Juventus Primavera beaten by Sassuolo

Double by Vedovato for the Emilians, who deservedly win, even if it must be considered that the average age of the Bianconeri was significantly lower than that of the guests

The age difference matters. For the experience and, in the case of the Primavera championship, also for the physical structure. Sassuolo’s 2-1 success in Vinovo, against Juve’s Under 19s, is clear: like the distance between the two squads in terms of average age. The sum of the ages of the eleven starters between one team and the other even adds up to 16 years: something that can make the Bianconeri proud of the project to enhance the players in their first year in this category, giving strength to the performance of Montero’s team ; and takes nothing away from Sassuolo’s success, which deserved the three points. The double face of the match is represented on one side by Babubakar, born in 2003, on the other by Montero junior who is born in 2007. The cover instead is entirely by Vedovati, author of a decisive brace.

the match

Bigica’s Sassuolo goals came at the end of the first half and halfway through the second: before the break, in the 41st minute, Vedovati took advantage of an error in the construction of the Juventus defence; in the 65th minute, however, the attacker optimized a great move by Russo, who managed to pass the ball through the net of three opponents. Juve doesn’t stand by and watch, on the contrary: Florea and especially Ripani try to create the conditions for the goal, despite not finding the right measures, like Mazur as a substitute in the second half. In the end Crapisto shortened, ten minutes from the end, immediately after a very good chance from Pugno: it was enough to proudly close a match that Sassuolo never gave the impression of losing out of their hands.
