At the start of the game, both the victory and the draw were the results that served the

Vecchia Signora


After the 1-0 victory obtained, a week ago, in Turin, he left the German team with the obligation to achieve a victory to get a ticket to the next round.

The match had a first half with a great pace of play.

Juventus did not come out to defend themselves and Freiburg, from the first moment, tried to stand in the rival field.

A lot of friction, many fouls, a lot of intensity, but few scoring chances, at least in the first minutes.

After 25 minutes, from a stopped ball, Allegri's team was able to score.

Bremer connected with a header after a forward delivery, the ball hit the crossbar, Moise Kean missed the shot when the ball remained and Dusan Vlahovic, turning around, capitalized on the action.

However, the Serbian, who had gone 8 games without scoring and celebrated with great relief, was behind goalkeeper Mark Flekken and, only, there was a single player behind the goalkeeper.

Off-side and correct decision of the VAR.

But Juventus, after his disallowed goal, was better off.

He began to move the ball, find space and have more presence in the middle of the court.

To top it off, when the first half was dying, Federico Gatti, who was in the rival area, finished off and the ball bounced off the hand of Manuel Gulde.

The German defender, who had been booked, saw the second card and was sent off.

Double punishment for Freiburg: they were left with one less man and a penalty was awarded.

Vlahovic, who wanted to get rid of the losing streak and had been left with the thorn of the disallowed goal, took responsibility.

When referee Serdar Gözübüyük blew the whistle, the forward shot hard and through the middle, the ball bounced off the support foot of Mark Flekken, who went to his left, but ended up hitting the goal.

The second half did not have much action.

Logically, Juventus was already calm with the result and, therefore, they protected their lines a bit and tried to take possession of the ball.

Freiburg, for its part, tried to face the remainder of the match, but playing with 10 players made it very uphill.

And as the game entered its final minute,

Federico Chiesa, who had entered 25 minutes into the plugin, received a pass from Adrien Rabiot and, with a lot of time inside the area, placed the ball against the left post.

Enzo Barrenechea, a 21-year-old footballer trained at Newell's Old Boys, who is taking his first steps with the Italian team and entered with 7 minutes remaining.

For his part,
