After the 18th round of the Italian League, Juventus approached Inter, the leaders in the table. Torino beat Roma at home in the most humble of terms.

This was the last match of 2023 in the Italian League. Juventus intends to take advantage of Inter's stumble on Friday and reduce the loss to leaders Milan. On the other hand, if Roma wins, it will move to fifth place in the Italian League.

Wojciech Szczęsny was in the home team's starting line-up, while Arkadiusz Milik was on the bench. Nikola Zalewski has played for Roma since the beginning.

The visitors had a great start to the match when, in the fourth minute, Brian Cristante shot from the penalty area. The ball bounced off Dusan Vlahovic and hit Szczesny's post, who was helpless in this situation.

The aforementioned Juventus striker was active from the start. Vlahovic had several shots in the first half. The most effective goal came in the 29th minute, when he shot a rebound from outside the penalty area outside the goal. Ten minutes ago, a sniper in the penalty area found space to shoot easily. Gianluca Mancini's sacrificial intervention saved Roma.

In the 31st minute, Paulo Dybala appeared and shot from the penalty area with the outside of his foot and passed the post. Juventus should have taken the lead at half-time. In the 43rd minute, Filip Kostic shot from the penalty area, and Ivan Ndika headed the ball off the goal line.

The hosts entered the second half in great form. Two minutes into the second half, Vlahovic played back-heel, and Rabiot found space between the goalkeeper's leg and the post in a one-on-one situation.

During the drive, the Torino team fell behind. AS Roma attacked but were unable to pose a serious threat to Wojciech Szczęsny. Not much happened in front of the goals. The Romans banged their heads against the wall for long minutes.

In just the 71st minute, the visitors scored their first shot on target in the match. Szczesny confidently defended Dybala's powerful left-footed attempt from a long distance. In the following minutes, Roma could not do much. It was the hosts who kept the ball in the visitors' half for long minutes.

A quarter of an hour before the end, Arkadiusz Milik appeared on the field, but he did not show his attacking skills. In the end, Roma looked for an equalizer. But the Torino side should have wrapped up the game when, in the 84th minute, Federico Chiesa passed into the penalty area and Weston McKennie scored first. Rui Patricio hit the ball instinctively

The locals had a modest advantage until the end, and just before the midway point of the season, they were two points behind leaders Inter.
