Video: Weston McKennie scores first ever Juventus goal to draw his side level in Turin derby

Posted by

Juventus have equalised against Torino in the derby at the Allianz Stadium through Weston McKennie.

The Serie A champions found themselves a goal down after nine minutes, with Nicolas N’Koulou firing into the back of the net after some suspect defending from a corner.

With AC Milan already leading the Serie A table, Andrea Pirlo’s men found themselves in dire need of finding an equaliser, and, if possible, a winner.

What a great time this would be for Cristiano Ronaldo to get his 151st career goal.

The Portugal captain, who hit the 750 milestone midweek, often pops up in moments of treachery to make the difference. Juventus fans will be keeping their fingers tightly crossed that he can come up with another big goal this evening.
