Juventus: Fagioli (55′), Bremer (79′)
With his name in Juve’s starting line-up, Pogba had his first kick for the Old Lady of Turin after 390 days. He was the one who created the first remarkable situation of the game with a turn to finish the left foot in the box. Unfortunately, Pogba’s effort in the 13th minute did not work because the ball hit the foot of an opponent defender and went out.
In the 21st minute, Pogba suddenly hugged his leg and lay down on the field. He appeared extremely painful even though no one collided with him. According to the Italian media, this is a sign that Pogba has a muscle strain. Having to leave the field to make way for Milik after less than 30 minutes of rolling the ball, it is likely that this French player will miss the upcoming match between Juve and Sevilla on May 19 (Europa League semi-final second leg). .
Without Pogba’s service, Juve still easily overwhelmed Cremonese who are ranked at the bottom of the table. However, it was not until the 55th minute that they opened the scoring after the “cannonball” hit the roof of Fagioli’s away team. In the 79th minute, the game was over when midfielder Bremer doubled the gap for Juve with two consecutive close-range shots.
No more goals were scored in the remaining minutes, meaning Juventus had a 3rd win in the last 4 matches. They continue to be in 2nd place on the table with 69 points earned after 35 rounds, ahead of Inter Milan ranked right after the number of points equivalent to 1 win.
In another remarkable match that took place last night, Roma only earned a 0-0 draw when away from the underrated Bologna field. This draw caused the team of coach Jose Mourinho (6th) to miss the opportunity to shorten the gap with the 4th ranked team Lazio (for Lecce to hold a 2-2 draw at home). When there are only 3 matches left, Roma is still 6 points from the top 4 (59 vs. 65).
