Guillermo Ochoa rampages in Serie A! The Mexican star, who regularly shines at the World Cups, helped Salernita to a 1-1 draw with Turin by pulling out David Zima’s leg. “We absolutely domited. We played great, but Ochoa was even better today,” Ivan Juric, the Bulls coach, said in front of the 37-year-old goaltender. The spectacularity of the match was largely affected by the failure of VAR, due to which the half-time interval stretched to twenty-five minutes.
David Zima approached his first match of the year with great enthusiasm. The tiol team defender started with a right stopper in a 3-5-2 formation and was noticeable on the field from the first whistle.
Already in the fifth minute, Zim was not too far behind and could open the scoring after a corner. The student from Olomouc confirmed his attacking skills a few minutes later when he reached for a shot from outside the box, which was blocked by the home team’s defense at the next corner. After him, the representative of the stopper tried to score with his foot from close range. However, he never turned into an experienced Mexican.
Zima also showed his constructive play. With a great pass, he found Sasha Lukic, who gave the ball to Nemanja Radonic in an even better position. However, he did not come to Ochou either.
“At half-time we should have led four, five zero and the game would have been over. On the one hand, I’m glad that we created so many chances, but on the other hand, it’s just unbelievable how ineffective we were,” Ivan Juric despaired, who was only pleased with Antonio Sabria’s strike, which put Turin ahead.
In addition, after the change of sides, a very strange situation occurred. The VAR monitor did not work on the playing field and could not be repaired for many minutes. So, after a ten minute wait, Chief Referee Andrea Colombo called both eleven players in and let them know that on-field verdicts would apply. However, the now non-standard situation lasted only the first three minutes of the second half. Technicians were able to sort out the problem and the match was again followed on video.
This was the result of Turin’s weak entry, culmiting in a poor start by Mergim Vojvoda. As a result, Tonny Vile took possession of the ball in his own half, who equalized the score with an accurate shot after a long solo. “I observed these signs of loss of concentration in the players already in the warm-up. I also let them know in the locker room that I don’t like their attitude,” Jurich shook his head.
David Zima’s run came to an end in the 63rd minute shortly after, when he was heavily fouled by the equalizer scorer. The 22-year-old stopper was quickly knocked down, but just in case, he was replaced by Coffey Gigi.
Zima only watched from the bench as his teammates gradually beat the nimble Mexican, who made seven saves throughout the game.
“He is a huge reinforcement for us. He is not only an excellent goalkeeper, but above all an outstanding persolity with great experience,” praised the new Salernita player Davide Nicola.
Turin had to accept a 1-1 draw for the third time in a row. However, the Bulls continue to stay within reach of the fight for European competition, while having a significant lead over the rescue teams.
“We’ve come a long way in the last year and I don’t see any reason why we can’t play in Europe. We will do everything in our power for this,” promises Juric, whose ward is waiting for Milan in the 1/8 fils of the cup on Wednesday.
