10′ De Sciglio puts un another cross which must be the third for him but once again its low quality and it bounces all the way to Cuadrado, who hits it first time to Morata who’s shot is saved but it should be put in from there.

13′ Capoue puts up a good fight but cant win the ball in Juventus half.

14′ A shocking attack is shown by Juventus as Morata is about to shoot but then Cuadrado came in to shoot and in the end the only result is Vlaholovic on the floor with a knock.

16′ Cuadrado swings in a corner but its cleared and there will be a Villareal goal kick.

27′ Capoue gets in the way of the corner that was going for the front post.

28′ Capoue puts in a low and unpowerful cross that doesn’t do enough to get past the first man and the cross from Villarreal’s corner is not up to standard.

33′ De Sciglio is taken down in the corner but the referee thinks nothings of it and the game continues.

35′ Juventus line up the corner and Cuadrado takes it Vlaholovic gets on to it from De Ligt’s header and Rulli make another save that keeps Villareal in the game for now.
