, Morata first ran into a post and then VAR, which annulled a goal by one millimeter, but correct, offside.
