Vlahovic’s Brace Powers Juventus to 3-0 Victory


Vlahovic’s Brace Powers Juventus to 3-0 Victory .In a spectacular Serie A clash, Juventus emerged triumphant with a 3-0 win over Sassuolo, thanks to a remarkable first-half performance by striker Dusan Vlahovic. The sold-out home crowd witnessed Juventus extend their unbeaten league run to an impressive 15 games under the guidance of manager Massimiliano Allegri.

Despite Sassuolo enjoying more possession, Juventus maintained control throughout the lively encounter at the Juventus Stadium. Vlahovic, in splendid form, secured the victory with a stunning brace in the first half. The 23-year-old Serbian striker broke the deadlock in the 15th minute with a powerful shot from just outside the box. Before the break, he added another goal to his tally with a remarkable free-kick from long range, marking his ninth goal of the season.

Allegri praised Vlahovic’s performance, highlighting the striker’s improved composure. Allegri mentioned, “Vlahovic played a good game; he was much more calm. This morning I spoke to him and told him that he wanted to overdo it in the Coppa Italia quarterfinal against Frosinone. Tonight he was much more lucid.”

Vlahovic’s recent form is noteworthy, as he has been directly involved in goals in four consecutive Serie A appearances, contributing three goals and two assists. Allegri acknowledged Vlahovic’s journey through a challenging period and emphasized his dedication to improvement.

Sassuolo, the team responsible for Juventus’ sole defeat of the season in all competitions, had their chances, with forward Domenico Berardi coming close in the 53rd minute. However, Juventus goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny made a brilliant save to deny Berardi’s powerful shot. Sassuolo continued their efforts, but substitute Federico Chiesa sealed the win for Juventus in the 89th minute with a well-placed low strike.

With this victory, Juventus remains in the second position in the Serie A standings with 49 points, just two points behind leaders Inter Milan and seven points ahead of third-placed AC Milan. The upcoming match against 13th-placed Lecce provides an opportunity for Juventus to secure the top spot, as Inter Milan will only return to Serie A action on Jan. 28 following the Italian Super Cup played in Saudi Arabia.

Sassuolo, currently in the 14th position with a narrow two-point margin from the relegation zone, will look to bounce back in their next fixture against mid-table Monza.

In summary, Juventus showcased dominance with Vlahovic’s exceptional performance, securing a convincing victory over Sassuolo. The team’s unbeaten run and Vlahovic’s stellar form position them as strong contenders in the Serie A title race. The upcoming matches will be crucial in determining their standing in the league.
