Juve moves top of Serie A after beating 9-man Chievo
    2018-January-29  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

JUVENTUS moved to the top of Serie A after struggling to beat nine-man Chievo Verona 2-0 Saturday.

Sami Khedira and Gonzalo Higuain scored for the six-time defending champion after Samuel Bastien and Fabrizio Cacciatore were sent off.

Juventus moved two points ahead of Napoli, which hosts Bologna later.

“We need to be quicker in building play, we need to play at a higher tempo ... and we need to improve our quality, playing more vertically and less horizontally,” Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri said.

Neither side created anything of note before Chievo midfielder Bastien was sent off in the 37th minute, following two yellow cards in quick succession.

Matters went from bad to worse for Chievo shortly after the hour when it was given another needless red card. Cacciatore continued complaining to the referee after not being awarded a free kick following a crunching tackle. The referee told the defender to go to the sidelines as the medical staff had come on to treat him and he was then seen clearly making a handcuffs gesture.

The referee showed him a straight red card.

“We certainly did silly mistakes and that punished us,” Chievo coach Rolando Maran said. “But I’m very angry about Cacciatore’s sending off. The referee told him he had to go off, but the medical staff had never reached him. ... Then the player was wrong, but the mistake was brought about by the wrong decision, in my opinion, by the referee.”

The handcuffs gesture was made famous by then Inter Milan coach Jose Mourinho in February 2010 when he protested a decision to send off one of his players against Sampdoria. Mourinho was banned for three matches and fined 40,000 euros (US$50,000). A similar gesture cost Empoli defender Lorenzo Tonelli three matches in 2016 after being sent off.(SD-Agencies)
