Entirely in line with the meager start in the competition, Juve was also not on the ball against fellow townsman Torino. A corner kick ended up with some fortune at the feet of defender Nicolas N’Koulou, who hit the ball against the ropes. Juventus had been forced to chase ever since, but barely managed to bring top duo Cristiano Ronaldo-Paulo Dybala into scoring position.
Right back Juan Cuadrado thought his team would shoot at the same height after just under an hour of play, but his goal was rejected by the VAR after intervention. Twenty minutes later, the party could still be celebrated: the same Cuadrado reached the head of Weston McKennie with a cross, who leveled the score. Just before time it was Leonardo Bonucci who headed the 2-1 on the scoreboard.
