Juventus 1-0 Fiorentina: Juan Cuadrado wins injury time at the Allianz Stadium to end Juve’s losing streak in Serie A and put Massimiliano Allegri’s men back on track
- Juan Cuadrado scored a goal in injury time to see Juventus beat Fiorentina
- Vincenzo Italiano’s team dropped to 10 men after Milenkovic’s expulsion
- The Cuadrado scored in the 90 + 1 minute of the game to see his team win 1-0
Juan Cuadrado’s injury-time goal earned Juventus a 1-0 win over 10-man Fiorentina in Serie A on Saturday as the Turin club ended a three-game winless streak in the league.
The Colombian substitute beat goalkeeper Pietro Terracciano at his near post with a powerful effort in the final minutes to claim victory, despite a poor performance from Juve in which he failed to finish on goal until the 86th minute.
The expulsion of Fiorentina defender Nikola Milenkovic in the 73rd minute injected some life into the hosts when Federico Chiesa fired a shot off the crossbar and Álvaro Morata disallowed an offside goal before Cuadrado broke through when he died.
The result leaves Juventus eighth with 18 points, at the height of Fiorentina above them.
