Juventus held as Chiesa is sent off

Federico Chiesa joined Juventus on an initial two-year loan, before a potential permanent move

Juventus winger Federico Chiesa was sent off on his debut as the Serie A champions were held to a 1-1 draw at newly promoted Crotone on Saturday.

Chiesa, signed from Fiorentina in the transfer window, was given a straight red card for a studs-up challenge on Luca Cigarini on the hour.

Juventus saw an Alvaro Morata goal ruled out for offside late on.

Crotone had taken the lead with a Simy penalty before Morata levelled from Chiesa’s assist nine minutes later.

Juve, missing Cristiano Ronaldo after he tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday, have eight points from four games while Crotone picked up their first point.
