Juventus hosted Frosinone in the quarter-finals of the Coppa Italia 2023/24 and the match saw some momentous incidents under the guidance of referee Sacchi.
Only 9 minutes into the match, Juventus won a penalty. Miretti barged into the penalty area and was reportedly brought down by two Frosinone players, according to match officials. The referee immediately pointed to the penalty spot, a decision confirmed by the VAR.
By the 20th minute mark, Juventus midfielder Locatelli saw the first yellow card of the game for his late sliding tackle on Mazzitelli. The referee Sacchi found the intervention worthy of a penalty.
Barely 12 minutes later, another Juventus player Kostic picked up a yellow card, this time for a sliding tackle on Okoli. The incident caused tension within the ranks of the Juventus team.
In the 58th minute, there was more drama to come as Juventus striker Milik had a goal disallowed. Following a corner, Miretti’s volley from the edge of the penalty area was deflected off the Polish forward into the goal, but after a VAR check, the goal was ruled out for offside.
Finally, in the 73rd minute of the match, Frosinone defender Gatti was booked for striking Romagnoli in the face while attempting a bicycle kick in the opposing penalty area. His reckless act garnered him a yellow card from the referee Sacchi.
