Juventus’ hopes as dark horse title challengers in Serie A took a blow today as the Italian giants dropped points at home to 13th-placed Bologna on Saturday. Juventus will be disappointed in drawing Bologna 1-1, but it could’ve been worse as a 95th minute equalizer from Dusan Vlahovic salvaged a point for the Old Lady.
Vlahovic’s late goal was one of the rare times where the assist was better than the goal itself. Check out this Álvaro Morata bicycle kick assist.

The kits were prettier than Saturday’s game. Bologna had two players get red carded in the span of 30 seconds late in the second half after a VAR review and skirmish with the refereee.

That might be the angriest I’ve ever seen a referee before.
Bologna’s goal in the 52nd minute from Marko Arnautovic gave the midtable side the lead that it clung to for 45 minutes.

With five games left in the season Juventus sits fourth in the table and eight points behind league leaders AC Milan. Juventus (63 points) will look to hang on to the final Champions League spot in Serie A but has a pack consisting of Roma (57), Fiorentina (56) and Lazio (56) not too far behind.
