WHO IS GIANMARCO DI BIASE? HERE ARE HIS TECHNICAL CHARACTERISTICS Gianmarco Di Biase is a left wing born in 2005 with a remarkable technique. In this championship, the talent has collected 17 seasonal appearances topped off with 7 goals and 2 assists.

Analysis: Why Juventus and Allegri must play Chiesa on the left

A key reason why Chiesa should play as a left forward is that it would give him more freedom to roam and create in the attacking third. As a left forward, Chiesa would be able to drift centrally and find pockets of space in the opposition's defense. This would allow him to use his dribbling skills and quick feet to create chances for himself and others. Moreover, playing Chiesa as a left forward would also benefit the team as a whole. With him occupying that position, Juventus would be able to overload the left side of the field and create a potent attacking force. This would put pressure on the opposing defense and open up space for other players to exploit, just like we saw at Euro 2020. As Chiesa playing on the left was a key reason why the Azzurri were crowned champions. There ar...

Analysis: Key reasons why Napoli destroyed Juventus 5-1 last night

Napoli secured a historic 5-1 victory over Juventus last night in a match that will go down in the annals of Italian football history. The match was a showcase of Napoli's attacking prowess and tactical brilliance, as well as Juventus' defensive frailties. The key factor that contributed to Napoli's victory was their high press. Napoli's forwards and midfielders worked tirelessly to disrupt Juventus' build-up play and force mistakes. This strategy allowed Napoli to win the ball high up the pitch and launch quick counter-attacks, which proved to be highly effective. Furthermore, Napoli's defense also deserve credit for their performance, they were able to keep the Juventus attack and company at bay, limiting Juventus to just one goal. Overall, Napoli's victory was a result of their...

Paul Pogba or Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, who should Juventus sign this summer?

Despite the additions of Manuel Locatelli last summer and Denis Zakaria this winter, Juventus' midfield still lacks quality. In the midfield, Juve requires both offensive vigour and end product, which is also the cause for Bianconeri's goal-scoring troubles – notably against strong Serie A and Champions League opponents. The most connected names to the Bianconeri this summer are Manchester United's Paul Pogba and Serie A's Sergej Milinkovic-Savic. They aren't the only players Juve might buy to strengthen their midfield, but they are the two biggest names on the market. And it's not without cause. Juve's midfield is in desperate need of a star, and one of these guys maybe that star. Paul Pogba or Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, who should Juventus sign this summer? 1) Creativity It's virtu...

Top 5 controversies to come out of the latest Derby d’Italia

Juventus vs Inter is one of the most controversial games of the season that includes a lot of drama and controversies and some dirty politics involved too. Let's take a look at some of the most controversial decisions of yesterday's game. 1. No Red Card for Lautaro. Lautaro Martinez kicked Manuel Locatelli in the face in the starting moments of the game. It was a kick straight to Locatelli's eye that left him badly injured. He needed bandages to continue playing in the game due to the blood streaming from his head. The decision should be a clear red for Martinez but somehow the referee gave him a yellow. The second moment of the game was when Martinez fouled Chiellini and still was left free to play by the referee as if nothing happened. Juventus fans were fuming and not happy wit...

Who will be next to de Ligt Wednesday vs Villarreal?

The time is now for Juventus. After so many disappointments in the Champions League, Juventus have a chance to put some demons to rest on Wednesday when they take on Atletico Madrid in the Round of 16 in Turin. With the away goals rule no longer being an issue, Juventus must take advantage, especially with it being a home match. As long as they play with the intensity of a final, there should be no issue going through. With so many injuries, you can bet Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri will be scrambling to find the right players to play in a formation that he believes will be victorious against the Yellow Submarines.

Villarreal: What traps should Allegri’s squad worry about?

On December 13th, after the draw was invalidated, necessitating its repetition, it was decided that Villarreal would be Juventus' opponent in the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League. Therefore, I believe this is the right time to get to know more about the current UEFA Europa League champions. The first thing we have to keep in mind is that as much as Villareal are inferior to teams like PSG or Atlético de Madrid, it would be a big mistake to underestimate them. That's because the Spanish team has already shown itself capable of compete with a really good mentality against first-level European opponents, in the UEFA Super Cup game for example, Villareal was able to dominate the entire second half, finishing with more possession than Chelsea. Not to mention the La Liga games against B...

In-depth analysis on Juventus new signing Denis Zakaria

With Juventus set to sign 25-year-old Swiss midfielder, Denis Zakaria for €8m combined, let's dive into what the talented midfielder will bring to Turin. Zakaria primarily operates as a defensive midfielder, he largely emphasizes his game upon the defensive aspect of his position, either winning or receiving the ball in a deep position of the field and quickly progressing it further to more attacking-minded players. The heat-map below shows Zakaria's average position on the field, like I previously said, he generally gets the ball deep in the field and doesn't often find himself in advanced positions, rather staying back to always cover the defense. Within this current season, Zakaria is averaging 1.5 tackles per game, 1.2 intercepts and 1.1 clearances. Relatively decent figures for a ...

In-depth analysis on Vlahovic who’s joining Juventus

With Juventus set to sign the 21-year-old Serbian striker for a reported fee of €75m, we will analyze the Serbian's qualities and how he will fit into the Juventus lineup. Vlahovic is already one of Europe's best strikers, scoring 33 league goals for Fiorentina in 2021, a Series A record he shares with Cristiano Ronaldo. He is an elite goal scorer, managing to score so often in a side which lacks elite creativity and dominance. Vlahovic has so far this season scored 17 league goals, while taking 75 shots. This equates to a goal every 4.41 shots, a very impressive figure. Vlahovic is simply put, a natural goal scorer with an elite desire to find the back of the net each game. A common misconception about Vlahovic is his "link up play being poor", a total myth. Vlahovic has developed his l...

Why is Dusan Vlahovic one of the most wanted U21 in the world?

If you ask any supporter of any club, or even do a survey of the management from every top club in the world, and ask the question "If you could have the choice of any young player coming up in this summer's transfer window, who would it be?" There is no doubt that the name Dusan Vlahovic would be amongst the leading vote getters, along with of course Borussia Dortmund's Erling Haaland, and for good reason, as just like Haaland, he has burst on to the scene and taken Europe by storm, as so far this season, he is the leading goal scorer in the Italian Serie A, at the young and tender age of only 21. From the moment Vlahovic announced he would be leaving Fiorentina at the end of the season, reports always suggested that Juventus and Arsenal were the clubs that he has been linked with the mo...

Juventus will have to try and secure Champions League footabll without Federico Chiesa. The Italian winger injured his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) during Roma-Juve on Sunday night. What does this mean and how will it affect Juventus for the rest of the season? Max Statman takes a look. The first thing I think about is Venezia away. Juventus lost playmaker Paulo Dybala after only 12 minutes, while Federico Chiesa was out with an injury. What happened? The Bianconeri were unable to create enough danger and drew the match. Juve continued to win their matches against Bologna and Cagliari (both 2-0), but Max Allegri's side clearly lacked creativity. And that was in matches where Juve didn't even face direct competitors for the Champions League spots. Of course Juventus' lack of crea...
