Juventus narrowly avoided a shocking defeat as they managed to salvage a 1-1 draw against already-relegated Salernitana.

Despite hitting the woodwork three times, Juventus struggled to find their foot early on, allowing Salernitana to take a surprise lead through Niccolò Pierozzi’s header from a corner.

Wojciech Szczesny made crucial saves to keep Juventus in the game, but the hosts were jeered off the pitch at halftime due to their lackluster performance.

In the second half, Max Allegri made a triple substitution, bringing fresh energy into Juventus.

They pushed for an equalizer, with Federico Chiesa and Dusan Vlahovic coming close to scoring.

However, it was Adrien Rabiot who finally leveled the score in stoppage time, sliding in at the far post to convert Manuel Locatelli’s flick-on from a corner.

Despite late chances for both sides, including a thunderous strike from Fabio Miretti that rattled the underside of the bar, the match ended in a stalemate.

The draw extends Juventus’ winless streak to five matches in the Serie A.
