In the second half, Juventus continued to push forward, but stayed pragmatic looking to protect the lead. Mid-way through the second half, Paulo Dybala made his return to the field for Juventus replacing Douglas Costa and he nearly scored just minutes after. Alex Sandro sent in a cross for La Joya in the 70th minute but the Argentine couldn’t quite direct the effort on goal.
The Bianconeri were able to seal out the last 20 minutes of the match to confirm an all-important 1-0 win at the Stadio Olimpico. It’s a sixth-straight clean sheet in Serie A for the Bianconeri who, at least temporarily, take back the top spot in Serie A depending on Napoli’s result against SPAL later on Sunday.
