    They pulled an even worse performance against Lazio in Serie A, but somehow ended up winning that. Juve's form is appalling, some poor results have been long coming.

    Ronaldo is also in shocking form. I think the inevitable decline has accelerated.

    What a save. Beast.

    Aye. Anyone who thinks Liverpool's points total flatters them (it does) would be blown away watching Juve & seeing how many wins they have :lol:

    Another crazy miss from Inter :lol:

    The biggest mistake was from Caicedo in my opinion, when they had the ball with all the time and the space to put the game to sleep. It's amazing how professional players at the highest level can be so stupid.

    Lazio wasted so many chances to go through before penalties. They are struggling a lot to score compared with last season. Inter were even worse though. Casual, clumsy and ordinary.

    No worries, I doubt any Juve fan will take this personally. Almost everyone agrees that we were extremely bad against Atalanta and have been quite bad for a while. Most of the time we win anyway, because our individual quality is way beyond the competition in Serie A. But now we also have fitness issues accumulating throughout the squad. Some players have just returned from inury and Bonucci, Chiellini and Mandzukic will return in a few weeks. The winter break is also a time where typically you strengthen the physical foundation of the players for the important months of the season. That's another factor why some players may not be as sharp. I am confident that we will be much better in a couple of weeks, hopefully just in time for the CL. Fortunately, we have a favourable run of games in Serie A now.

    It's just a shame that we could not defend the Coppa again. But now there are some teams in the semi-final that never or rarely compete for trophies these days. So that will be interesting. I'll support Atalanta, they're doing amazing work there.

    Yes the winter break will come spot on for you. I feel that even when playing good the players haven't really discovered how to get the best out of Cristiano. He does a lot of runs in behind but the passes/crosses aren't really there yet.

    And yes, Atalanta are pretty fun to watch, I hope they'll win the Coppa as well.

    Third time he's at Juve, second loan.

    Juve came out to play tonight, looking much better with some players back from injury.

    That can’t be a penalty surely? Must be a free-kick to Parma one would think. Not that it really matters, Parma have nothing going forward. Except good ole Gervinho and his mad runs.

    So this is why Martin Caceres wasn't an option at Lazio despite their defense being shit.

    Some good signs for Juve nevertheless, with their main CB pairing this never happens.

    The result doesn't really matter, they're 9 points ahead of Napoli and dropped 6 points in the whole season so far.
