When Juventus travels on Sunday, October 5th to Renato Dall’Ara to play Fiorentina, they will be hoping to maintain their strong campaign-starting form.
Vincenzo Italiano had no idea that his high-flying Fiorentina team would tumble from such a height so soon after crushing defending champions Napoli 3-1 right on the eve of the international break in October. Should that have been the pinnacle of their initial effort, their post-pause phase ended up being an unsuccessful one. Fiorentina’s Europa Conference League victory over Cukaricki 6-0, was only a small comfort following the team’s surprising 2-0 home loss to Empoli in their Serie A comeback. While splitting the spoils at the Stadio Olimpico would have been difficult for Italiano, tying with Lazio would not have been forgiven. But Fiorentina was doomed to a heartbreaking 1-0 loss when Nikola Milenkovic’s late handball within the penalty area brought Ciro Immobile to the spot. Prior to this intimidating matchup versus Juventus, it must have not simply stopped their forward motion but also diminished their spirits.
This weekend, Juventus will travel to Fiorentina with the goal of reducing the points differential between them and Inter. In their previous 5 league games, Max Allegri’s team has won 4 and drawn one, with their only loss coming in September at Sassuolo. Juventus has been playing well lately, but goals have not come easily; instead, Allegri has had to rely heavily on the effectiveness of his attacking players to win games. They have scored one goal per match on average over their past 5 league games, and they could raise that significantly against Fiorentina, who has failed to keep a clean sheet during their 3 most recent Serie A games. Juventus has had a stellar run of 5 straight clean sheets in Serie A coming up to this match, demonstrating their strength on defense both before and after the most recent international break. Juventus will keep trying to put pressure on Inter with a victory.
