MILAN: Juventus lost 3-0 at home to AC Milan on Sunday and dropped to fifth place to put their chances of qualifying for the Champions League at risk. That same weekend, Juventus insisted on pushing a European Super League competition that would guarantee it is a place among the elite clubs.

Juventus, who finished the Serie A title nine years last weekend by Inter Milan had long under control, slipped from the qualifying positions of the Champions League. It is one point behind fourth-place Napoli, with three rounds remaining in the Italian league.

The Bianconeri, along with Barcelona and Real Madrid, increased criticism of UEFA on Saturday, denouncing « threats » for them have refused to withdraw the prospect of a breakaway competition.

The other nine clubs that formed the unfortunate Super League three weeks ago accepted a settlement on Friday that was fined by UEFA and in which Champions League structure remains open.

Milan were one of those clubs, and the win increased his chances of returning to the Champions League as the Rossoneri tied on points with second-placed Atalanta, who previously won 5-2 in Parma were.

« I knew we would get into trouble, but now we all have to get out together, » said Andrea Pirlo, who was appointed Juventus coach in the off-season despite the fact that s he had never trained at senior level before.

« I had another project in mind, I tried to work according to certain principles, sometimes we had to adapt, but I am convinced that I have an excellent team at my disposal have. If something goes wrong, I take responsibility for it. ”

The game in Turin was a head-to-head battle for the top four, with both Milan and Juve scoring the same number of points.

After Atalanta and Napoli had already won this weekend, stood the teams in the Champions League playoffs under pressure.

And it was Milan that broke the impasse during the break in the first half. Juventus goalkeeper Wojciech Szczęsny failed to properly take a free kick and Brahim Diaz managed to control and cut the ball before rolling it into the top right corner.

Milan would have had their lead in the second half in the 13th minute can double when Giorgio Chiellini received a penalty for a handball. But Szczęsny made up for his earlier mistake by saving Franck Kessié’s free-kick.

Szczęsny had no chance in the 78th minute when Ante Rebić shot a powerful 25-yard hit into the top right corner.

And Milan sealed the result four minutes later when Fikayo Tomori scored a free kick for his first goal for Milan since being loaned by Chelsea in January.

The defender’s goal also means Milan have the better head against Juventus -an head balance – after he lost the first game between the teams with 1: 3. This is the first tiebreaker if the teams are tied at the end of the season.

Matteo Pessina doubled Atalanta’s lead shortly after his move and his substitute colleague Luis Muriel scored twice.

Another substitute, Aleksei Miranchuk, scored the ultimate goal of Atalanta. Ruslan Malinovskyi opened the gate in the 12th minute.

Cagliari made a potentially decisive step towards safety with a 3-1 win at Benevento and brought his opponent closer to a quick return to Serie B.

Cagliari moved four points ahead of Benevento and the last relegation zone. Turin are level on points with Cagliari, who played less after a 1-1 draw in Hellas Verona.
