Juventus midfielder Juan Cuadrado has urged the team to continue working hard after his second-half header completed a comeback victory over Benevento.
The 2-1 win lifted Massimiliano Allegri’s side to within a point of leaders Napoli
Benevento, rooted to the foot of the table after losing all 12 of their league games this season, stunned the home crowd in the 19th minute when Amato Ciciretti’s free kick put them in front.
But after Gonzalo Higuain had volleyed Juve level on his 50th Serie A appearance for the club, man of the match Cuadrado nodded home the winner.
The Colombian was pleased with the result, telling Juve’s official website: “Benevento came here to play well and they caused some problems for us.
“But the most important thing today was the result, and we managed to get it in the bag. I’m happy about the goal. I thank God and Alex Sandro for the cross.
“We hope to continue in this way. We have to keep on working hard to pick up victories and keep ourselves in the top spots.”
