Gregoritsch and Freiburg fail at Juventus

Michael Gregoritsch and SC Freiburg lost 2-0 to Juventus Turin in the round of 16 second leg of the UEFA Europa League.

Since the Breisgauers already have to take a 0-1 deficit from Turin, it is not enough to turn the duel around on Thursday evening. Gregoritsch is on the pitch for 74 minutes. Philipp Lienhart is not in the squad due to injury.

Good start for Freiburg

Freiburg starts the game boldly and aggressively. At times, the Germans even try to run up to Turin. On the other hand, Juve tries to keep the ball in their ranks and often manages to successfully circumvent the Freiburg pressing.

Matthias Ginter then had the biggest Freiburg chance in the early stages with a header after a corner kick (22nd). However, Juve goalkeeper Szczesny can save the ball.

Supposed Juve leadership

After that, the Italians come into play better and better.

Juve meets a standard from the half-space for the supposed lead. (27.) A Bremer header lands on the crossbar. Kean’s shot then jumps to Vlahovic. The Serb finally puts the ball in the goal.

However, the goal is disallowed after a VAR review due to Vlahovic being offside when Kean attempted to finish.

Penalty opens game

The Italians had their next big chance in the 41st minute. Mark Flekken comes out well in a one-on-one against Moise Kean and can save the ball with his foot.

In the follow-up action, there is a penalty for Juventus. Gulde blocks Gatti’s close-range shot with his hand. After VAR insight, it’s a penalty. The player clearly widens his area in the action.

Due to the situation, Gulde also sees his second yellow card and has to leave the field early. So Freiburg continues to play with ten men.

Vlahovic shoots at Flekken in the middle of the penalty spot. However, due to the force of the shot, the ball lands in the Freiburg goal for a 1-0 lead. (45.)

Juve managed leadership

In the second half, the old lady tries to manage the game with possession football. However, the Allegri-Elf does not develop a special offensive urge. The Italians still have a lead of two goals.

In this phase of the game, the Freiburgers also fail to create any danger. It turns out to be an uneventful event. Juve’s Chiesa then made it 2-0 to Juventus in the fifth minute of added time. A placed degree ends up on the bottom left after Rabiot preparatory work.

After a confident group phase (5 wins, 1 draw), the Freiburgers say goodbye to the Europa League in the round of 16.

The journey continues for Juventus. After the point deduction in the league, winning an EL title is possibly the last chance for the Turin team to play in the Champions League next season.
