Udinese vs. Juventus - Football Match Report

Udinese surprisingly hit back early in the second half through Ilija Nestorovski, who scored with a stellar diving header on 52 minutes to get the match back on level terms.

Ilija Nestorovski cancelled out Matthijs de Ligt's opener and Seko Fofana grabbed the victor in second-half stoppage time to keep Juve's celebrations on ice.

Maurizio Sarri's champions-elect needed just one more win to clinch their ninth consecutive Serie A trophy - but they were forced to wait a few more days on Thursday evening after surrendering a narrow lead.

As Juve pushed for a victor, Fofana ran from the halfway line, beat Alex Sandro for pace before cutting inside De Ligt and slotting the ball under Wojciech Szczesny. We have lost aggression. "In this way, we took the game to a risky level, and after the 90th minute, we lost it".

"This season is hard, all the teams are playing in conditions different to the usual ones and everyone is exhausted", said Sarri.

And two minutes into stoppage time, Ivorian worldwide Fofana capped a solid match by getting the better of De Ligt to all but ensure Udinese of staying in Serie A with his third goal this season. "For this reason, being aggressive is something more tiring and, therefore, now what matters most is order ... The mental fatigue is more than the physical fatigue".

Even Tenet Has Finally Given in on Pandemic Movie Release Changes
But the surge of the virus across much of the US has upended the industry's aims for even a late-August return. Tenet was expected to be the first big-budget Hollywood film to be released in USA cinemas during the summer.

Inter have won two of their last six games and Lazio had taken only one point from their last 15 before Thursday.

Atalanta's next match is at AC Milan on Friday while Inter visit Genoa on Saturday and Juve host Sampdoria on Sunday.

Sarri is hoping to win the first league title of his career.

Musso also did well to turn away a Paulo Dybala shot and Cristiano Ronaldo was close from long range before Juve broke the deadlock three minutes before halftime.

Looking ahead to the future, the head coach said: "At the moment I am not thinking about the Champions League, in my mind there is only Sampdoria and Sunday's match: we have to be "on the ball", and then we'll think about the Cup".
