Fiorentina vs Juventus Result: Score 1-1

49ERSSPORTS - Juventus travel to Fiorentina's headquarters in week 5 of Serie A 2022/2023, Saturday 3 September 2022. The Italian League match at the Artemio Franchi ended in a 1-1 draw.

Juventus had a quick lead through Arkadiusz Milik's goal in the 9th minute. However, Fiorentina could equalize through Christian Kouame in the 29th minute. Fiorentina striker Luka Jovic missed a penalty at the end of the first half. After that, there were no goals in the second half, and both teams had to settle for sharing points.

With this result, it means that Juventus are still unbeaten this season (W2 D3 L0), while Firoentina have gone four straight games without a win. Juventus is now looking at the match against PSG in the Champions League next week.

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri reserved Dusan Vlahovic for this match. New striker Arkadiusz Milik is believed to be a starter at the spearhead position. Angel Di Maria, back from injury and playing 36 minutes against Spezia in the previous game, started this time. Meanwhile, new midfielder Leandro Paderes made his debut for the Bianconeri.

In the first half, Juventus lost in ball possession (53%-47%), total shots (9-4), and shots on target (4-1). However, the score was just as strong until the break. Juventus took the lead through Milik's goal from Filip Kostic's assist, while Fiorentina replied through Kouame's goal from Riccardo Sottil's assist.

Fiorentina awarded a penalty in the 43rd minute. The referee awarded the penalty after Paredes was sentenced to handball via VAR. Jovic advanced as an executioner, but the execution of the striker who had just joined Fiorentina from Real Madrid was denied by goalkeeper Mattia Perin.

Allegri then pulled off Di Maria early in the second half. The effect is very pronounced. Juventus did not add a single number of shots in the second half.

Fiorentina are a bit better in terms of attack. However, their final finishing that was less than optimal made the match end just as strong.
