When Ronaldo left Juve it was the perfect opportunity for Paulo Dybala to be the main man in the Bianconerri team. So far the Argentine’s goal return is no where near the Portuguese superstar’s return. Not out of want of trying though , Paulo is making a lot of efforts at goal but the shot accuracy isn’t up to scratch. This is Juve’s second defeat on the trot after their home humiliation against Sassuaolo. As in that match American International Weston McKennie was the scorer to launch the comeback. But goals haven’t been Juventus’s problem this season, their champions league form shows this. It is the mistakes leading to a goal particularly by the goalkeeper. Simeone is a striker on a roll but his second goal is bound to have pundits look at the keeper’s positioning.
Doubts as to the Old Lady’s defense will grow louder. It is a fact that it is an aging defense. As such they struggle against quick counter attacking teams. The addition of De Ligt hasn’t been the success it was meant to be. The Dutchman looks out of place in Italian soccer were ball playing defenders are not the in thing. A dip into the January transfer window will help Max Allegri a lot here. An out and out go scoring number 9 such as Immobile and a center back such as Koulibaly may be the answer.
