JUVENTUS 2-1 AC MILAN : Dybala Scores Late Securing 11 Point Lead


Dybala scored late from the penalty Spot, in a game that was destined for a draw, securing an eleven point lead over Second place Roma, who will be playing Palermo on Sunday.

Medhi Benatia had opened the scoring for Juventus in the Half hour mark, but Carlos Bacca equalized before the Half time whistle which seemed enough for a draw because the AC Milan goalie, Gianluigi Donnarumma had pulled out some fine saves against the in form Juventus.

However, Juventus opened an eleven point lead at the end of the game courtesy of Paulo Dybala 97th minute penalty. Minutes before the goal, Referee Davide Massa showed Sosa a second yellow card in the 93rd minute after he brought down Kwadwo Asamoah, and Milan were unable to hang on with 10 men as Dybala made no mistake with a spot-kick awarded for a controversial handball decision against Mattia De Sciglio.

Juventus totally dominated the game from the beginning of the game but AC Milan later got into the game gradually and their first attempt was a the equalizer. The Juventus team had last lost at home back in August therefore there was high optimism as to what they expected the result to be.

But there would be late drama as Milan were reduced to 10 men in stoppage time when Sosa received his second booking for a reckless foul on Asamoah, before the referee awarded Juventus a penalty when Stephan Lichtsteiner's cross struck De Sciglio's arm.
