After a catastrophic week for Juventus losing a classic against AC Milan and then surprisingly falling unexpectedly against Maccabi Haifa for the Uefa Champions League, a defeat that puts them on the tightrope in the competition and could lead to elimination, the Turinese managed to recover on a key date in Serie A and move up important spots in the general table.
From ninth they surpassed their rival Inter Milan and are now seventh. It was enough for them to move up two positions, but the main thing was that at the right time they found solutions when they needed it most in a difficult city derby against Torino. It hasn’t been the best season for Massimiliano Allegri, but he can gradually recover.
Juventus, Massimiliano Allegri and their managers know that recovery in Serie A will be slow, but having beaten Torino is vital for their aspirations. During the 90 minutes, Juan Guillermo Cuadrado started and performed in a great way with the captain’s armband again. The one from Necoclí, Antioquia participated in the action of the only goal of the Serbian, Dusan Vlahovic.
For Juan Guillermo Cuadrado it has not been an easy season either. He has had to endure incessant criticism, and an expulsion that conditioned him for reacting aggressively against the Salernitana. However, he celebrated a victory in the Turin classic, and left a good feeling that the Italian press highlighted. “It’s the unpredictable variable in Allegri’s 3-5-2,” Tuttomercatoweb wrote, rating him a 7 in scoring.
And it is that, Juan Guillermo Cuadrado was the different one in the first part when little happened he dared with a series of dribbles that made the defenders dizzy, and a whiplash that passed very close to one of the goalposts. In turn, he participated in Dusan Vlahovic’s goal by sending a corner into the area, Danilo headed in and at the far post the Serbian shot deep.
Finally, they added, “sometimes it looks for the bottom, in other plays it waits. It’s not always accurate, but at least it’s on the piece. An example to follow in these dark times: the goal that decides the game comes from his corner”. Juan Guillermo Cuadrado may be living his last months as a Juventus player. His performance will speak and to continue he would have to make an economic sacrifice.
