Juventus had it all to do here against La Viola who have impressed so far this season. Alvaro Morata played a starring role up top with his hard work ethic. He chases after everything and somewhat makes up for his lack of goals with his all round game. Fiorentina have added exciting players like Odriozola the right back from Real Madrid who is mobile as well as steel in the middle of the park with the likes of Lucas Toreira. They have gone for ex Spezia coach Vincenzo Italiano who has a reputation for expansive attacking soccer.
Vlahovic has an ambiguous threat about him. He is not a run the mill center forward but likes to take up unusual positions like drop deep into number 10. He can had and drive with the ball making him one of Serie A’s most dangerous strikers. Juve left it very late here. If I was Allegri that shot to goal conversion ratio will cause me sleepless nights. Clinical finishing is badly needed by the Bianconerri. In Europe they can get away with it because the defending can get a little loose. But in a defenders league like this one they have been found out. In as much as Juan Cuadrado’s goal was cleverly executed , he owes it to the poor goalkeeping by the Fiorentina goalie. The red card did also help in as much as they might not want to admit it.
