Important week for Pirlo: Three consecutive home games

Juventus prepare for three important home games in one week, as pressure mounts on coach Andrea Pirlo.

After a disappointing 1-1 draw with Hellas Verona on Saturday, Pirlo’s men have a chance to respond immediately against Spezia at the Allianz Stadium on Tuesday.

The reigning champions are going through a difficult period, where injuries have halted their progress and the results are not what they expected.

With only one win in their last five games, reports in Italy are pointing at the lack of ferocity and continuity that has always distinguished the Bianconeri.

There’s not much time to prepare for the next games, but the Old Lady must react, and the next three home games are very important to help their season.

Juventus can’t afford another setback in the next two home games in Serie A, hosting Spezia on Tuesday and Lazio on Saturday.

Three days after the match against the Aquile, FC Porto arrive for the return leg in the Champions League, where Juventus must turn around a 2-1 defeat from Estadio Do Dragao.

La Stampa claims this week could be decisive for Pirlo, as Juventus have one game in hand but sit 10 points behind League leaders Inter and risk elimination from the European Cup.
