Juve no longer responds. Beaten 2-1 in Verona on Saturday on the 11th day of Serie A, the Turinese had a black week marked by two defeats in the league.
In the standings, Juventus already fallen Wednesday against Sassuolo (2-1), is overtaken by Hellas Verona, which has as many points (15) but a favorable goal difference. She plunges especially into doubt before receiving Zenith Saint Petersburg in the Champions League on Tuesday.
The draw (2-2) between Atalanta and Lazio for its part does not do the business of the two teams who could have come closer to the podium in the event of victory. He could be in favor of the third Inter Milan who can take off on Sunday in case of victory over Udinese.
At 8.45 p.m. Saturday, Torino, 13th, welcomes Sampdoria Genoa. On Sunday, the leader Naples and his runner-up AC Milan, respectively on the lawns of Salernitana and AS Roma, will try to continue the race in the lead.
And the executioner of the Bianconeri is called Giovanni Simeone. The Argentine striker, symbol of Veronese efficiency in the first period, offered himself a brace in three minutes.
In the 11th, Diego Simeone’s son took advantage of a strike from Barak which Szczesny pushed back to open the scoring. This just before making the break on a superb shot coiled outside his area, and while he was absolutely not threatened by the opposing defense.
Without being flamboyant, the Turinese could have come back earlier in the game, but Paulo Dybala was unsuccessful, like this strike pushed back by the bar just before the break.
Entered on the hour mark, the American Weston McKennie gave his people hope with a powerful strike (80th). But the last assaults of Juve did not yield anything.
This Turin team may have missed a Marten de Roon. In any case, the Dutch striker allowed Atalanta to snatch a 2-2 draw against Lazio Rome (94th) at the start of the 11th day.
With a good recovery from the left, he offered a deserved point to the Bergamasques, while Lazio thought they had done the hardest part. Pedro opened the scoring (18th) by resuming a strike from Ciro Immobile repelled by the goalkeeper, before the Italian international returned the advantage to his team a quarter of an hour from time (44th).
This result does not suit anyone in the standings. But it allows Atalanta to reassure themselves before welcoming Manchester United on Tuesday in the Champions League. Lazio, who has not won away since the first day of the championship, moves to the lawn of Olympique de Marseille in the Europa League on Thursday.
