Juventus 2-1 Parma: 5 Hits and Flops from the game | Serie A 2019-20
- Juventus edged out Parma 2-1 to consolidate their place at the top of the league table.
#4 Flop - Dejan Kulusevski
Dejan Kulusevski didn't have a great introduction at a ground where he will play next season. For those who don't know, Kulusevski is Juventus' January signing who is currently on loan at Parma, and he had a forgettable night in Turin as nothing he tried on the day actually came to fulfillment.
Starting in his favored right-wing spot, the youngster had a lot of opportunities to do what he does best - take a touch, look up and find that killer pass for which he is known for. Unfortunately, the 19-year-old couldn't do that and that is the reason why he was substituted in the second period.
Kulusevski, attacking wise, played two key passes, while defensively he only managed to make two interceptions. All in all, it wasn't his best of performances.
#3 Hit - Andreas Cornelius
Andreas Cornelius didn't start the game for Parma but because of an unfortunate injury to striker Roberto Inglese early on, the 26-year-old Dane came on and although he didn't have much of an impact in the first period, he came into his own in the second.
Firstly, he equalized for the away side with a sumptuous header and then, he was also having a positive impact in the build-up play for the visitors. He was holding the ball quite well for his team during transitions and also won almost every aerial duel against Leonardo Bonucci.
Furthermore, the Danish forward played one key pass on the day and had a passing accuracy of 81.3%, which is not bad for a striker. However, his performance didn't see Parma take anything away from Turin.Published 20 Jan 2020, 12:21 IST
