You sir are about as idiotic a player as I’ve seen in a long time.

I’ve said it before so many times, but honestly what is he good at? Horrific positioning, gets bullied physically, can’t tackle players running at him, slow and weak aerially. Decent passer from the back, but that is nowhere near enough. Please get Zapata or Caldara back and make this moron 4th choice, and then please proceed to sell in the summer.

he's always been a hothead and this is exactly what cost us today. absolutely no need to go into dybala as dybala had no chance of scoring or shooting at that point but musacchio just lost his head again... he's a solid sub, but it's time to start caldara now

It wasn't a great play by Musacchio, but Dybala definitely initiated contact and made a meal out of the contact. Weak penalty.

Yeah, I don't know what the rules say, but refs tend to be reasonable rather than treat situations like a bot when they get a good look at it.
They'll dismiss handball if it seems that the ball went for the hand instead of vice versa or if the hand movement seemed natural. They'll take into account goal threat. They'll even give benefit of doubt, which they probably did with Sandro's handball incident.

Musacchio went for the ball. Dybala didn't. He reached for Musacchio's leg.
If Dybala was the defender then some refs would've seen that as a foul from him.

I don't blame the ref for falling for it initially, but how could they award Dybala/Juve with a penalty after seeing the replays?

If he were a little clever he cudve gotten a foul for himself using D10... go in with arms up and let his elbow dig into you.

There was no need for the lunge, simply run up to him making contact (its a contact sport, just dont be dumb abt it) with upper body and thrust the guy away from goal, yr a big man ffs.

On the other side, D10 was shielding the ball & our guy took his leg out... I'd say it was foul.

It was a clear penalty imo, even after that replay angle.

The ball was under Dybala's control, he was in possession. Dybala then recognises Musacchio was charging towards the ball. Dybala does what any smart attacker would do which is put themselves between the ball and the defender.

Musacchio the donkey decides he is going through the attacker to get the ball. Penalty all day long due to sheer naivety from a donkey of a footballer.

i agree. unlike inter one this is a clear penalty(don't know about the offside) and a totally unnecessary one. however i believe there was another penalty incident for us when someone grabbed and pulled piatek's hand?

Yeah the play where mandzukik clearly pulled back samu. IMO it would’ve been a little soft but definitely deserved a look.

It's not a penalty because Dybala is not in control over the ball, it's actually running away from him, he leaves it and blocks Mussachio from reaching it.

Actually it's a foul on Dybala because hes not playing the ball, he blocked the opponent from playing it.

It's a sneaky move but anyone who plays football competitively knows that Dybala is at fault.

Cant wait for Caldara tho

belotti bullied him for the entire game and he gifted them the 2nd goal. not giving the opposition a free shot with your clearance is one of the first thing a defender learns

He struggles one on one a lot. His time as a starter here seems to have come to an end

Zapata is a much better defender. Imo, Zapata, when he is on top form, is actually the best pure defender on the team. He's able to guard both physical and quick players. The issue is that he's not consistent. However, from what I've seen this season, he's a better option to Mussachio.

I think is time to cash in but I guess Zapata might be gone too.

Nope. Conti's clearance was bad but many times that fuckup RB/LBs do. Musa's clearance as awful as it goes especially from a CB. Kind of similar to the piss poor clearance from Zapata against Lazio.

Yup musas was worse, he had a clear view of the field and the header should have at least been upwards not down in the ground.

You could blame all 3 of them (including Dollar), but none were so horrible... such things happen all the time. It's the brilliance of the shot that made the goal (timing, power, accuracy, etc.).
