However, it was Vlahovic’s second goal, a classic poacher’s finish, that turned heads and drew a moment of camaraderie. The goal, which involved a slight touch from Vlahovic on a ball heading towards the net from teammate Weston McKennie’s header, led to a polite apology from the Serbian striker to McKennie. This light-hearted interaction highlighted the team spirit and mutual respect among the Juventus squad members.

The victory was sealed with a third goal, a testament to Juventus’ relentless pursuit and strategic prowess. Gleison Bremer’s powerful header, off a precise cross from Samuel Iling Junior, underscored the team’s depth and ability to capitalize on set-piece opportunities.
