Juventus, carried by the double of a revived Dusan Vlahovic, returned to victory in Serie A, a month after their last success in the league, by easily dominating Salernitana (3-0), Tuesday at the end of the 21st day .
Pushed back into the soft underbelly by her fifteen-point penalty for fraudulent transfers, the Old Lady goes back to 10th place, 13 points from fourth qualifying place for the Champions League occupied by Lazio Rome.
Dusan Vlahovic, finally recovered from a pubalgia that disrupted his fall and his World Cup in Qatar, put an end to a shortage that had lasted since October 15.
The Serb first converted a penalty following a foul on Fabio Miretti of Nicolussi Caviglia, a young player on loan from Juve to Salernitana, unlocking a fairly balanced match (26th) until then.
In confidence, he then multiplied the calls and took his chance several times, logically rewarded with a second goal as soon as a dry shot from the left resumed, allowing Juve to fly away at 3-0 (47th).
He had meanwhile offered the second Turin goal, involuntarily with a missed volley, to his compatriot Filip Kostic (45th).
Vlahovic’s renewed success (eight goals in total) is good news for Juve, further diminished by numerous injuries (Pogba, Bonucci, Paredes, Milik) to which was added Fabio Miretti, released on a stretcher after being hit in the an ankle.
Above all, it allows Juve, who also touched the amounts by Angel Di Maria and Moise Kean, to finally start again after two defeats and a draw in Serie A, even if they qualified for the semis at the same time. -Italian Cup finals.
Enough to bring some serenity back to the Bianconeri nine days before receiving Nantes in the Europa League play-offs. Continental competition has become a real goal after the penalty in the league, as it offers perhaps the most direct path, if ultimately successful, to the next Champions League.
