Mohamed Salah Hands Juventus First Home Defeat For Two Years

Mohamed Salah’s brace gave Fiorentina a shock 2-1 Coppa Italia semi-final victory in Turin, ending Juventus’ unbeaten home record.

The Egyptian opened the scoring in the semi-final first leg when he collected the ball inside his own half, burst clear of the defence and fired an unstoppable shot into the top far corner in the 11th minute.

Juventus levelled midway through the first half with a much more mundane goal, Fernando Llorente’s header from a Simone Pepe cross going in off the inside of the post.

Fiorentina refused to lie down and nearly regained the lead when Matias Fernandez’s shot was palmed away by Marco Storari and then Jose Basanta headed against the post.

Serie A leaders Juventus had gone 47 matches unbeaten at home since they lost to Bayern Munich in the Champions League in April 2013.
