Juve's Champions League curse continues

Juventus failed in Europe yet again, this time eliminated by a tactically-astute Lyon, but Elio Salerno saw problems that extend far beyond just Maurizio Sarri.

It was another night of misery in the Champions League for Juventus, as The Old Lady were again sent packing in Europe’s elite football competition. The feeling of disappointment will be overwhelming for Juventini, but what will perhaps hurt the most is that this latest elimination is not at all surprising.

Dybala unlikely to start against Lyon

Paulo Dybala is unlikely to be fit enough to start tomorrow’s Champions League decider with Lyon, so Juventus look to Gonzalo Higuain and Juan Cuadrado.

The Round of 16 clash kicks off in Turin on Friday at 20.00 UK time (19.00 GMT).

The first leg ended 1-0 for Olympique Lyonnais in France back in February, so the Bianconeri must win by two clear goals to turn this around.

Dybala is the big doubt, as he sustained a muscular injury against Sampdoria 11 days ago and did not take part in today’s full training session either.

Cuadrado suspended against Sassuolo

Juan Cuadrado is suspended for the next Juventus match against Sassuolo, leaving the Bianconeri with a shortage of full-backs.

The Colombia international was booked during last night’s 2-2 draw with Atalanta, activating a ban for his accumulation of yellow cards.

He is the only player suspended from Saturday’s fixtures, which also included Lazio-Sassuolo and Brescia-Roma.

It leaves Juve without Cuadrado, plus injured Mattia De Sciglio, Merih Demiral and Sami Khedira, for Wednesday night's match at the Mapei Stadium.

Maurizio Sarri believes he’s been able to ‘convince’ Paulo Dybala of the new role and reveals what ‘surprised’ him about Juventus stars Cristiano Ronaldo and Juan Cuadrado.

The Bianconeri emerged 4-1 winners against Torino thanks to Dybala, Cuadrado, Ronaldo and a Koffi Djidji own goal.

“We knew it wasn’t going to be an easy game, but we went in front early and doubled our lead soon after,” Sarri told Sky Sport Italia.

Juan Cuadrado insists Juventus ‘played good football, but Napoli defended with 11 men and it was difficult to find spaces’ in the Coppa Italia Final defeat.

“We went out there with the desire to win the game, but Napoli defended with 11 men and it was difficult to find spaces,” Cuadrado told RAI Sport.

Will Sarri's Juventus stand up?

Juventus were the first team to reach the Olimpico showpiece but, as Livio Caferoglu writes, they have plenty to mull over before the Final with Napoli...

For Juventus, there was an overriding sense of relief when Gianluca Rocchi blew for full-time last Friday. They booked their place in the Coppa Italia Final, courtesy of a goalless draw with Milan, and pulled through without any injuries, even managing to play a bit in the first half. However, their performance levels plummeted after the restart, leaving Maurizio Sarri with more questions than answers going into Wednesday’s Final against former club Napoli.

Cuadrado: 'Juve players set example'

Juan Cuadrado confirms Giorgio Chiellini orchestrated Juventus players accepting a salary reduction due to the COVID-19 pandemic. “We hope that we set the example for others.”

The Bianconeri were the first squad in Italy to accept a voluntary pay cut during the coronavirus lockdown, but negotiations elsewhere have hit problems.

“Captain Chiellini spoke to the club, then told all of us via a Whatsapp group what was being discussed,” Cuadrado revealed on Sky Sport Italia.
