Juventus blow two-goal lead
The 2020-21 Juventus side was known for playing down to opponents in what was a poor season overall domestically and continentally. The 2021-22 team is following in those footsteps early on. With rumors about Cristiano Ronaldo’s future swirling, Juve blew a 2-0 lead to Udinese before Ronaldo looked to have headed home a dramatic winner in added time.His header goal was ruled out for offside after VAR intervened with the match ending at 2-2.
Wojciech Szczęsny, Juve’s goalkeeper, was at fault for both goals, conceding a penalty kick before a horrendous blunder later on.
The Polish goalkeeper failed to deal with a back pass in the 83rd minute that resulted in the equalizer by Gerard Deulofeu.
