Juventus took an early lead with a goal scored by Moise Kane at the sixteenth minutes of the game. The striker only goal gave the old ladies the victory against Jose Mourinho. The away team tried all their best to Equalize the goal, but all efforts proved abortive.

Jose Mourinho made some tactical changes during the second half of the game, but it couldn't yield a positive result. They missed the only chance of scoring after Jordan Veretout missed a penalty at 44 minutes.

Tammy Abraham was brought down inside the 18 yard box by Juventus defenders after he managed to dribble and pass the both defenders, his teammate picked up the ball, but could not score a goal before Tammy Abraham quickly fired a shot inside the net when the ball bounced towards his side.

The center referee quickly sounded the whistle for a penalty without waiting for the outcome of the incident. Fans condemned the center referee for taking such decisions against As Roma. He was expected to allow the goal to stand because the Penalty was missed.

The VAR and Center Referee allowed the Penalty to be played because Henrikh Mkhitaryan was in Offside position when he collected the loose ball from Tammy Abraham after was fouled inside the box. If the goal was allowed to stand, Henrikh Mkhitaryan would have been charged for being in an offside position and the goal will be cancelled.
