Juventus and Bologna played out a 1-1 draw in the Serie A as Dusan Vlahovic cancelled out Lewis Ferguson’s opener.

Having beaten Udinese 3-0 in their Serie A opener, Juventus were keen to make it two wins out of two when they faced Bologna.

However, they were behind after just 24 minutes as former Aberdeen midfielder Ferguson put Bologna ahead.

Vlahovic thought he had equalised in the 54th minuted but a VAR review called offside on Adrien Rabiot in the build-up to the Serbian’s strike.

This didn’t stop the forward though, who netted in the 80th minute to rescue a point for Juventus in front of their home fans.

Dusan Vlahovic’s strike rescued a point for Juventus at home to Bologna in Serie A action

The forward had previously seen a goal ruled out, with Adrien Rabiot proven to be offside

The result sees Juventus sit fifth in Italy’s top flight, with Bologna getting their first point of the season after a 2-0 defeat to AC Milan last week.

It’s all to play for in the opening stages of the season, with Vlahovic scoring in both of his opening games.

He has been heavily linked with a move to Chelsea this summer, but the transfer looks unlikely to happen before Friday’s deadline.

Romelu Lukaku was also reportedly considered by Juventus, but the Belgian appears to be on his way to Serie A rivals AS Roma for a reunion with Jose Mourinho.

Juventus travel to Empoli next as they look to return to winning ways.
