The Bianconeri knew full what needed to be done and they did exactly that. From the first minute they made their intentions clear and their 3-0 victory meant they did the “impossible” and completed the comeback!
VAR SAYS NO GOAL
The atmosphere was electric, with every inch of the stadium erupting in song and cheer. It was almost the perfect start for Juventus when they had the ball in the back of the net after just three minutes following a corner kick. Giorgio Chiellini – who was making his 500th appearance for the club – toe-poked it over the line after a scramble inside the box. However, after a silent check with VAR, the goal didn’t stand.
While it may have been absorbing in the stands, the play was intense on the field, with the Bianconeri pressing and dominating possession by the 25th minute. However, two decent chances fell to Atletico when Koke fired from range only to see it go over goal, while Antoine Griezmann fired in a powerful effort that stung the fingertips of Wojciech Szczesny.
