When Bayern Munich scored two goals Juventus fans were in a great disappointment however Stefano Sturaro took the Juventus game under his control and tied the game in the second half which the first one was dominated by Bayern Munich. The score would be totally different if Bayern would not miss that almost free goal in the 13th minute of the game. The experienced goal keeper Buffon did a lot for his team in the second half and this made him one of the other outstanding players of the awesome soccer game. But Allegri’s moves to substitute Sturaro and Alvaro Morata at least helped Juventus to tie the game.

Stefano Sturaro was the Star of Juventus

Massimiliano Allegri sent on Hernanes for Claudio Marchisio at half-time but the desired impact was not forthcoming as Robben made it 2-0 10 minutes into the second period. Thiago Alcântara’s pass sparked a three-man breakaway and Lewandowski, who got away with a foul on Bonucci in the buildup, used Müller as a decoy and fed the winger, who cut inside and curled a left-foot shot around Bonucci and Buffon.

Dybala saw a free-kick deflected over the bar but the Bayern pressure kept coming and Lewandowski sent a diving header wide.

Out of nowhere, though, Juve pulled a goal back when Kimmich’s error presented the ball to Mandzukic and he slid it through for Dybala to take a touch and finish.

Mandzukic was fortunate to escape punishment after twice pushing his head towards Lewandowski as the two squared up but it did not disrupt Juve’s new-found rhythm, Juan Cuadrado denied by Manuel Neuer’s fingertips and Pogba curling just over.

Allegri sent on Sturaro in the 69th minute and Alvaro Morata in the 75th and these changes paid off immediately, as Morata headed Mandzukic’s pass nicely across the six-yard box for a lunging Sturaro to finish via the crossbar.
