      Three goals, three points for the Bianconere

      Juventus claimed a 3-0 victory over Hellas Verona on Saturday afternoon at Stadio Ale e Ricky in Vinovo to maintain their unbeaten run in Serie A Femminile. Cristiana Girelli grabbed a goal in each half, while Maria Alves also got on the scoresheet.

      After their success in the Italian Super Cup last Sunday against Fiorentina Women, the Bianconere returned to the field for domestic action. Rita Guarino opted for a change between the posts by starting Doris Bacic in place of Laura Giuliani.

      FIRST HALF

      It took just two and a half minutes for Juventus to take a 1-0 lead when Girelli nodded home a cross from close range to leave the visiting team stunned. It was the Bianconeri who were finding the chances in the opening stages of the game, and Staskova soon found herself with space in the box. She then placed it neatly to an oncoming Caruso, but the cross went over the bar. The scoreline nearly doubled in favour of the Bianconere, after Hyyrynen delivered in a cross. It bounced onto the floor in front of Girelli and over the onrushing goalkeeper, with Staskova unable to get onto the end of it. Seconds later, Juventus were reduced to 10 players when Verona went on the attack and forced Bacic to come off her line and run to the end of the box. The referee judged her to have handled the ball outside her box and awarded a free kick on the edge of the area. Eniola Aluko was then sacrificed in place of Giuliani. The final seconds of the game saw Girelli fire in a free-kick, which forced the Verona goalkeeper to make a low diving reflex save at the far post.

      SECOND HALF

      Rita Guarino opted to make her second change of the game at the start of the second half when she introduced Maria Alves in place of Rosucci. The intensity started to slow down due to the numeral inferiority, but they managed to make it 2-0 in the 64th minute when Staskova run towards the byline and pulled back for the onrushing Alves. She then took her time and placed a low ball into the bottom right corner. Galli was then brought on to play the final 12 minutes of the game after replacing Staskova. The result was put beyond a doubt when Girelli added the third and final goal in the 87th minute when she turned the ball past the goalkeeper following a great cross by Galli.

      4-3-3

      Juventus: Bacic, Hyyrynen, Gama, Sembrant, Boattin, Caruso, Pedersen, Rosucci (Maria Alves 46’), Aluko (Giuliani 35’), Girelli, Staskova (Galli 79’)
