Juventus cruised to a 3-1 win at the Juventus stadium against Max Allegri’s ex-employer AC Milan. Despite the scoreline, it was an entertaining game and the Rossoneri showed they have the potential to put up a fighting challenge against the champions. Milan had played at the Juventus Stadium on three occasions and lost all three times. Moreover, the Rossoneri had not won a game on the road in their last six attempts. Juventus, on the other hand, were looking to extend their lead at the top of the table to 10 points before Roma take on Cagliari the following day. Milan had a terrible month in January as they were hit hard with injuries and a run of bad form. Before their win against bottom side Parma, they had not won a game in five in all competitions.

Juventus missed the chance to go 9 points clear at the top of the Serie A table as they were held to a 0-0 draw at Stadio Comunale Friuli by Udinese.

Juventus were slow out of the blocks, spending much of the time maintaining possession but failed to penetrate the stout defence […]

Mario Gomez finally scored his first goal of the season while Napoli needed a last minute equalizer against high flying Sampdoria. Andrea Pirlo’s brilliance decides Derby Della Mole Torino thought they had done enough to end their derby curse last night but a moment of magic from Andrea Pirlo gave Juventus an undeserved yet memorable 2-1 win over Torino. It was a bitter blow for Giampiero Ventura’s men who displayed solid organization and indomitable spirit throughout the game only to be thwarted by an act of sheer quality from the 35-year-old star. Juventus were reduced to 10 men in the 77th minute when Stephan Lichtsteiner was sent off for a second bookable offence after mistiming a sliding challenge on Omar El Kadodouri. Going into the game Torino were in 15th place but Ventura’s side had a surprisingly decent defensive […]
