Juventus appeared shaky at the start of the 2022/2023 season. Massimiliano Allegri’s team was even labeled mediocre. Whoops!
Juventus started the new season badly. Bianconeri can only get 10 points from 6 Italian League matches, and are stuck in eighth in the standings.
In detail, Juventus could only win twice when they met Sassuolo and Spezia. The rest, Dusan Vlahovic drew against Sampdoria, AS Roma, Fiorentina, and Salernitana.
Juventus’ performance was much worse when competing in the Champions League. The Old Lady went through two matches with a loss!

Criticism also flows over the poor performance of Juventus. One of them came from Giovanni Galeone, Massimiliano Allegri’s mentor.
In Galeone’s view, Juventus is like a mediocre team despite being studded with star players such as Paul Pogba to Angel Di Maria. The absence of the two players due to injury made it even more difficult Bianconeri ambar.
“I said it in the summer and I repeat it today: Juventus are a mediocre team even with Paul Pogba, Angel Di Maria, Federico Chiesa and other injured players,” he told reporters. The Gazzetta dello Sport.
“Without them, Juventus could fall even more and make a bad impression like against Benfica,” he continued.
“If I have to blame Allegri, it’s because of the transfer window. I think he will make his voice heard for sales and new signings. Paredes has been treated like a champion, but he’s not Pirlo.”
“Allegri needed a miracle to go beyond the group stage in the Champions League and even finish in the top four in Serie A,” said Giovanni Galeone.
