Dusan Vlahovic was the hero for Juventus as they beat Salernitana 2-1 on Serie A Matchday 19 to keep the pressure on Inter at the top.

The Granata took the lead in the first half through Giulio Maggiore – the hosts attacked down the flanks, and Loum Tchaouna cut the ball back to the Italian, who finished well. However, the 25-year-old was given his marching orders 10 minutes into the second half, which offered the Old Lady the upper hand.

Juventus got back into the game through Samuel Iling-Junior. A dangerous cross into the box came to Vlahovic, but the Serbian scuffed the chance, and the English winger was able to finish instead. Two minutes from the end of the game, Vlahovic would make up for his previously missed chance, scoring a great header and securing the points for the Bianconeri.

It means that Juventus stay two points behind league leaders Inter and continue to keep the Scudetto race interesting.
