Serie A: Rabiot saves Juventus from a defeat against Salernitana

A goal from Frenchman Adrien Rabiot allowed Juventus (4th) to avoid a big disappointment at home against Salernitana (1-1), already relegated, during the 36th day of Serie A.

The end of the season is definitely very complicated for Massimiliano Allegri's team, which scored a fifth consecutive draw on Sunday. A lesser evil for the Turinese who almost lost to a team from Salerno, already in Serie B for two weeks.

In the race for the Champions League, Juventus still takes a valuable point and could secure a place in C1 in the event of a defeat of AS Rome (6th, 60 pts) on the pitch of the Atalanta Bergamo (5th) in the evening. Rabiot threw himself at a corner to push the ball into the back of the net (90 1) and spare his team a compromising defeat. Not enough to reassure as the Italian Cup final looms on Wednesday against Atalanta, freshly qualified for the Europa League final.

Juve had the first opportunity when Dusan Vlahovic fired a powerful shot deflected onto the crossbar by Salernitana goalkeeper Vincenzo Fiorillo (8th). Niccolo Pierozzi cooled the Juventini fans by opening the scoring with a powerful header following a corner hit by Junior Sambia (27th).

In the second period, Vlahovic had an equalizer during a counterattack, but his cross shot went just wide of the post (59th). In the 88th minute, young Fabio Miretti saw his shot crash into the bar, like Vlahovic in the first period.

The deliverance therefore came from Rabiot, even if the Turinese had one last scare on an attempt by Toma Basic who went on a counter-attack with two teammates.
