Juventus still has not found the desired football course so far this season and, this Wednesday, the team was left empty-handed in the Italian Super Cup. The duel for the coveted trophy was against Inter Milan and had an even development, but a series of errors at the last moment caused the fall of the ‘Vecchia Signora’.
The match had been tied 1-1 in the 90 minutes, due to goals from Weston McKennie (25′) and Lautaro Martínez (35′), for which the extension was decreed. During that stage, the clubs were unable to break each other and the ‘Juve’ coach, Massimiliano Allegri, decided to think of the ideal strategy for the penalty shootout.
After analyzing the panorama, the DT decided to send defender Leonardo Bonucci, who has experience in executing maximum penalties, to the field, and warned the players to take the ball out of the field, almost over 120 ‘. Paulo Dybala and Moise Kean realized the warning and tried to fulfill the task.
However, they failed to stop the actions and Inter Milan launched an attack down the left wing. Marcelo Brozovic controlled with a lot of space and touched immediately for Federico Dimarco, who avoided a strong tackle, set up a wall with Joaquín Correa and then took a cross.
Allegri and Bonucci watched the scene in desperation and only wished that the ball would be cleared. However, the plan they had could never be executed due to a serious defensive error: Alex Sandro lowered the ball with his chest for Giorgio Chiellini, but the central defender was anticipated by Matteo Darmian and the rebound favored Alexis Sánchez, who scored the 2- 1 end.
Unbelievably, the tie slipped out of Juventus’ hands at the last breath and Leonardo Bonucci was furious at the bitter moment. Even the defender could not bear to see the members of Inter Milan celebrating at his side and confronted Cristiano Mozzillo, manager of the ‘Nerazzurri’, but they were immediately separated. In football, just one detail can change the course of history.
