Juventus got off to a good start at the return from the international break by beating Lazio Roma (2-0) thanks to two penalties from Leonardo Bonucci.

Milan stumbles

Downfall for the Rossoneri, surprising Fiorentina’s often-attractive against the big boys but few rewards so far.

Fiorentina took advantage of Milan goalkeeper Ciprien Tatarosano’s mistake, who replaced Mike Minan in Milan’s cage, who was absent for another month, to open the scoring through Alfred Duncan (15th).

The result was a celebration of missed opportunities for Milan and Fiorentina counters, who escaped with a nice curled shot from Riccardo Sabonara (45+1) and then a winning raid on Dusan Vlahovic (60).

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, clumsy yet, kept the torch in the Rossoneri by doubling (62, 67).

Juventus on the right foot

Thanks to two Bonucci penalties, Juventus was relaunched after the first third of the season.

In the absence of Paulo Dybala, who returned from Rally Argentina with a calf injury, Alvaro Morata and Federico Chiesa were decisive with both penalties.

The first prize (23) was awarded after a video-assist intervention for a foul by Danilo Cataldi on the Spaniard. Bonucci changed him to start a match that started with the wrong rhythm, particularly due to a long break due to an injury to Torino defender Danilo (groin), who was fired at a stretcher.

The second was secured by Chiesa after a clumsy tackle from Pepe Reina. Bonucci was once again elated to ensure his family’s victory, scoring at the Stadio Olimpico, where Jorginho missed a week earlier against Switzerland (1-1) a penalty that owes Nacional to playing in the Global-2022 qualifiers.

“If I had been asked, I would have shot him without a problem but it was him,” Bonucci replied, after a match that Adrien Rabiot did not finish, which was clearly affected by the right flank.

Atalanta beat La Spezia (5-2) and teacher Gian Piero Gasperini gave the lesson to student Thiago Motta. The former Paris Saint-Germain midfielder, 39, who has been on the bench at La Spezia since last summer, quoted in his training thesis last year the offensive principles of Gasperini, 63, his former coach at Genoa (2008-2009).
