Matthijs De Ligt Scores Own Goal On His Full Debut For Juventus

Juventus defender Matthijs de Ligt scored an unfortunate own goal in a pre-season game against Inter Milan on Wednesday afternoon.

The 19-year-old, who made his debut on Sunday as a second-half substitute against Tottenham, was given a first start by Maurizio Sarri earlier.

He started well alongside experienced centre-back Leonardo Bonucci, but in the 10th minute, his luck went from bad to worse in the famous black and white.


Inter Milan midfielder Stefano Sensi whipped the ball in from a corner and a flick on from Roberto Gagliardini wrong footed de Ligt.

The ball rebounded off his shin and into the net, leaving goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny helpless between the sticks.


Juventus' new number four played 28 minutes against Tottenham at the weekend, where Lucas Moura would once again prove his pitfall.

Moura continued to torment de Ligt following his showing in the Champions League last season, scoring just two minutes after the former Ajax defender came on as a substitute.

De Ligt will earn a whopping £416,000-a-week at Juventus if certain add-ons are achieved in his stint with the Bianconeri.


In fact, the player has a £135.6 million release clause in his current deal at The Old Lady, according to The Guardian.

Do you think he is worth the cash?
