The dominance of Juventus in the recent years in the Italian championship is incredible, and it is hard to see who could take them down from the throne. The fans of the Old Lady are certainly happy with the form of their team, and they hope that more silverware will arrive in their trophy room. In the post-Calciopoli era, Juventus has been the most powerful Italian team, and the fact that they won 5 successive Scudettos in the last five seasons speaks for itself. Their rich tradition and impressive titles produce an enormous amount of fear to opponents, which often leads to losing focus and giving up. According to some football experts, The Old Lady is one of the toughest football teams to play with.
– The Dominance In The Serie A
Juventus is currently sitting at the top of the Serie A, and this position is becoming their traditional place. In the last couple of seasons, the team from Turin dominated the Serie A, and no other team came close to winning the Scudetto. Only Napoli posed a certain threat to the team from the north of Italy, but the depth of Juve’s team always proved crucial, and they would end the seasons as champions.
However, last season was a bit different since Juventus made a terrible start. In a couple of opening rounds they played horribly, and the results were disastrous. But, a defeat against Sassuolo brought a significant change in the team’s spirit, and the coach Massimiliano Allegri galvanized his players. What followed was a genuinely impressive accomplishment – a fantastic series of 25 games without defeat, of which 24 were wins and only one draw! With such a streak, Allegri’s team climbed all the way to the top of the Serie A table where they remained to the very end of the season.
– Transfers And Squad Strength
During the summer transfer window, Juventus was very active, and the management of the club made some very interesting choices. First, they released Paul Pogba to Manchester United for a record fee in the world of football (105 million euros), and then they brought in a prolific striker from Napoli – Gonzalo Higuain for 90 million euros. Some other additions to the team have also increased the quality of the first team, and players like Pjanic or Dani Alves are already playing crucial roles in the structure of the current Juve.
Of course, the experience of Gigi Buffon who is one of the best goalkeepers of all time, is still a strong asset, and the plays of Bonucci and Khedira are also there to offer stability and composure. On the other hand, Dybala and Rugani are young and energetic players willing to prove themselves, and all of these high-quality players are a clear sign that Juventus will not give up on the Scudetto, at least not without a fight. Like all teams, Juventus had its ups and downs, but the predictions are quite good for this old and remarkable team.
