The Roma-Juventus matchup on May 12, 2019 could play a decisive role in the Romans’ fight for the Champions League. The starting whistle at Stadio Olimpico will sound at 21:30 Moscow time.Roma Wolves have three matches left to play, and Roma-Juventus is the toughest of them all. In addition to the defending champions, the Romans will play away against Sassuolo, as well as a home match against Parma in the last round. True, if you look at how Ranieri’s wards played past matches, then the fights against Sassuolo and Parma can be no less difficult than the game against Juve. The result against Genoa, to which the Romans went in the last round, can also be called unsuccessful. The hosts decided not to sit on the defensive, but rather the opposite – they took the gates of Roma under siege, which lasted the starting 20 minutes. During this time, the hosts have repeatedly disturbed the goalkeeper of the guests. However, very soon the advantage passed to the favorite. Towards the end of the first half, Roma took the game into her own hands. Federico Facio had a great chance to score as the defender headed from a corner but Genoa’s goalkeeper pulled the ball away with a great jump. Roma brought their advantage to a goal, but it happened after the break, Dzeko threw the ball to Stefan El Shaarawy, and the Italian shot the opponent’s goal from close range – 0:1 in the 82nd minute. It seemed that this was the end, but the most interesting was yet to come. The players of Genoa seized the initiative again, running to the attack with all their might. It was possible to snatch a draw in the first stoppage minute, Veloso hung from a corner, and Christian Romero threw the ball behind the goalkeeper – 1:1. But it could all end for Roma even sadder. Antonio Mirante, in the last stoppage minute, earned a penalty against his team, but the goalkeeper quickly corrected himself, repelling Antonio Sanabria’s kick from the penalty mark. The result is 1:1, a natural draw, but it allowed Atalanta to break away from the Romans by three points, and now it is the team from Bergamo that is the main contender for getting into the Champions League group stage. Juventus “Old Lady”, after guaranteeing itself gold medals, performs in the domestic championship is not so bright. The team gave away points to their opponents in the last two matches. Despite the guaranteed championship, the fight against Torino was still extremely important. Adding to the tension was the fact that the bulls were still hoping to cling to the fourth position, so they needed to win at the Allianz Stadium. The guests’ players showed their focus on the attack in the 18th minute, Lukic easily pushed Pjanic away, after which he dealt with the hosts’ goalkeeper – 0:1. “Zebras” clearly did not want to lose in front of their own audience, so they ran to win back the opponent’s advantage. Matuidi could answer almost immediately, the Frenchman effectively closed the pass from Ronaldo, but Salvatore Sirigu did not allow the midfielder’s goal to come true. A few minutes later, Ronaldo himself delivered a blow from outside the penalty area, but the Portuguese lacked accuracy. Torino took the lead at the break. The assault on the gates of the guests continued after the rest. One of the most active players in the hosts remained Cristiano Ronaldo. It was the Portuguese striker who was destined to equalize the score in the game, the leader of the “black and white” played well after Spinazzola’s flank serve, restoring parity six minutes before the end of regular time. Juventus did not have enough time to win, but even a draw almost blocked all Torino’s hopes for the Champions League.
