Dusan Vlahovic played a pivotal role in Juventus’ success, scoring a second-half brace, while Gleison Bremer sealed the deal with a late header. The win extends Juventus’ unbeaten streak to 16 league matches, showcasing their formidable form.

Massimiliano Allegri, Juventus’ manager, expressed optimism about their chances in the title race, stating, “There is nothing impossible in football. We must have that belief in our minds that we can do something extraordinary and make the seemingly impossible become possible.” Allegri emphasized the importance of giving their all and acknowledging the efforts of competing teams.

Despite an early challenge from Lecce’s defense, Juventus broke the deadlock in the 59th minute when Vlahovic skillfully placed the ball into the far corner. Vlahovic continued his impact, doubling Juventus’ lead nine minutes later by redirecting a header from Weston McKennie.

Reflecting on his performance, Vlahovic shared, “I am happy, especially as I got to help the team. I could not have scored those goals without the team; we hope to continue like this.” Bremer put the finishing touch on the victory with a well-timed header from a set piece, securing the three points for Juventus.

While Lecce attempted a late comeback, Nicola Sansone’s effort was denied by Juventus goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny with a remarkable one-handed save in stoppage time.
