Cristiano Ronaldo saved the furniture again, thanks to a penalty and then an extension of which he has the secret. But Juventus was jostled on the lawn of Roma (2-2) on Sunday night. And a man lived a most complicated evening: Adrien Rabiot. The French midfielder started with a penalty, completely missing a clearance and then blocking the ensuing strike with his hand. Then, shortly after the hour mark, his loss of the ball full axis was followed by a gross foul on Henrik Mkhitaryan, synonymous with a second yellow card while the Louve led 2-1.
“A match to forget”
A failed performance that the Italian press pointed out. ” All decisive negative situations come from him : the hand that causes the penalty, the second yellow that leaves Juve ten. A halt after months of progress ”, summarizes the Gazette dello Sport. “He has few ideas and everything is so foggy that after an hour, he takes a stupid second yellow card for a serious foul in midfield,” says the Corriere dello Sport. “A match to forget”, concludes Tuttosport. Rabiot will certainly be of this opinion.
