Juventus missed the chance to join Milan at the top of Serie A after being held to a 1-1 draw by Bologna at the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara on Wednesday. Juve went in to this rescheduled clash having drawn the past two matches and Antonio Conte surprisingly started Marco Borriello in a trident attack with Mirko Vucinic and the returning Simone Pepe. However, it was Bologna who took the lead in the 17th minute when Marco Di Vaio beat the offside […]

Juventus left Milan with a point on Saturday, but not before a drama-filled 90 minutes that still has fans and the media debating. From phantom goals to offside calls, punches to scuffles, the match kept the moviola busy and threw in some decent football too. Both sides can feel rightly aggrieved over a goal disallowed by linesman Roberto Romagnoli, but the fallout now appears to surround Gianluigi Buffon’s honesty in saying that had he known Sulley Muntari’s header crossed the […]

It will not decide the fate of the Scudetto; the season is still too young for that. However, this Saturday’s Milan versus Juventus showdown is undoubtedly the game of the season. Milan holds a one point advantage over their adversary. Juve still has a game in hand to make up in March.

Parma and Juventus played out a 0-0 draw at the Stadio Ennio Tardini on Wednesday night in their rescheduled round 21 match, postponed at the start of February due to heavy snowfall.

Juventus took an important step towards reaching the Coppa Italia final as a returning Martin Caceres scored a brace to ensure a 2-1 semi-final first leg win over Milan at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza. Antonio Conte made changes as noted in the pre-match press conference, with Marco Storari, Caceres, Simone Padoin, Alessandro Del Piero and Marco Borriello all starting in the 3-5-2 formation. Each goal arrived after the interval, as Caceres tapped home the opener after fellow new signings Padoin […]

Eighteen matches into the season and Juventus are undefeated and sitting in first place. Everything seems rosy red, or pink (like their away shirt), in Turin.

Andrea Barzagli believes Juventus were unlucky not  to claim all three points against Cagliari on Sunday. Mirko Vucinic’s opener was cancelled out by Andrea Cossu’s strike early in the second half, but, after peppering the Cagliari goal, Juve could not find a winner. “It’s a shame not to have won. We created many opportunities without being able to make the most of them,” said the central defender. “Cagliari played a great game from a defensive point of view. We lacked […]

Juventus will be at home for the first time in 2012 on Sunday when they welcome Cagliari to the Juventus Stadium. Starting the New Year off with more of a whimper than a bang, Juve did manage to take home the three points from Lecce even if it was a struggle. As Antonio Conte stated afterwards, they will look to build from that match and improve their performance. Match-winner Alessandro Matri is expected to start after the injury suffered by […]
