Juventus bring back a point from their trip to Genoa against Sampdoria after a goalless draw on Monday evening. A meeting that will not go down in the annals of the football guest book with Juve as sad as their coach and without any idea of the game. Here are the highs and lows of this meeting…
If this category remains totally subjective and everyone will make their own opinion, the editorial staff of Juventus-fr.com gives you their opinion on this rather negative result even if Juventus does not lose and manages to keep a clean sheet. Despite everything, the level of play is clearly bad and we feel that all the automatisms are not yet present between the players.
Filip Kostic 🇷🇸: for a first tenure with his new team, the Serb was the most restless on his left side and he performed well. He did not go very far from being the bianconero savior at the end of the match but he fell on an Emil Audero.
Young Miretti and Rovella 🇮🇹: in 20 minutes, they showed more than most of their teammates with much more desire and intensity. If Adrien Rabiot’s goal is disallowed for offside, it is Fabio Miretti who is at the origin of the action and who recovers a good ball in midfield. Same for Rovella who tried his luck and could have had more success on his two strikes. They were the positive points of this meeting but it is far too little to aspire to a victory in the league against Sampdoria.
MASSIMILIANO ALLEGRI 🇮🇹: it’s the big flop of the evening. He aligns a team composition to bring back a 0-0 with a Cuadrado who plays once as a full-back and once as a winger. Dusan Vlahovic cannot be fueled by a medium with little creativity. Rugani in central defense still not up to par and we are waiting for him to finally give Federico Gatti his chance. Great Allegri in the bad sense of the term and a real questioning. No idea in the composition and without Di Maria he is totally lost in terms of creativity. Certainly there are absent but this composition is not possible. BEING THE JUVE AND SHOWING SO LITTLE IN 45 MINUTES IS INADMISSIBLE!!
The central defense Rugani 🇮🇹 – Bremer 🇧🇷: not far from catastrophic! If Bremer had shown a lot of qualities last week during the match and the victory against Sassuolo, he missed his meeting. He is doing very well on the first dangerous action of the match and he can thank his goalkeeper Mattia Perin. Much like fellow defenseman Daniele Rugani both men had far too much passing waste and failed to show up against a rather clumsy Samp side in the danger zone.
Alex Sandro 🇧🇷: once again a match without and which proves that the Brazilian does not have or no longer has the level to evolve as a holder of the left side position of Juventus. Offensively, he tries to bring but defensively he is very often late.
Manuel Locatelli 🇮🇹: Hard hard for our defender but if he completely misses his appointment, it is largely because of Massimiliano Allegri who offered him a poison position. Max put that in your head, Locatelli is not a number 6 and he is lost in this position. He must play higher in the position of number 8 and not in 6 or he brings absolutely nothing to the team.
Weston McKennie 🇺🇸: a very bad match, too many ball losses, no idea in the game and a match to clearly forget for the American international. He never found his place during the meeting.
Juan Cuadradro 🇨🇴: he was not at all successful in carrying the danger against the opponent and he made the worst choice on his strike in the first period. He will make up for it next Saturday with the big bland shock at AS Roma. We don’t include Dusan Vlahovic because, for a striker, it’s torture to play in a system like that, especially since he could have been the decisive passer on Adrien Rabiot’s disallowed goal.
