Serie A

Juventus 1-0 Spezia

Alvaro Morata scored the game’s only goal as in-form Juventus boosted their bid to qualify for the Champions League with a victory over Spezia.

Massimiliano Allegri’s side headed into the clash at the Allianz Stadium on a 13-game unbeaten streak in the league.

And took the lead when Morata struck in the first half.

Spezia rarely troubled their hosts, barring an Emmanuel Gyasi second-half chance.

Juve moved six points clear of fifth-placed Atalanta, who fell to a 1-0 defeat at Roma on Saturday.

The Bianconeri are just five points adrift of leaders Inter, while they were four behind Napoli and Milan ahead of their clash later on Sunday.

A wayward Ivan Provedel passes after 21 minutes allowed Dusan Vlahovic and Manuel Locatelli to combine through the middle, with the latter finding Morata to slot home coolly.

Provider somewhat atoned for his mistake with a smart stop to deny Juan Cuadrado.

An unmarked Gyasi should have restored parity after the interval.

But he could only head into Wojciech Szczesny’s hands from close range following Salvador Ferrer’s delivery.

Spezia continued to grow into the encounter as they searched for a first league goal in three appearances in Piemonte, with Szczesny forced to keep Kevin Agudelo’s effort.

But Allegri’s side defended resolutely to see victory and make it 14 games unbeaten in Serie A.

This is their longest such streak since December 2019 under Maurizio Sarri.

Goal:

JUVE LEAD! A clumsy clearance by Provedel falls straight to a Bianconeri shirt in midfield, allowing Vlahovic and Locatelli to combine and play in Morata on the left side of the box. The Spanish striker stays calm and fires home the opening goal past the goalkeeper’s despairing dive. Juventus 1-0 Spezia.

What lies ahead for Juventus and Spezia?

Juventus will be facing Sampdoria on 12th March.

Meanwhile, Spezia will host Cagliari in Serie-A.
