Juventus teenager Moise Kean sets Serie A record
A shot from Joao Cancelo looked to be on target but Kean was alert and clever enough to divert the ball away from the dive of goalkeeper Emiliano Viviano.
Should Juve avoid defeat at SPAL, they will become Serie A champions for the eighth year in a row, breaking the league’s record for the fastest title triumph.
Kean’s emergence has helped Juve’s sprint towards the finish line, with star striker Cristiano Ronaldo having recently missed games due to injury.
The Portugal captain was rested against SPAL but, as he did with a late winner against AC Milan last week, Kean has filled in admirably.
Kean was the subject of alleged racist abuse during a Serie A game at Cagliari, in which he scored, with Juve defender Leonardo Bonucci criticised for suggesting the striker was partly for blame.
The 19-year-old has also broken into the Italy team this year, scoring in back-to-back Euro 2020 qualifiers during March’s international break.
