Juventus 1-0 Lazio: Player Ratings

Juventus and Lazio fought for a spot in the semi-finals at the Allianz Stadium on Thursday, with a Bremer goal proving enough to beat the visitors from the capital. In a far from filled up Allianz, Juventus and Lazio battled out who'd face Inter in the next round of the Coppa Italia. The match started out pretty evenly, with the Bianconeri having the slight upper hand. Both teams had some opportunities, Lazio came close with a Zaccagni curler, while Kostić troubled Maximiano from a tight angle. However, Juventus managed to take the lead just before the end of the first half. Lazio couldn't get the ball away and it fell to Kostić, who directly delivered it into the box. That turned out to be a great cross, as Bremer beat Maximiano to the ball and headed in the 1-0. I...

Juventus 3-3 Atalanta: Player Ratings

A six-goal-thriller between Juventus and Atalanta ended up without a winner. After a horrible week, the Bianconeri showed character as they restart the chase for European football. The match couldn't have started any worse for Juventus. After the hard hit of the 15 point deduction in Serie A, the Bianconeri also conceded after five minutes because of a Szczesny mistake. The Polish goalkeeper slapped a Lookman shot at the near post into his own goal. 23 minutes into the match, Nicolò Fagioli earned Juventus a penalty, which was converted by Angel Di Maria. A beautiful Bianconeri attack ten minutes later ended up with Milik scoring the 2-1 from a great cross by Fagioli. That attack also included some Di Maria magic.

Serie A journalist Nima Tavallaey Roodsari on Juventus point deduction: ‘I think they will be acquitted’

Juventus were struck with the incredibly harsh decision of a fifteen point deduction on Friday evening following the capital gains case, which involved the Bianconeri overevaluating some of players they sold. Max Statman spoke with Football Journalist Nima Tavallaey Roodsari about one of the craziest nights in Italian football. “My first reaction was genuine surprise, because this was the appeal to a case in which Juventus were first cleared of wrongdoing”, Roodsari says. Like many others, he thought the clearing in the first case was the end of the investigation. “Juventus were first found innocent, then the Prisma-investigation broke, the information was shared with the Italian FA and the appeal was launched. We saw the result of that today.” It doesn’t surprise Roodsari that Juve...

Juventus 1-0 Udinese: Match Ratings

Juventus left it late again, but captain Danilo made sure the three points would stay in Turin. The Bianconeri have now won their last 8 matches in Serie A and have kept a clean sheet in all of those. The first big chance of the match was for Udinese. Beto was found at the second post, he beat Miretti in the air and headed the ball towards Szczesny. The Polish goalkeeper was alert and punched the ball away from the goal. One minute later, the other goalkeeper had to react. Rugani put his head to a Di Maria cross, but Silvestri made an excellent save to keep it 0-0. Juventus grew a little more into the match in the latter stages of the first half, and Di Maria put Kean one-on-one with Silvestri, but the Udinese goalkeeper once again denied Juventus the 1-0.

No contact between Juventus and Luis Enrique

There's no contact between Juventus and coach Luis Enrique, Max Statman was told by transfer expert Nicolò Schira. The Spanish coach left his position at the Spanish National Team this morning after a disappointing World Cup exit against Morocco. Massimiliano Allegri's return to Juventus hasn't been a big success yet. The Bianconeri started the season poorly and even crashed out of the Champions League in a group with PSG, Benfica and Maccabi Haifa. Before the World Cup break, Juventus climbed the league table and managed to secure 3rd place after a run of good results. Still, Allegri' spot wasn't the most secure one in the world. Many Juventus supporters opted for replacing the Italian coach with Luis Enrique. The ex-Barcelona coach announced that he would be leaving the Spanish N...

De Ligt as the subject of interest for Chelsea: the latest news surrounding the transfer

The notorious club from London, Chelsea, is reportedly after Juventus' Matthijs de Ligt, who they would like to acquire permanently this summer.
