Well, how about that for an end to the game!! After Bremer’s well-taken header got Juventus back into it, the Old Lady pressed on, winning a penalty right at the death, which levelled the scores at 2-2 following Sepe’s initial save.
Milik thought he’d won it with a late header from a corner, but after he’d been sent off for a second booking amidst wild celebrations, VAR intervened and chalked his goal off.
Chaos ensued, with Cuadrado and Fazio soon following him down the tunnel.
As a bright and energetic game sadly descended into madness!

After a decent-looking attack is repelled, Salernitana come back with force, as Mazzocchi dribbles into the left side of the box before firing the ball across goal, and Candreva arrives to finish at the far post!!! 1-0 to the visitors after their first real attack, and Juventus are stunned!!!

GOOOOAAAALLLL!!!! What a header!!! Juve pull one back in brutal style, as Kostic dispossesses Coulibaly down the right and crosses. It’s over Vlahovic, but Bremer arrives late, sending a thumping header bouncing up off the ground and into the top corner!!! 2-1, and it’s game on here!!
GOOOAAALLL!!! We are level!!! Sepe’s brilliant save didn’t put off Bonucci, who volleys in the rebound with his left foot to lock up the scores at 2-2!!
