Juventus battled AS Roma in front of 33,039 at Gillette Stadium. Both teams were looking to exit the International Champions Cup with a bang. Everyone thought the Italian champions would win easily but AS Roma clearly had other things in mind. The statistics from the AS Roma-Juventus game were a lot closer than the scoreline suggests.
The game ended in 1-1 and Juventus needed extra time and luck to dispatch AS Roma via penalty kicks, 5-4.
According to Boston Globe, Mario Mandzukic found the back of the net from an Alex Sandro assist to give Juventus the lead in the first half but Edin Dzeko pulled one back for AS Roma in the 74th minute. The Serie A champions started with their Champions League stars that made it to the final twice in three years. However, the Bianconeri had to tweak their defense after losing Leonardo Bonucci to Milan. They played Medhi Benatia and Daniele Rugani in the first half while Andrea Barzagli and Giorgio Chiellini came as a substitute in the second half.
Both teams emptied their bench and gave debuts to their recent signings. Federico Bernardeschi and Douglas Costa played as substitutes for Bianconeri. Per NESN, if anyone is asking who can dethrone Juventus as kings of Italy, then AS Roma proved they could mount a serious challenge for the Serie A title.
As reported by SB Nation, Marco Tumminello misfired his penalty kick for AS Roma, which Juventus capitalized as their score their five attempts. The loss was AS Roma’s second defeat via penalty kicks in the tournament.
Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri lauded their opponents and claimed AS Roma. “This year they are our No. 1 challenger, based on the standings of last year. So, certainly a very strong team and promises to be stronger,” he added.
Barcelona claimed the International Champions Cup trophy after downing archrivals Real Madrid in a separate game.
