On a center from the right from Cuadrado, Kostic takes over with a cross volley which falls at the feet of the Pole, alone near the goal line. He just has to push the ball into the goal with his knee (0-1). In an unexciting first half, Juventus will gradually lose their grip on the match and see Fiorentina pick up the score thanks to a goal from Kouamé (1-1, 29th). The striker is launched deep after a corner from Juve. He appears alone in front of Perin and deceives the latter. Juventus who could even have returned to the locker room with a goal behind.
