Rabiot spares Juventus blushes with late equalizer against Salernitana

Rabiot

Juventus were almost left embarrassed before digging out a stoppage-time equaliser against bottom-placed Salernitana in their Serie A encounter on Sunday evening. The plucky visitors almost produced a huge upset as they fell just short of victory, despite being bottom of the Serie A table and consigned to relegation. For Juventus, it was a difficult day in front of their home fans.

Adrien Rabiot’s goal two minutes into injury time prevented a humiliating home defeat for Juventus against bottom-club Salernitana.
Juventus were tepid in the first half and got punished for their lack of application when Niccolo Pierozzi met a corner at the near post and headed home through the hands of Wojciech Szczesny.
As poor as they were, Juventus did hit the woodwork twice in the first half as a powerful effort from Dusan Vlahovic shook the bar and Andrea Cambiaso’s low curler clipped the post.

The hosts were whistled off at half-time but came out the better side after the break. A triple change from coach Max Allegri helped, with one of these, Fabio Miretti, rattling the crossbar with a rocket from the edge of the area.
Rabiot’s goal came in fortuitous fashion after Manuel Locatelli backheeled Samuel Iling Junior’s low corner to him at the back post, allowing him to steer home.
