Video: Leonardo Bonucci Converts Penalty to Give Juventus 1-0 Lead vs Lazio

By Steven Moore -

Juventus took the lead against Lazio with their first chance and shot of the match. This came through Leonardo Bonucci from the penalty spot following referee Marco Di Bello reviewing a challenge made by Danilo Cataldi on Alvaro Morata.

The Italian midfielder tried to make a slide tackle inside Lazio’s 18-yard box to prevent the Spaniard from receiving a pass, however, he missed the ball; despite Morata having a poor touch and making the most out of the challenge, this was enough for Di Bello to give the penalty.

Bonucci stepped up and placed a perfect strike into the side-netting of the right side of the goal, out of Pepe Reina’s touch to give Juventus a 1-0 lead.
