Bonucci sinks and drags all of Juve with it: with Benfica your European sunset

Juventus were ‘betrayed’ once again by those ‘senators’ who should have made a difference. Bonucci (in addition to Cuadrado) is among the negative protagonists of Da Luz’s defeat and the departure of the Bianconeri from the Champions League.

Bonucci’s clumsy attempt to avoid Benfica’s third goal after having ‘punctured’ the defensive intervention.

When in 60 Happy decides to remove the captain from the field, Bonucci AND square (the author of that naive and unacceptable penalty miss that ruined everything) is a clear sign. He took two of the most disappointing protagonists of the challenge out of the fray with the benfica. It had to be the most classic ‘inside or out’ occasion, the one when you sell your skin dearly and cling to your pride. It turned out to be just the nth stage of an ordeal and a severe rejection for those big names who betrayed (again) the ‘old lady’.

In games like this you need the experience and personality of those who are used to fighting certain battles, but have failed. And the fact that the coach approaches Juventus 19, consoles him, tries to make the choice of Alex Sandro not weigh more than it should (but didn’t he get injured?) It’s like turning the knife in the wound. “Fundamental even without playing, it is an asset”so said Bonucci’s coach who in Monza (another open wound from a humiliating knockout) was left out “because he needed to rest”.

Bonucci opens his arms: the Juventus defender and captain loses sight of the action and leaves a void in which Benfica slips.

Nothing personal, it seems to tell him when he approaches and shakes his hand while walking with his head down, he will sink into Da Luz’s bench… even because shortly afterwards the coach will start doing some math (thanks to the 7-2 result between Paris Saint-Germain and Maccabi Haifa) to maintain at least one goal difference to still have hope in the Europa League. milik AND McKennie they will make the outcome proportions (4-3) less bitter, the entry of new forces such as Iling-Junior they will feed regrets (and anger at leaving the Champions League).

Bonucci is out of action, the opponent cut behind him and made any attempt to recover the defender impossible.

The captain is there, sucked into a black hole of emotions and faced with the reality of facts: from the ‘elderly’ Allegri he had some decisive mistakes, from the boys (the ex-Chelsea and Soul√©) he received mental and physical energies, courage and pride. , even the belief at some point that 4-4 was a possible miracle.

That’s enough to leave Bonucci on the grid, he’s been there since the beginning of the season accompanied by controversy for performances. “Leo is the captain – admitted Allegri, who in recent days has dampened the controversy over the player -, a player with personality and like everyone else he must be managed..

And so the indecision Brahim Diaz at San Siro (in the 2-0 defeat against Milan) combines with the inadequacy shown by Rafa Silva’s goal that cuts behind the static defender, in a cast, who misreads the development of the action, makes a mistake at the time of surgery, he opens his arms and is surprised, he tries to recover, but it’s too late. Szczesny is mocked with a scoop).

The Juventus coach greets the captain, who was substituted in the early stages of the second half at Da Luz.

The injury of Bremer he left Allegri no choice, Bonucci looked like the right player to lead the defense at this point. Camp reality told once again. After less than a quarter of an hour, a disagreement between Danilo and the captain (who lets the ball bounce) opens the way for Rafa Silva, who fortunately misses the bianconeri. There is also something wrong with the Lusitanians’ advantage: in Fernandez’s left cross, in the area under the goal, Antonio Silva cuts in anticipation of Gatti under Bonucci’s eyes.
