HAMBURG – Juventus Turin had to accept a belated mood dip in the last emotional home match for club icon Giorgio Chiellini. In a 2-2 (2-0) win over Lazio, Sergei Milinkovic-Savic equalized in the sixth minute of extra time and finished fifth in the European guest league.
Previously, Alex Sandro (51) with an own goal made the Romans back after goals from Dusan Vlahovic (10) and Alvaro Morata (36) for Juventus.
But the game was all about Chiellini. The stellar defender was substituted in the 17th minute of the match in his 560th appearance for the Bianconeri and was saluted loudly on his honorable lap.
Chiellini debuted 17 years ago
In October 2005 – 17 years ago – the European champions made their debut with Juventus and then celebrated nine trophies and five titles with the club. The 37-year-old could be attracted to the United States. Paulo Dybala was also sent off by applause in the last quarter of the hour.
With the draw, Torino, who had already secured re-qualification to the Champions League, missed the hoped-for reaction to the bitter cup final defeat to Inter Milan (2:4 thereafter), which concluded a title-free season. Successful Ivy.
