Just several weeks into the summer transfer window Juventus sealed the deal for Swiss defender Stephan Lichtsteiner from Lazio for a fee of 10 million euros.

Antonio Conte has been the driving force of the Juventus revolution with his aggressive 4-3-3 formation. Essential to the attack are the wingers as not only do they offer more of a threat in the attack, they offer support for the striker as well as take attention away from the middle. Conte inherited one of his wingers in the form of Simone Pepe, but the other wing was left vacant. While Juventus pursued a number of strikers, they eventually landed [...]

Another week and another win, as Juventus roll through Novara to keep their unbeaten streak intact.

Although the visitors did have a few chances, this match was all Juve. Juventus had a little different look to start this game, as Conte chose a few players who had not started many games this season. [...]

Monday saw Juventus go back to the top of the table but their grip on the lead has loosened, as they are now level on points with Udinese. Following the draw with Roma, Juve and Udinese now both have 30 points on the season, and although Conte and his men have expressed their delight with the draw, one can’t help but feel that this was a missed opportunity for Juve, especially considering that Milan drew Bologna. That being said, looking [...]

Juventus fans, following the amazing comeback in Napoli on Tuesday, are probably feeling confident coming into this weekend’s fixture.

The odds will certainly be stacked against Cesena as they step foot in Torino on Sunday to take on table toppers Juventus. Things are going well for [...]

Following the big win on Saturday at Lazio, there has been a lot of talk about game winner Simone Pepe. A year ago there was a giant question mark in the minds of Juventini about the arrival of the Italian international on loan from Udinese. His career prior to Juventus had been one of uncertainty, as the winger had bounced around for most of his youth until finally stringing a few years together at the Udine side. He earned a [...]
