Juventus digs deeper

Martinez thought he had caught up with a brilliant overhead kick, but Chiellini’s apparent foul eliminated the goal. Television replays showed that Lukaku’s contact was minimal.

Chiellini was once again in the limelight when he bundled the ball into an own goal under pressure from Lukaku on the 83rd. Calvarese first gave the Italian defender a free kick, then showed the yellow card and checked the replay before scoring a goal.

Cuadrado collapsed and remained calm to take advantage of Juventus’ expectations for qualifying with a decisive penalty.

When Marcelo Brozović issued his second yellow card when he was injured, both teams finished with 10 players.
