Szczęsny’s blunder occurred in the 12th minute of the game when he failed to stop a long-range shot from Sassuolo’s Armand Lauriente. Even though the shot was not deemed particularly threatening, Szczęsny’s error allowed Sassuolo to take the lead, setting the tone for the rest of the game.
Quick Equalizer and a Shocking Defeat
Despite the initial setback, Juventus managed to bring the game back to equilibrium just ten minutes later. However, their hopes of a victory were shattered as Sassuolo unexpectedly took the game away with a 4:2 win. The situation was further exacerbated by an own goal by Federico Gatti in the added time.
The match saw goals from multiple players. For Sassuolo, Lauriente scored in the 12th minute, Domenico Berardi in the 41st, and Andrea Pinamonti in the 82nd minute. The own goal by Gatti in the 90+5th minute further solidified Sassuolo’s lead. On the other hand, a self-goal by Matías Nicolás Viña in the 21st minute and a goal by Federico Chiesa in the 78th minute were the only saving graces for Juventus.
The Impact of Szczęsny’s Error
Szczęsny’s crucial error in the 12th minute was a significant turning point in the match. It set the pace for the game and played a considerable role in Juventus’ loss. Despite a brief revival mid-game, Juventus was unable to overcome Sassuolo’s lead, which was cemented by an unfortunate own goal in the final moments of the match.
First Loss of the Season
This defeat marked Juventus’ first loss of the season, a result of three glaring errors, including Szczęsny’s missed save and the bizarre late own goal.
