Andrea Pirlo’s Juventus wins, but above all convinces and did not do so since the match against Sampdoria, the very first match, since then some ups and downs that have led to Pirlo and his boys a lot of criticism. The Juventus coach had talked about the season to start and the debut, so it was positive.
THE BEST NEWS – certainly the victory was important but even more to get it without conceding a goal. A clean sheet that had been missing in the league for some time, too long, she went close with Lazio without succeeding in the recovery time but with Cagliari she practically did not risk anything with a perfect teamwork.
THE LIES – it is undeniable that the support on Matthijs De Ligt was fundamental, who took the field for the first time this season but with an immense specific weight, a performance in line with last season’s final, a leader’s behavior, supported very well by Merih Demiral who played his best game from a technical point of view.
ATTITUDE – it was not a single player, however, who stood out, the team as a whole, as compactness, was liked, with little risk, Buffon practically did not make an intervention and everyone lent a hand, from the midfielders to the forwards. The defense was totally new with De Ligt, Demiral, Cuadrado and Danilo playing together for the first time but it didn’t seem like that, on the contrary …
Pirlo himself confirms: “when you win games it is always important to be able to not concede a goal, because it gives you confidence, it gives you a sense of the work you are doing and it gives even more importance. when you don’t score a goal the morale of the boys rises and you can give continuity to what you’re doing “.
In short, if the defense keeps Juve they win, not a novelty, something that we had always supported and that Pirlo knows well, after all, the championships are won in defense.
