Bologna 1-1 Juventus: Milik nets equaliser after penalty miss

Bologna 1-1 Juventus: Arkadiusz Milik nets equaliser after MISSING penalty as Old Lady secure comeback after Riccardo Orsolini’s opener… to see Massimiliano Allegri’s side move three points clear in third place

  •  Orsolini netted from the penalty spot after just 10 minutes 
  •  Milik equalised despite missing a penalty in the first half of the match
  •  Juventus sit three points clear in third place in the Serie A table

A second-half goal by Arkadiusz Milik helped Juventus salvage a 1-1 draw at Bologna in Serie A on Sunday, leaving Massimiliano Allegri’s side winless in five consecutive games across all competitions.

Juventus remain third on 60 points from 32 games, one point behind second-placed Lazio who suffered a 3-1 loss at Inter Milan earlier on Sunday.

Bologna took a surprise lead in the 10th minute from a penalty kick awarded for Danilo’s tackle on Riccardo Orsolini, which the winger went on to execute.

Juventus were awarded a penalty themselves 20 minutes later, after Bologna defender Jhon Lucumi brought down Milik on the edge of the box, but the striker’s powerless low shot was saved by keeper Lukasz Skorupski.

The Bologna keeper did well to keep the hosts’ goal safe on more occasions when multiple Juve attacks had him busy in the first half.

But the visitors found a way past the Polish goalkeeper after the hour mark through Milik who struck low into the bottom right corner, leaving Skorupski no chance.

Bologna moved up to eighth in the standings on 45 points, 10 adrift of Atalanta in seventh.

Sitting third in Serie A, Massimiliano Allegri’s side are three points clear of challengers Inter, AC Milan and AS Roma in the search for Champions League football.

With six games remaining in the league, Allegri will be hoping his side can do enough to secure their place among Europe’s elites next season.
