Italian Serie A: Juventus FC close to the title but...

A defeat and two draws in the last three matches: Juventus FC are playing perhaps the worst soccer of their season, after losing 4-2 with AC Milan, and the draws with Atalanta Bergamasca and Sassuolo. Matches in which the club of star Cristiano Ronaldo and manager Maurizio Sarri disappointed expectations, risking to compromise a title already won.

Also due to the disasters of his direct rivals, such as FC Internazionale Milano and SS Lazio, Juventus still has 8 points ahead of the second, and the Italian Serie A title is one step away, despite the fact that Juventus fans have not taken the last team perfromances.

Fans want former manager Massimiliano Allegri

The fans are not happy with the management of Murizio Sarri, Juventus manager. And many would like the return of former coaxh Massimiliano Allegri, who with Juventus FC won 5 Italian Serie A titles, 4 Italian Cup and made two UEFA Champions League finals, losing in 2015 against Barcelona FC and in 2017 against Real Madrid CF.

A year later, the extreme mockery for the Livorno coach could arrive: his successor Maurizio Sarri, called by the president of Juve Andrea Agnelli as an innovator to bring the good game, risks winning the ninth league title in a row for the Juventus club of with the soccer that Allegri had, or with a small gap on the pursuers.

Inter potentially at -6 (but club of Milan lost both the big matches against Juventus), Atalanta at -7, Lazio at -8: hypothetically Juventus would need 9 points against Udinese, Sampdoria and Cagliari, teams without great goals in this championship final, to win the title.

So even two defeats against Lazio and Rome would not jeopardize the journey on the contrary, perhaps they would allow the Old Lady to take home the title of a few points, or even for direct clashes. The philosophy, the one that Agnelli did not like, for which he was sent via Allegri and called Sarri, and which instead could be the only innovation of the ninth Juventus championship in a row.

In the meantime, Juventus wonders about its future: will the manger Maurizio Sarri be replaced? The favorites of the club boad and the dreams of the fans are Zinedine Zidane, Pep Guardiola and Massimiliano Allegri. After the exchange between Barcelona's Arthur Melo and Miralem Pjanic, the dream for the attack is Antoine Griezmann, but also Kylian Mbappe.

In midfield I like the young Italians Sandro Tonali and Nicolò Zaniolo, but also Isco and Toni Kroos from Real Madrid. In defense, Gosens, Chestnuts and Theo Hernandez are followed.
