KEAN GOAL RULED OFFSIDE
Kean was the first to crack a whip at goal after the break when De Sciglio fed him a teasing ball, that saw the teenager fire at goal, but it went on the wrong side of the post. Pereira then fired an effort from range, which forced Rafael to scamper across the face of goal, but it went wide too. Emre Can had to be taken off just before the hour mark due to injury, and he was replaced by Manolo Portanova, who made his debut in Serie A. Meanwhile, Leonardo Bonucci replaced Chiellini in defence in the 65th minute.
Allegri’s final change came 10 minutes later, when Nicolussi Caviglia took the place of Pereira. Quagliarella’s last effort of the game saw him attempt another acrobatic effort towards goal, and it was dealt with by Pinsoglio. Kean had the ball in the back of the net in the 80th minute, when he broke through Sampdoria’s backline and chipped the ball over Rafael, but it was blown for offside and the decision stood after a silent VAR check.
