It will be simple to single out sure people, however the issue is that just about each participant in a Juve shirt was woeful. The entire staff was devoid of concepts and creativity. They barely threatened the Udinese objective, and if the sport went on for an additional 24 hours, Juve would nonetheless not have scored.
Max Allegri has to take his share of the blame as effectively. He chosen this lineup, deployed the ways and technique, and the reality is, he was discovered wanting.
Inter are actually seven factors clear with a sport in hand, and Juve now have to fret much more about AC Milan taking on the second spot. That’s now the state of play, from being title contenders to now not being assured of second.
Udinese didn’t play out of their skins; they didn’t must. They bought their objective after which defended effectively. They had been organized and disciplined, not one thing that may be attributed to the Juventus midfield and ahead line.
There’s now going to must be some deep soul-searching on the membership. Is Allegri the person for the job? Are sure gamers match to put on the jersey, and are some gamers being overhyped?
