Inter made very hard work of that. Another job done game though.

Napoli seem very similar to Spurs this season results wise. Probably overachieved last few seasons but now feels the end of the road for this squad.

A lot of controversy surrounding the squad right now. If they don’t get things together soon they could be in a real dogfight for CL places.

Think Roma will finish above them. Not sure if Lazio will remain consistant. Certainly not finishing 2nd this year as Inter have replaced them in the ability to grind out results to try to keep up with Juve.

That goal by Barella was a stunner, the defender was on him, and he still curled it into the corner.

Cagliari having an amazing season although that goal by Rog did look offside.

All down to Niangollan coming in?

Nainggollan, Rog, Nandez is very sexy midfield. Robust and experienced defence and Simeone & Pedro up front is just clicking.

Nainggolan, Nandez, Rog. Decent work rate and aggression there.

Wow Cagliari are destroying Viola...Nainggollan of course at heart of things. Looking at their transfer strategy they seem to have gone for players who haven't quite made it at other Serie A clubs...Robin Olson, Gio Simeone etc. Also got ex Liverpool CB Klavan and I've been impressed before by Joao Pedro.

Seem to be the new Atalanta as I've been very entertained watching them. Shame they have racism issues but we can't have everything.

Atalanta set a new tone for smaller clubs, it is a pity Udinese is a bit off these days but Pozzo was the precursor.

Nainggolan sure can hit them. A goal and 3 assists for him now?

Disappointed Ramsey isn't starting after his goal in the week. Is Dybala injured, seems odd not to play him in number 10 role given his excellent form in recent weeks.

Of course Juve-Milan is always a big game but AC Milan are pretty rubbish these days so seems a bit of a conservative Juve selection especially with them at home.

Assuming it will be sort of all playing for Ronnie to get him up in his spirits and the capocannoniere?

Dunno really, would say Dybala and Rabiot would be capable of slipping in more defence beating through balls than what they've got out there but Juve so mentally strong anyway they'll probably score in first 10 minutes and Milan will just collapse.

Great athleticism from Wojciech, header was going into top corner.

Pjanic shot from edge of the box goes out for a throw in, Juve been poor so far but we know they can wait until second half if needed.

Juve are the 8th best attack in Serie A. I don't know how because they certainly look a lot worse than that

Lively from Milan, they really should go for the sucker punch and an upset to inject some venom in the Serie A race.

Dybala is a must for second half, Douglas Costa and one of Ramsey/Rabiot aswell you'd suspect.

They will look better when those changes are made.

Seriously, what the feck is he even doing playing in the first place if he's injured? He's nearly 35 and we have 2 must-win qualification games for the Euros next week and already have loads of injuries :houllier:

The rest of the league should just give up on football if Juve manage to shithouse another win here
