Juve midfield not Champions quality

Once the cornerstone of Juventus strength, the midfield has now become their main flaw in pursuit of the Champions League, argues Ramez Nathan.

Juve's path back to greatness began with Antonio Conte seven years ago. The Italian tactician had just arrived after leading Siena to promotion and was about to start the most challenging journey with the Old Lady.

We all know the story, they'd been back in Serie A for five campaigns failing to achieve any silverware and their former captain guided them to three successive Scudetti, including an unbeaten run in their first title.

Serie A goes Info-VARs

Social media campaigns like #JuveOut serve only to obscure the real issues in Serie A, writes Gaby McKay.

The social media campaign appears to have been started by an Inter fan in the wake of the Bianconeri’s controversial win in Jeddah. “I’m trying to launch a hashtag which will serve to organise a widespread protest for a country which loves football and can no longer tolerate certain tricks: #JuveOut,” Interismo Cosmico wrote. “We ask Serie A to remove Juventus from our league”.
