Allegri’s Tactical Switch Maintains Juventus’ Serie A Title Bid

Juventus remain on course for a sixth successive Serie A title and third successive domestic double. The Old Lady sit top of Serie A after 20 fixtures with 48 points, a point clear of Roma. The champions’ four defeats this season have all come away from home against Inter, Milan, Genoa and most recently Fiorentina.

Manager Massimiliano Allegri changed the team’s formation to a 4-2-3-1 in order to fit Juan Cuadrado, Paulo Dybala, Mario Mandžukić, and Gonzalo Higuaín into the first eleven. The effects were immediate with Juventus securing a comfortable 2-0 home victory against fourth-placed Lazio on Sunday.

Allegri, Gianluigi Buffon and Barzagli allsigned contract extensions

Juventus secured their 5th successive Serie A title after what has been yet another dominant season where MassimilianoAllegri and his team won the Italian League even before the season had officially completed.


The only other clubs that were attempting to stay alongside Juventus competing for the top spots were Napoli and As.Roma but neither of them could really make a genuine charge as Juventus snatched the 1rst spot of the Serie A for the entire season.

MassimilianoAllegri wants to continue being in charge of Juventus and win more titles as the Italian manager decided to sign a contract extension that will be seeing Allegri coaching the club at least until 2018.

Massimiliano Allegri claims that goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon was a major factor

Massimiliano Allegri claims that goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon was a major factor in the club’s victory over AC Milan during the weekend.

A 2-1 win for the table leaders kept their amazing run going. There was a danger of Milan either drawing or even winning the game had it not been for Buffon. Juventus have dropped only two points since the end of October. It remains as one of the finest runs seen throughout Europe this season. Even Spanish club Barcelona cannot claim to have a better points return during this period.
