Juventus narrowly avoided a shocking defeat to salvage a 1-1 draw against relegated Salernitana

Juventus almost avoided a catastrophic defeat, drawing 1-1 with already relegated Salernitana.

Juventus failed to find their footing early on, allowing Salernitana to grab an unexpected lead through Niccolò Pierozzi’s header from a corner.

Wojciech Szczesny made important saves to keep Juventus in the game, but the hosts were jeered off the field at halftime for their poor effort.
