- Wojciech Szczesny escaped with misconstruing a corner, as Samu Castillejo let go over the bar, while Juve squandered a promising counter-assault with Giorgio Chiellini.
- Blaise Matuidi thought he had opened the scoring on 34 minutes, yet was hailed only offside as he jumped on a through ball to beat Gianluigi Donnarumma.
- Cristiano Ronaldo’s aerobatic mid-air volley from a Douglas Costa check skiped off the ground to brush the crossbar with Donnarumma attached to the spot.
- At the opposite end, Szczesny required an intense spare to deny Calhanoglu’s calculated drive subsequent to promising work from Lucas Paquetá.
It is a “no brainer” Juventus will always win in such an Italian game orchestrated by poor officiating. But Milan gave a good fight in it.
