When Dusan Vlahovic moved from Fiorentina to Juventus in January, the chance to play in the Champions League was a huge factor. But how would the young Serb fare against Europe’s elite? How would he handle the step up?

Well, we only had to wait 33 seconds because that’s how long it took Vlahovic to run through the Villareal defence, bring down a long ball from Adrien Rabiot and drill a shot while running away from goal, past Rulli in the Villareal goal and inside the far post.

33 seconds!

Vlahovic wheeled away, making a mouth gesture with his hands to silence his doubters.

The game itself finished 1-1, Dani Parejo levelling on 66 minutes.

It was a decent result for Juve, but not for Weston McKennie or Adrien Rabiot.

McKennie suffered a suspected double fracture after a heavy tackle and is likely out for the season. Rabiot, aside from the pass for Vlahovic’s goal, will be remembered for letting his man get away from him for the equalising goal and being fortunate not to be red carded after a bad foul on Chukwueze.

The second leg takes place in three weeks.

Serie A’s 2022 – 2023 season will kick off on the weekend of August 13th, with a break scheduled from November 13th to the start of January to accommodate the Qatar World Cup. That’s whether the Azzurri qualify for the world cup or not.

Talking about qualification, Azzurri coach Roberto Mancini has been arranging informal dinners with regional groups of his squad members. On Monday evening, he broke bread with players based around Milan and Bergamo, continuing on to meet with players in Turin and in Rome.

The aim is to discuss the importance of the upcoming World Cup qualifiers, with the game against North Macedonia in a month’s time.

A full programme of Serie A games this weekend, here are the fixtures:
