Juventus won their 9th title in a row at the end of the past campaign, but in Turin, that one will not be remembered as a successful season. In fact, they ended up triumphing despite an almost-embarrassing array of bad performances after the end of the Covid-19 break, which culminated in the Coppa Italia and Champions League disasters. The age of the team and coach Sarri were seen as mainly responsible for the way things turned out, and the management decided to solve both problems over the summer. First of all, they made an unexpected move charging former star Andrea Pirlo, who had just been hired for the Under23 team, as new coach, in Sarri’s stead. This is a bit of a jump in the dark as the ex-midfield genius is at his first experience as a coach let alone in Serie A. He is said to be adopting a very aggressive 4-3-3 or 3-5-2 formation, where players are asked to immediately get hold of the ball as soon as they lose it. Then, Juventus also had to cope with some financial issues, possibly caused by the excessive investments made for Ronaldo a couple of years back, which did not really pay back as expected yet. So, they started trying to get rid of those players with high wages no longer considered useful. Matuidi was thus let go to the USA while Khedira and Higuain are still trying to find their new place in the world. On top of that, they also sold Pjanic, whose last season was inconsistent to say the least, to Barcelona. And from Barcelona also arrived their most expensive signing, Arthur, a rather versatile midfielder who is expected to act as the new playmaker as alternative to Bentancur. McKennie, on loan from Schalke, will be expected to provide some depth in a midfield that turned out to be their main weakness in the past campaign. Besides them, Juventus also recalled 20-year-old midfielder/winger Kulusevski from Parma and he might very well prove to be their most remarkable signing. Goals and assists are expected from him. Lots of money was also invested in 19-year-old right winger Correia but it remains to be seen whether he will manage to impose himself amidst so many seasoned champions. While they are still trying to let a few tired champions go, Juventus continue the hunt for a centre-forward to replace departing Higuain: Suarez, Dzeko or Morata are all being considered for the role. Moreover, there might also be some changes at full-backs or on the wings, in order to rejuvenate the squad.

Target


Juventus are a big question mark at the moment as coach Pirlo is at his first experience and the squad is still undergoing some renovation. With the players they have, they will at least have to fight for the Scudetto and leave a mark on their obsession, the Champions League.

Season Review
2019/2020

Champions: Juventus

A 9th consecutive Scudetto for Juventus but this was the least convincing of their dynasty. Having won the previous 8 titles under Antonio Conte and Massimiliano Allegri - the club took a dramatic change of direction by appointing Maurizio Sarri. This was seemingly under the guise of playing more attractive football - in contrast to the more pragmatic approach of his predecessors. There were some early signs of the new style coming to fruition in a thrilling 4-3 win over Sarri's former club Napoli in the second game but those ended up being few and far between. At times Juve looked like a team who were stuck between trying to adopt their new manager's expansive ethos and sticking to the hardline "win at all costs" principles that they've been so used to for years. The Bianconeri must take some credit for going unbeaten in their first 14 Serie A matches - winning 11 of them. They flexed their superiority over former boss Conte's new Inter Milan side by doing the double over them and they were generally the strongest side in Italian yet again but there was just something missing. The Coronavirus pandemic struck at arguably the worst time for Juve - having just claimed that second win over Inter in the league. When the season resumed - their problems seemed amplified. They lost the Coppa Italia final to Napoli, limped over the finish line in Serie A with some terrible inconsistent form and then the most painful defeat came in the Champions League. Considered the holy grail for the Old Lady - for the second year running they were dumped out by a younger more vibrant team in Lyon. The Lyon defeat ended Juve's season and immediately ended Sarri's reign in charge. It never seemed the right fit from the start and he wasn't really given the players to suit his style of play. New midfielders Aaron Ramsey and Adrien Rabiot were in and out of the team whilst Matthijs de Ligt had some shaky moments at the back. Cristiano Ronaldo continued to provide the goods with an incredible 37 goals across all competitions having turned 35 years old. The Bianconeri have become heavily reliant on him. Although Paulo Dybala also had an excellent season before he got injured towards the end - reminding everyone of the player he promised to be. Another surprising appointment followed Sarri's departure but this one is likely to be a lot more popular with club legend Andrea Pirlo taking the reigns. He has no experience at this level but will surely be given backing by both the fans and the club.
