Juventus welcomed Frosinone to their stadium with the aim of returning to victory after three consecutive league games without a win. For their part, the visiting team has not won a match for a month.

Coach Massimiliano Allegri was finally able to deploy the attacking duo of Federico Chiesa and Dusan Vlahovic while Eusebio Di Francesco relied on the technical brilliance of Argentine ace Matias Soulé, on loan from the Bianconeri.

The match immediately started very well for the Bianconeri who found the opening goal in the 3rd minute of the game with Vlahovic taking full advantage of a low cross from his teammate Weston McKennie, who brilliantly controlled a pass from the defense.

Tthe equalizer came in the 14th minute. The Juventus defence, although well deployed in the penalty area, appeared distracted, leaving the opposing striker, Walid Cheddira, completely alone who, with a precise header, beat the goalkeeper Szczesny.

Following the draw, Frosinone began to manage ball possession better. So much so that in the 27th minute, the goal gave the guests the temporary lead. The goal was scored by Marco Brescianini who made a central insertion, receiving the ball from a teammate and immediately finished a precise shot just under the crossbar.

Vlahovic netted the equalizer as he quickly finished with his left foot, beating the opposing goalkeeper Michele Cerofolini to the far post.

Similar to the first half, Juventus were unable to manage the ball fluidly and attempted to take advantage of individual initiatives as well as free kicks, making the most of their men's ability in this respect.

Frosinone did not give up its style of play based on ball possession and quick triangulations on the sides of the pitch, coming close to potentially scoring an additional lead on a couple of occasions.

Allegri had to make changes to his team's lineup. He had to replace the injured Adrien Rabiot and Weston McKennie due to muscle problems. Federico Chiesa was later replaced by Kenan Yıldız.
