The debauchery of energy rewarded by the former Amienois Moussa Marega, the activity of Sergio Oliveria, the mediocre performance of Juventus Turin, weighed down by a fragile defense: find the Tops and Flops of Porto-Juventus Turin.
The generosity of Moussa Marega
Within a Porto team that still lacks real leaders, Moussa Marega has once again won over with his generosity and his profusion of energy. A commitment at all times, including in the pressing, which was rewarded with his goal when he returned from the locker room. The former Amiénois allows his team to converse good chances of qualification before the return match.
Sergio Oliveira, the brains of Porto
FC Porto’s top scorer in the league strolled by multiplying solo raids and taking advantage of the apathy of the opposing defense systematically leaving him free rein. A real poison for the midfielder of the Old Lady who has never managed to block the playing master of Sergio Conceicao’s team.
Federico Chiesa floats at Juve
In a bankrupt collective in Portugal, Federico Chiesa has often played his personal card. The Juve right-winger has undoubtedly been the most dangerous player on his team who owes him a lot. His goal, following a magnificent overflow from Rabiot on the left side, keeps the Piedmont club alive before the return match.
The permeable Turin defense
A disaster. Like the gag goal conceded in the first minute following a failed back pass from midfielder Bentancur for Szczesny, the Turin quartet showed worrying fragility, especially in the first period. Danilo has been warned and will be suspended in the second leg, Chiellini has relinquished his seat, complaining about his right calf in the first half and De Ligt is not the announced boss. Disturbing.
The Cristiano Ronaldo-Kulusevski duo
Kulusevski dragged on like a lost soul on the pitch, never managing to make the connection with the midfielders behind him. The agreement with Cristiano Ronaldo, lonely on his left side, was almost non-existent. The Portuguese must look forward to Dybala’s return.
Adrien Rabiot in the hard
There have been rumors of Everton’s interest this week in the Duke who no longer really favors Pirlo. Established in Porto, the former Parisian midfielder delivered an insufficient performance in the first period, posting an unusual technical waste. His second period was more satisfactory but his solo raid on the left side leading to the reduction in the score was not enough to save his match.
