Rita Guarino's girls put in an unstoppable performance at Vinovo today, winning 5-0 against Pink Bari, in a game where they were in complete control from start to finish.
The Bianconere went on the attack from the off and created their first chance after just four minutes of play. Lisa Boattin was found alone in the box by Eniola Aluko, but the full-back couldn't get her shot on target. However, she soon made amends when minutes later Boattin won a penalty after being upended in the box. Aurora Galli stepped up and made no mistake from 12 yards to put Juve in front.
Not long had passed when Barbara Bonansea doubled the Bianconere's lead with a shot from outside the box that beat Roberta Aprile in the Pink Bari goal. After 24 minutes Juve were 3-0 up, after a lovely one-two between Arianna Caruso and Bonansea, saw the number 21 in on goal, and despite the keeper saving her initial effort she should do nothing about Caruso's follow-up.
Juve made it four before the end of the half, Valentina Cernoia's shot was blocked by Aprile, but Cristian Girelli was there to tap the ball home. A minute after the restart and it was five, Sara Gama reacted well to a Bianconere short corner to effectively wrap the game up after 46 minutes. Juventus threatened to add to their lead in the second half with substitute, Benedetta Glionna going closest on a free-kick towards the end.
After a such a pleasing result, Juventus Women will be hoping to continue the momentum when they take on Fiorentina away on Sunday 25 November (12:30 CET).
