12:49 pm – Vlahovic is better
Last year, Vlahovic’s placement was more complicated than expected. The Serbian at Fiorentina scored in a burst. Once he arrived in Turin he returned to earth. In addition, in the summer, he worked to dispose of an annoying form of groin pain and pursues the best condition. Dusan is better and has everything to have a great season, Max spurs him on. Juve’s relaunch passes through Vlahovic’s goals. Meanwhile, the escort striker, the Dutch Depay, is on the way, while for the director, Paredes, an agreement is expected between Rabiot and Manchester United. Kostic, on the other hand, is ready, Allegri thinks about relaunching McKennie, recovered by surprise. It is not a question of men, but of spirit and attitude: the future now is not possible to make mistakes.
11:57 am – We need more defensive solidity
One step at a time, then. The summer was not great, Allegri admits it: We need to improve from all points of view, from the game to the defensive solidity. I don’t know if we are better than a year ago, but to bring the Scudetto back home we have to do something important while keeping a low profile. The defeat with Atletico Madrid did us good. If this is really the case, we will understand it already on the night of August 15th. Max insisted on the back four, underlining Bremer’s growth even if the loss of Chiellini and De Ligt made itself felt. The slow game must be enhanced by Di Maria’s qualities. It’s up to Fideo to trigger Vlahovic, the Juventus knot.
11:29 am – The coach: We need to close the gap on Milan
Try to win to chase away the skepticism but without illusions, without thinking of winning just because you are wearing the Juve shirt. Max’s announcement whispered and seasoned with a series of premises: It will be difficult to succeed. The Milanese are ahead and not just because they won the first game. And it widens the circle of contenders for the title: Five or six teams and we are among them. More five than six, considering Rome and the renewed Naples. Realism is needed according to the coach: Last year we scored 16 points less than Milan and we must have the humility to accept it and try to recover. And if the Scudetto is the objective of June, the Leghorn has another one that is closer and less ephemeral: To reach the November break in the top four and qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League.
11:13 am – Allegri: We must aim for the Scudetto
He has to chase and not just because he is the last to get going and the Milanese, albeit in different ways, have started off on the right foot. Juventus has the urgent need to rediscover ancient sensations in the year in which Vlahovic has to change pace and Allegri cannot go wrong after a season of zero titles. Max knows that another start like last year, in which he put together just two points in the first four games, would not be tolerable and he remembers the mission di Madama: We have a duty to aim for the Scudetto. The coach says this to shake the conscience of the locker room at the end of a complicated week: seven are unavailable, Vlahovic late in condition and still without a goal, the squaring of the (tactical) circle to be found. And Sassuolo, last year, the Stadium fell silent.
