Judging by the bad games of Juventus at the start of Serie A, ie the convincing releases of Chelsea in the Premier League (except for the defeat by Manchester City), there were not too many who believed that the Old Lady would save the net in Turin and leave all the spoils in their home.
However, Massimiliano Allegri is tactically one of the greatest football experts, and the fact that he has a quality defence and experience helped him get Juve's boat into a peaceful port. "Like sailors in stormy seas, we managed to find a way to get out of the storm.

It is clear that Juventus is slowly improving their form and that they look better on the field.
Ronaldo's departure has affected their team spirit, and it is obvious that they will miss such a player, but it must not be forgotten that Juventus still has a huge quality, especially in the defensive line. Apparently, the midfield is the weakest part of the team, which could affect Juventus in the winter transfer window trying to sign a player in the midfield who could bring quality
