THE BALLOON – Attention, Benfica: Juventus returns to triumphs (Italy)

Juventus received and beat Spezia (2-0), on the fourth day of the Italian championship. The Turin team is, let’s remember, Benfica’s opponent in the Champions League.

And it was a night of goalscorers in northern Italy. Dusan Vlahovic (9′) opened the scoring with a superb free kick (read the related news) and Arkadiusz Milik (90+2′), signed from Marseille, jumped off the bench to make an impression.

In the other match of the evening, Mário Rui was on the bench for Napoli, who drew 1-1 against promoted Lecce. Elmas (27′) scored the Neapolitan goal, with Colombo (31′) to restore the equality, who at 25′ had missed a penalty.
