"No Ronaldo, no party". Juventus lose at home to SPAL and postpone title party

Juventus, with minimal services and without almost all the holders, suffered today the second loss in the Italian Serie A of soccer, at home of the SPAL, by 2-1, and it delayed the conquest of the title.

'Juve', coming from a draw in Amsterdam with Ajax (1-1) in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, came into Ferrara to know that a draw was enough to celebrate the eighth consecutive 'scudetto' at 32 .ª of the 38 days of the championship.

Without nine of the 11 starters in the Netherlands, among them Cristiano Ronaldo, and maintaining only João Cancelo and Bentancur in the team, the Italian heptacampeã was always at the mercy of SPAL, despite having even scored first.

Young Moise Kean added to the Turin team in the 30th minute to divert a shot from João Cancelo but SPAL was always more dangerous and dominant and took advantage of it in the second half of the game.

Bonifazi tied it in the 49th minute after a corner kick and Floccari made the 74th minute of what he wanted from central Gozzi Iweru, who at 17 years made his debut for Juve's main team to make the 2-1 .

The defeat, the second in Serie A, after their 2-0 defeat of Genoa, leave Massimiliano Allegri's side waiting for Napoli's result and can still celebrate the title on Sunday outside the pitch.

A scenario that will happen if the Neapolitans do not win on their visit to Chievo on this 32nd day. The 'vecchia signora' has 84 points, while Naples are second with 64, minus one game.
