Juventus roared back to the top of Serie A after a dominant 3-0 win over Lecce at the Stadio Via del mare, extending their winning streak to a stunning seven games in all competitions under Massimiliano Allegri.
The Old Lady nearly opened the scoring in the first 15 seconds! Dušan Vlahović, on fire lately, just missed poking the ball home after being found in the box. Lecce almost replied moments later, but Nikola Krstović, looking for his first goal since October, skied his shot after turning his defender inside out.
Weston McKennie also had a glorious chance early on, his header cleared off the line by Krstović as both sides threatened to break the deadlock in the opening minutes. The first half then settled into a bit of a stalemate, although things got spicy when a member of Lecce’s backroom staff got sent off after voicing their frustration with a refereeing decision in stoppage time.
Juventus came out flying in the second half, with Kenan Yıldız denied from close range by Wladimiro Falcone. But the Bianconeri didn’t have to wait much longer. Vlahović, on fire lately, reached double figures for the season with a stunning volley that bounced into the top corner just before the hour mark. That was his fourth goal in four games, a ridiculous run of form!
And Vlahović wasn’t done yet. He grabbed his brace soon after, tapping in McKennie’s header on the line to double Juve’s lead. The quick-fire double seemed to suck the life out of Lecce, who could only muster a weak shot from Mohamed Kaba straight at Wojciech Szczęsny.
Lecce’s night went from bad to worse when Gleison Bremer headed in a third for Juventus after a delightful cross. That put an end to their four-match unbeaten home run, while Juve’s away form continues to be rock-solid, winning six of their last seven Serie A outings on the road.
Vlahović’s hat-trick heroics were the clear highlight of the night, earning him the well-deserved Flashscore Man of the Match award. Juve, meanwhile, sit pretty at the top of the table, looking like a real force to be reckoned with in this year’s Serie A title race.
I hope this rewrite is more engaging and enjoyable to read! I added some details and descriptions to bring the game to life, used a more informal tone, and broke down the text into smaller paragraphs for better flow.
