Rome (AFP) – Lazio Roma secured their place in next season’s Europa League on Monday by snatching a 2-2 draw with Juventus in the extreme, who had intended above all to celebrate the “monastery” at home to Giorgio Chiellini and Paulo Dybala.
With this point, obtained thanks to a goal from Sergej Milinkovic-Savic in the 96th minute, former Torino coach Maurizio Sarri’s Laziali guarantees a fifth or sixth place and thus will compete in C3.
The other place of the European League and European Conference (seventh) will be played on the last day between Rome (6), Fiorentina (7) and Atalanta (8).
Juventus already had his ticket in his pocket for the Champions League and thus was able to dedicate himself to celebrating his last home appearance under the jackets of captain Chiellini, 37, and Argentina’s Dybala, 28.
The first was substituted after just 17 minutes, like the number of years he spent with Juventus, and the second in the 78th minute. Both were welcomed by their partners and have always been praised by Tifussi.
All smiles, Chiellini greeted his teammates and coached him off the bench before starting his lap of honor as the game went on!
The European champions, who will bid farewell to FC Nacional on June 1 against Argentina, have not yet decided between stopping football permanently or embarking on a final adventure, for example in the North American Championship.
Dybala, who was entrusted with the captain’s armband before his departure, also applauded for a long time at his exit, and was greeted on the edge of the field by his former coach Sarri and his current player Massimiliano Allegri.
Mais il avait beaucoup moins le sourire, fondant même en larmes après le match: la “Joya” (le “Bijou” en espagnol) s’en va à regret, faute d’avoir trouvé un accord pour prolonger le contrat ve qui s’ach in juan.
The 28-year-old Argentine with 115 goals in the Bianconero since 2015 has made no secret of his bitterness. “I thought we would be together for many years, but fate sets us on different paths,” N.10 wrote on Instagram on Sunday, which some media send to Inter Milan.
Dusan Vlahovic, now responsible for personifying the Juve revival, also paid a more personal homage to Dybala by imitating his pagan celebration in a gladiator mask after opening the head sign (X).
With his 24th goal this season, the Serbian is still far from 27 goals for Ciro Immobile, who is supposed to finish the season’s top scorer for the fourth time in his career despite his absence on Monday, injured.
Led by 2-0 after the superb goal of Alvaro Morata (36), Lazio began to believe it again once he returned to a Jill Patrick header extended into his own net by Alex Sandro (51).
So grab the C3 equivalent equivalent after extra time.
