Matthijs de Ligt Inspires Juventus to Victory
Centre-back Matthijs de Ligt scored the winner from a corner six minutes after Federico Chiesa’s equaliser. Spezia had produced their comeback from one goal down through Emmanuel Gyasi and Janis Artiste goals after Moise Kean opener in the 28th-minute of the game.
Chiesa was rewarded for his persistence as the ball broke kindly for his goal, led the Juventus fightback, and Chelsea target De Light stabbed home with 18 minutes remaining before a nervous-looking Juventus held on for a valuable first win of the season.
The victory moves Massimiliano Allegri’s side up to 12th in the table. Manager Allegri billed the match as a relegation six-pointer after two points from four games had left Juve in the bottom three. He has failed to win any of his first four games for the club in the league since his return to the club.
