It’s all AC Milan party in San Siro. The Rossoneri sealing the game scoring for the 3-0 in the 66th minute. Diogo Dalot delivering a left footed shot in the bottom left corner. The assist is by Ismaël Bennacer.  Dalot scoring his first goal with AC Milan, what a dream!

41% Ball Possession JUVENTUS and 59% Ball Possession BARCELONA
Juventus 0 – 2 Barcelona
.                                                              14′ Ousmane Dembélé
.                                                               91′ Lionel Messi (pen)

The battle of the Argentineans Number 10 between Paulo Dybala and Lionel Messi is won by Messi.  Juventus failing to win the UEFA Champions League Group Stage, Matchday 2 defeated by Barcelona on Wednesday 28 October 2020 at the Allianz Stadium in Turin, Italy.    This is just a disappointing result because Juventus forward Alvaro Morata scored 3 goals and all 3 were ruled out for offside.  On top of that, a late penalty converted by Lionel Messi.   Juventus could not recover forward Cristiano Ronaldo testing positive again with COVID-19.   I must say that I expected a better match and saw Dybala overshadowed by Messi.

Oh my gosh…. not a good start!  Barcelona opening the score in the 14th minute, it is Ousmane Dembélé to defeat Juventus goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny with a right footed shot in the top left corner following the assist by forward Lionel Messi.  Time to wake up for Juventus!!!!

Lady Luck where are you!!!!!!!  What a luck, guys!  Juventus with two chances to score with Álvaro Morata and the goal is ruled out for offside in the 30th minute…. just fainting!  The first attempt was in the 15th minute and the VAR ends up ruling a handball.

Juventus remaining with 10 players.  In the 85th minute, Merih Demiral gets a second yellow card for the automatic red card leaving the Juve in total desolation!!!!

Say no moreeeeeeeeeeee  game over!!!!   Barcelona sinking Juventus with the final penalty in the 91st minute converted by Lionel Messi.

Here is JUVENTUS official starting lineup – formation by Coach Andrea Pirlo:

JUVENTUS (3-4-1-2): Szczesny; Danilo, Bonucci, Demiral; Cuadrado, Rabiot, Bentancur, Chiesa; Kulusevski; Dybala, Morata.

Here is BARCELONA official starting lineup – formation by Coach Koeman:

BARCELONA (4-2-3-1): Neto; Sergi Roberto, Araujo, Lenglet, Jordi Alba; Pjanic, De Jong; Dembélé, Griezmann, Pedri; Lionel Messi.

Juventus Coach Andrea Pirlo winning his debut as Coach in the UEFA Champions League Group Stage – Group C defeating Dynamo Kiev on Tuesday 20 October 2020 at the NSK Olimpiyskiy Stadium in Kiev, Ukraine at 18:55.  The victory is a boost to the morale of the team in the absence of key star Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo recovering from COVID-19.

Juventus opening the score in the 46th minute. The action started by Aaron Ramsety with a backheel to Dejan Kulusevski seeing his shot saved, though, the ball was still in the area and then there you go the assist to forward Álvaro Morata defeating Dynamo Kiev goalkeeper Georgi Bushchan from very close range with a left footed shot in the top left corner.

Juventus increasing the score in the 84th minute. It is again Álvaro Morata to push Juventus bandwagon to secure the victory. Morata delivering a headed shot in the center. The assist is by Juan Cuadrado.

AC Milan winning the Milan Derby claiming the full bragging rights to rule the City of Milan. The hero is forward Zlatan Ibrahimović scoring the two goals showing who is the ruler in Milan. You bet, Zlatan returnig stronger after recovering from COVID-19. Inter failing to win to climb the Serie A Standing ending with a 1-2. AC Milan reaching 12 points having +5 points over Inter and the victory leading the league in the 1st position! It’s a dream start of the season for AC Milan winning all 4 games for the first time since 1995/96, with Coach Fabio Capello.

👉 Highlights of the game is forward Zlatan Ibrahimović equalizing Silvio Piola scoring over 2 goals in @SerieA_EN for players over 38 years old.

Crotone win their first point in this 2020-2021 Season after their promotion from the Serie B. Crotone surviving the pressure dueling with Juventus Italy’s Champions at the Ezio Scida in Crotone. It is a sour draw for Juventus considering they were playing against the team in the last position while for Crotone is almost like a victory grabbing this single point avoiding a so-called expected goleada. The big absent was Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo who is in quarantine after testing positive with COVID-19. Sour debut for Federico Chiesa getting a red card in the 60th minute after a foul on Luca Cigarini.

A brave Napoli dominating at the San Paolo Stadium sinking the “Dea”. Napoli suffocated Atalanta with a 4-1 which must be a wake-up call in view of the Champions League on Wednesday. Atalanta Coach Gian Piero Gasperini admitting Napoli were great.  Kudos for Napoli forward Hirving Lozano scoring 2 goals!

Lazio is humiliated. Sampdoria battling and winning the home game at the Luigi Ferraris Stadium with a 3-0. Forward Fabio Quagliarella scoring. The first goals in Serie A by Augello and Damsgaard. Sampdoria Coach Claudio Ranieri giving a tough lesson to Lazio Coach Simone Inzaghi not slowing down. Simply put, it seems that without forward Ciro Immobile and Lazzari the team are just a shadow. It is a sour debut for Muriqi.  Lazio must archive this mediocre performance and prepare for the Champions League against Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday.

AS Roma surviving the pressure to win the Serie A Week 4 game defeating Benevento at the Olimpico di Roma Stadium.   Roma reacting after being down to overturn the result and crushed Benevento claiming all 3 points.  It is an important victory because Roma climbed from the 10th to the 7th position reaching 7 points while Benevento stepped down from the 8th to the 10th position.   Roma and Inter have 7 points each.

The real bad news in this round is for Torino being the only team not winning a game this season.  Torino lost the home game defeated by Cagliari with a 2-3.  Torino is now in the 20th position! An urgent wake up call …..
