The picture darkens for Juventus of Max Allegri. The Old Lady bowed for the second time in a row in the league, beaten (2-1) on the pitch of Hellas Verona, after ¨s a defeat in the last moments of the match against Sassuolo (2-1) on Wednesday. The formation of Maxime Lopez is now behind the Bianconeri, overtaken in the standings by Verona, with the difference in goals.
Juve no longer stagnates, they are downgrading in the standings, to a worrying ninth place, and now find themselves in a bad position, very far from their ambitions of the start of the season, relegated Six points off the podium. The top two in the standings, Naples and AC Milan are even further, thirteen points. A hole. Giovanni Simeone, Diego’s son, scored twice in the first quarter (11th, 14th).
The Argentina forward, who came out with a quadruple last weekend, has already scored eight goals in nine Serie A appearances this season. Always so hard in the league, Juve once again showed a very worried face throughout this meeting. The late goal (80th) from Weston McKennie did not change the situation, even if Paulo Dybala – far too alone to offer anything coherent in this team – n? ??? was not far from equalizing at the end of the match (89th).
The Argentinian had touched the bar just before the break (44th) and grazed the left post after returning from the locker room. Juve have not won for three meetings. Massimiliano Allegri’s men had not experienced such a dearth of victories since the start of the season. “Allegri needs time,” said Juve vice-president Pavel Nedved ahead of the meeting, in an interview with Gazzetta dello Sport. The Czech also demanded a reaction, which he therefore did not obtain. Will Allegri be given the time he needs? Nothing is less certain. The pressure on his shoulders is immense.
