Juventus took on AC Milan having taken just one point from their opening three Serie A games. At the Allianz Stadium in the Serie A fourth round, AC Milan played a 1-1 draw against Juventus without the injured duo Zlatan Ibrahimović and Olivier Giroud.
Alvaro Morata fired the ball into the back of the net beyond Mike Maignan taking the lead for Bianconeri just three minutes after the first whistle of the football match. After this Juve failed to score another goal but AC Milan equalized in the 76th minute with Ante Rebic scoring a goal.
The guests looked to be missing the attacking guile to take advantage of their increased possession in the second half but came up with an equalizer eventually when Ante Rebic found himself free to score a header from a perfectly-delivered corner, meaning Juventus have now failed to keep a clean sheet in 18 games.
The football results of 1-1 draw placed Rossoneri second in the standings, while Massimiliano Allegri’s men struggle at the bottom of the table with only 2 points after 4 games. Juventus head coach Massimiliano Allegri has commented on the 1-1 draw with AC Milan.
“Despite a good first half, when we created chances and allowed Milan just one opportunity, we even risked defeat at the end of a game that had been under total control. Unfortunately, we lost that concentration, determination and focus. Just look at the corner where we conceded the goal. It’s not possible to give this game away after being in control. Evidently, we need to make progress,” Allegri told DAZN, as per Football Italia.
“I am admitting a mistake on substitutions, I got it wrong. I should’ve put more defensive players on and put the 1-0 lead under lock and key, so I take responsibility for that.
It was important to get a positive result and we did. A defeat would’ve not definitively left us behind Milan, but a big advantage, now it is easier to bridge,” he continued.
“There were some positives – the first half, but what makes me angry are the final 15 minutes. We should’ve suffered more, should’ve been ready to fight. At those moments, you can’t look at being aesthetically beautiful, you just take the result home, even if it’s ugly. Fortunately the referee blew the final whistle, because we frankly risked defeat. If you don’t realize that you must put all personal issues aside, work as a full-back even if you’re a striker, then you won’t bring these results home”.
