Plus ca change for Juve

Juventus fans and Maurizio Sarri will fear very little has realistically changed since the first leg defeat to Lyon, writes Kaustubh Pandey.

After the 1-0 loss to Lyon in the first leg of the Round of 16 of the Champions League, Maurizio Sarri seemed frustrated that his Juventus team couldn’t move the ball much quicker in midfield. That indeed was true, as the Bianconeri looked drab and rusty in the heart of the park and Lyon were happy to restrict them to playing harmless sideways passes for a majority of the game. A Lucas Tousart goal was enough to hand the French side a 1-0 victory.

Lecce gifted victory to Juventus

The result shows a 4-0 Juventus victory, but Elio Salerno points out Lecce had the measure of the Bianconeri until going down to 10 men.

Juventus ran out comfortable 4-0 winners on Friday night when dispatching relegation-threatened Lecce, but only after the Salentini gave their hosts a helping hand. It was a score-line that reflected harshly on Fabio Liverani’s team, as until Fabio Lucioni saw red after just 30 minutes, the Giallorossi had firmly established themselves in the game.
