Resutl: Juventus 2-0 Bologna
Date: 24 January 2021
Venue: Allianz Stadium
Juventus returned to winning ways in Serie A with a 2-0 victory over Bologna at Allianz Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
Juve boss Andrea Pirlo made one change to his starting lineup as Federico Bernadeschi came in for Federico Chiesa.
Arthur grabbed his first goal in a Juve shirt when he gave the Bianconeri the lead in the 15th minute, finishing in the bottom right-hand corner after being assisted by Cristiano Ronaldo.
Bernadeschi had a fabulous opportunity two minutes later after being played through on goal and he tried to lift the ball over Lukasz Skorupski but his effort went over the bar.
Ricardo Orsolini then found room down the right inside channel and he tried to force a low effort towards the near post. Wojcech Szczesny got enough on the strike to divert it wide of the post and into the side-netting.
Skorupski then produced some heroics with a double save to deny Ronaldo and then Bernadeschi.
Soon after, Juan Cuadrado wasted a huge opening. The Colombian surged into the box with a brilliant run and managed to fend off Danilo Larangeira. However, under pressure from the Brazilian, he scooped his strike from 10 yards over the bar.
Szczesny then stopped Cuadrado scoring a spectacular own goal after the Juve attacker got his clearance all wrong and the Pole did brilliantly to tip the ball over the bar just in time.
Winston McKennie doubled Juve's lead in the 71st minute. Cuadrado delivered an excellent cross and McKennie directed the header past Skorupski into the left corner of the net.
The last chance fell to Adrien Rabiot, who bundled his way through a challenge from Soumaoro before thumping a left-footed strike towards the net that Skorupski did well to palm wide of the target.
