Sassuolo 1-2 Juventus
(Hamed Jr. Trevor) (Paolo DiBalla, Ruan – Suicide)
Who knows if Sassuolo’s Brazilian defender Ruan angrily tore his hair at the end of the match.
Even if it is torn, it cannot be blamed. Sassuolo lost the match with his suicide goal at the very last moment of the match! And Juventus has reached the semi-finals of Copa Italia with the advantage of his suicide goal. The old men of Turin beat Sassuolo 2-1 in the quarter finals of the Coppa Italia today.
Juventus took the lead in the third minute through a goal from Argentine striker Paolo DiBalla, but Sassuolo equalized in the 24th minute. The team’s Ivorian midfielder Hamed Jr. made the scoreline 1-1 in Trevor. The match was unresolved till 6 minutes.
Then Ruwan made that mistake! However, the role behind the goal is not so much the role of Ruwan as it is the role of Serbian striker Dusan Vlahovic, who came to Juventus from Fiorentina last month. In the 6th minute, Vlahovich danced Sassuolo’s defense and dangerously entered the box from the left side. He went inside a little bit and took a shot with his right foot, which hit Ruwan on the back and changed direction.
Earlier, Dibala put the team ahead in three minutes. Right-winger Juan Cuadrado took a shot from left-back Alex Sandro’s pass from the left flank, which hit a Sassuolo defender near Dibala. ‘La Jaya’ put the team ahead in a volley.
In another quarter-final, Vlahovich’s former team Fiorentina beat Atalanta 3-2. Polish striker Christoph Piontek scored twice for Fiorentina, and Serbia center-back Nikola Milenkovic scored in the final minutes of the match to give the team a valuable victory. Right-back David Japaksta and winger Jeremy Boga scored for Atalanta. The other two teams in the semifinals are AC Milan and Inter Milan.
