The Bianconere made it 10 Serie A wins out of 10 by comfortably beating Chievo 6-0 on their first competitive outing after the winter break, as Benedetta Glionna, Katie Zelem and Barbara Bonansea scored two goals apiece.
Rita Guarino’s girls went on the attack from the off and their perseverance told when they hit the post twice in the space of two minutes: Glionna in the 18th minute after a shot following a corner and then, after another corner, Aurora Galli saw her dipping shot palmed onto the very same post by Chievo goalkeeper, Giulia Maleddu. Despite the early dominance, the visitors nearly took the lead in the 25th minute when a free-kick just outside the Juventus Women penalty area hit the crossbar.
With Chievo growing in confidence they pushed forward in an attempt to go in front but they were picked off on the break, as Juve unleashed a quick counter-attack. Martina Rosucci slipped a fantastic ball into the path of Glionna, and the striker made no mistake as she buried her shot to give the Bianconere the lead. Juventus Women doubled their advantage five minutes from half-time with a stunning free-kick from Zelem that gave the Chievo goalkeeper no chance as it flew over the wall and into the back of the net.
In the second half, Juve made it three almost instantly as Bonansea was again played in by Rosucci, and the striker kept her cool to slot past the keeper and put the Bianconere even further ahead in the match.
It was 4-0 in the 70th minute mark as Glionna scored what would be the first of three braces when she found herself one-on-one with Maleddu, dribbled past her and poked home into an empty net. The next set of braces came just two minutes apart as first Zelem scored with a fantastic strike from distance to make it five in the 83rd minute, before Bonansea ran through the Chievo defence in the 85th and finished with aplomb to make it 6-0 to Juventus Women.
After this fantastic start to the year, Juventus Women will head to Tavagnacco on 27 January where they will hope to extend their excellent winning streak.
