He is”only” 35 though! I have no doubts he will be doing the same thing in two years at 37!

He will be around for a while yet.
Oh my mistake I thought he was 36 already and 37 in February.

You are correct 35 and 36 in feb.

But ya he has not lost a step and still has a good amount of years left at the tip top.

Offensively Juve have everything to be a lot better this season with Chiesa and Kulusevski in the team to make things happen instead of being just Dybala and Ronaldo. Morata has been great so far too so he should be an upgrade on Higuain.

Defensively they've been awful though, really need Chiellini, De Ligt and Alex Sandro to make an impact. I think Alex Sandro playing where Danilo played today will be a big success. There is a lot of potential for improvement in this team imo, it's all down to Pirlo to figure things out.
more like we miss something in the midfield position which can cover a bit for the defence

That Juventus line up looks surprisingly weak

Immobile out is massive blow for Lazio.

Juve one up through obligatory Ronaldo goal anyway.

Lazio with 95th minute goal!

Continuing to make Serie A just that little bit more interesting this season....

Lazio draws at the very end thanks to Inzaghi urging his player to throw the ball forward and Correa's dribbling.

Juve with Ronaldo: 13 goals, 3 against

Juve without Ronaldo: 5 goals, 6 against

Take him and Chiellini out of this team and there’s no character at all, they keep falling apart mentally.

What a season this is turning out to be in Italy though, really hope Milan and Ibra can keep it up

Brilliant managing, his positivity, direction and urgency (and of course the ability of Correa and Caciedo) really got that goal

Someone needs to do an in-depth analysis of Bernardeschi’s game time vs Juve’s results. It’s unbelievable, they lose points every single time he’s on the pitch. I bet they win more points, score more goals and concede less playing with 10 men than they do with him playing

Apparently the 6th injury time goal Caicedo has scored in the Serie A. Some kind of record.

I missed the game do you know how bad Ronaldos injury was? Anything to be worried about you reckon?

Juve, Inter, Atalanta and Lazio all outside the top 4 after 7 games. No preseason is resulting in weird results all across Europe.

Milan now 2-0 down to Verona at home after 20 minutes

This is the problem really, seems like other teams always drop points on weekends Juve do so no one can start building up decent lead over them.

Then Juventus win 6-7 straight and it's all but over.

Typical of Milan. They were starting to receive lots of plaudits for their start to the season.

As soon as the hype built, they got well beaten 3-0 by Lille and have now made a mess of a great opportunity to further extend their lead at the top of Serie A.

This is a very young Milan squad. Not many players over the age of 25.

Zlatan needs to be taken off penalty duties, it's his third miss this season already and they have Kessie in the team who never misses. He almost cost them all 3 points today with his misses but made up for it with the equalizer at the end, it's crazy how dominant he is in the air.

Surprised he's missed so many, was a beast on penalties at PSG. Think he missed one for Man. United.

He has also been really good at it for Milan, apart from this season.


What a game. 34-7 in shots.
Missed penalty. Several goals ruled out due to VAR.
GK heroics. Own goals.
This was not our night. I'll take the 1 point, even if this looked like easy 3 points based on the chances created.

Games against Verona are always tricky, I'm just glad the unbeaten streak continues.

It feels like the race is open. Ibra has to start scoring his pens though if they should win it.

Inter has had the weakest start compared to what I thought. Lukaku has been badly missed in the last few games.
I thought they would win it, but Conte can't teach his team to defend well right now.

Juventus I thought would start slowly and struggle this year. We will see if Ronaldo gets fully going again to drag them to the title.

Well, I don't know whether I should be surprised by this or not, but Fiorentina have relieved Beppe Iachini of his duties and replaced him with Cesare Prandelli.

He said in the post match interview that he will give the next penalty to Kessie. But normally, Zlatan has been the one who never misses.
