Immediately from the other side, behind the great lime, Dybala fired, but the goalkeeper of Ajax Onan was pulled out. In the 28th minute, Cristian Ronald's head was short. The Portuguese top turned to the corner of Pianic and opened the result after the confusion in the defense of the guests. His intervention also removed VAR. Juventus did not enjoy long.
