“Juventus flare-ups only after going behind.” Justified criticism levelled at Juve -Juvefc.com
Posted On April 4, 2021
Italian journalist Riccardo Cucchi has reacted to Juventus’ 2-2 derby draw with Torino.
The Bianconeri entered the game looking to return to victory after their 1-0 loss to Benevento ahead of the international break.
Andrea Pirlo’s men were already 10 points behind Inter Milan in Serie A and faced a side from Turin who have spent much of this season battling relegation.
Fans would have expected the champions to put in a significantly improved performance and get all the points.
But typically based on recent trends, they struggled in the game and needed Cristiano Ronaldo to score a late leveler to spare their blushes.
Juventus now appear to have a poor start to matches and have to fall behind before they can show their best form.
Cucchi refers to this in his tweet about the match, but admitted that Torino gave a very good account of themselves in the match.
He tweeted: “He takes it back #Ronaldo. #Juventus outbreaks only after being behind. More competitive spirit than clarity, however. The #Torino played a great derby. Precious point for pomegranates. # ToroJuve »
This result puts Juventus in a very bad position and it is only a matter of match days before Inter are confirmed as the last Italian champions.
If the Bianconeri don’t improve, they may even miss out on Champions League football.
