Of the last five matches, Simone Inzaghi's men have only taken one point and instead of playing the finalists, they could only accompany Juventus to the title.

The Roman workforce is very short and with Cataldi, Anderson, Parolo or Bastos, he appeared on Monday with substitutes and reservists in place of the incumbents.

For Juventus , it ’ s a setback for the team backed by the billionaire Agnelli family, whose purchase of Ronaldo last year was seen in part as driven by a desire to win Europe’s top club competition. It ’ s the first time the Champions League semi-final won’t feature the Portuguese superstar for nine years

- Ronaldo-Immobile: the duel continues -

Lyon, which will find the Bianconeri in less than three weeks in the round of 16 second leg of the Champions League, will be more wary of that of the second period, ruthless for half an hour on each adverse error.

In this register, Cristiano Ronaldo excels. The Portuguese first hit hard from outside the box. Bastos hit the ball with his arm and Ronaldo converted the penalty (51st).

Three minutes later, Dybala stole a ball on a lightness of the Roman defense and led the counter into the box where he served Ronaldo for an easy double (54th, 2-0).

With this goal, the five-time Ballon d'Or climbs to 30 goals since the start of the season in the league, including a penalty car (12). Since his arrival in Turin, he has reached 50 goals in Serie A, a milestone he had already reached in the championships in England and Spain.

Juve seemed in control at the time, but having already squandered a two-goal advantage twice in recent weeks, they scared themselves again.

Bonucci thus conceded a very avoidable penalty, transformed by Immobile (83rd, 2-1), also with 30 goals and who will contest the title of top scorer to Ronaldo until the end.

A few more scares later, Juventus saved their three points, and they're worth dear. Turinese are still neither very convincing nor very scary. But they are champions, or almost.

Hellas Verona - Atalanta Bergamo 1 - 1
