The home team – one of the big surprises of this Series A season – was able to keep up well before the break: the spectators in the Satdio Marcantonio Bentegodi saw opportunities on both sides. Ronaldo tried several times, but did not get any further than the post. Diego Costa also hit the aluminum, just before a goal from Hellas Verona was rejected: Marash Kumbulla passed Wojciech Szczesny with a header, but the VAR found offside.
After the break, the hosts insisted, but Juventus broke the spell after a burp from Ronaldo. The superstar started in his own half for a sprint, combined with Rodrigo Bentancur, was Amir Rrahmani too fast and defeated: 0-1 and accurate in ten (!) Series A-duels in a row.
However, Matthijs de Ligt and his teammates were by no means in a safe haven and had to go further and further: Hellas Verona even led 1-2 minutes five minutes before the end. The equalizer came in the name of Fabio Borini, who intercepted a bad pass from Miralem Pjanic and found the far corner. Five minutes before the VAR saw how Leonardo Bonucci made hands and the ball hit the spot: good old Giampaolo Pazzini made it 1-2 from the spot.
Hellas stood firm during the six-minute injury time and Juventus fears that Internazionale will be tied: Nerazzurri play the city derby against AC Milan on Sunday evening. Lazio can come to one point if wins a visit to Parma.
