In the 45th, Hernandez fired a fresh shot, which was repulsed by Shchesni, and a minute later, the guard also dealt with a shot of Piontek.
In the 52nd minute, Bernardeski`s long-range shot went out, and shortly afterwards the same happened with a shot by Matthew. In the 55th Ronaldo was replaced by Dybala, who seconds later looked for a pass to Higuain, whose shot proved inaccurate. In the 58th Pientec tried a shot that was shot by Schchesni, and De Licht did not allow the striker to make an addition. In the 66th, Matthew shot dangerously, but the ball went over the door. In the 68th, Dybala made a long shot on the ground, but was easily rescued by Donorum. In the 77th minute, the Argentine whipped the opposing defenders and sent the ball into their net for 1:0.
The visitors threw themselves into the attack in pursuit of an equalizing goal, with Chalhanoglu reporting missing. The Bianconeri could have reached the second goal in the added time, but first Higuain did not find the target, and then Donoruma saved a shot at Dybala. However, the hosts kept their fragile advance and congratulated themselves on the success.
In this way, Juventus maintained its first position in the standings and after that round, collecting an asset of 32 points. Milan, however, are at a disappointing 14th place with just 13 points after their seventh loss since the start of the season.
