Juventus left Barcelona in shock again after defeating them 3-0 in Turin.

Both sides met for the first leg of their Champions League quarter final clash on Tuesday. The Serie A club almost did a repeat of PSG’s infamous victory but ended up a goal short.

Argentine forward Paulo Dybala – and Man of the Match – scored two great goals in the first half of the game to rattle the Spanish side. Giorgio Chiellini added the third within ten minutes of resumption to seal victory for the hosts.

The result follows Barcelona’s poor away formthis campaign and it establishes the defence of The Old Lady as truly one of the best in Europe. On the other hand, Jeremy Mathieu, Samuel Umtiti and Javier Mascherano were far from their best on the night. Neymar was obvious and he made some nice drives but the opposition managed to stop this efforts.


Juventus secured their 5th successive victory but Allegri is unsatisfied

Juventus continues their dominance in Serie A as the Italian club secured their 5th successive victory after claiming a 2-0 triumph over Cagliari in a match that was played on February 12 at the home stadium of Cagliari in the Sant’Elia Stadium.

This triumph allows Juventus to maintain their significant lead at the top of the top tier Italian League, Serie A as the team of Massimiliano Allegri has collected 60 points from their 24 opening league matches of the season while the 2nd placed team which at this point in time is As.Roma has only gathered 53 points.

Any manager would be incredibly proud to see their squad winning at such a consistent basis and even though Massimiliano Allegri is certainly happy about how his team has been performing, he feels that his players could have scored many more goals and performed much better.

Juventus Ready to Offer Huge Pay Rise to Keep Manager Massimiliano Allegri

Arsenal may be in the search for a new manager come summer, and they have reportedly identified Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri is the perfect choice.

After more than two decades at the club, Arsene Wenger may be set to depart in the summer. His contract runs out in June and there has been no talk about a new deal. Wenger has also stayed tightlipped about his future. It is widely expected that Wenger will become part of the club’s backroom just like Sir Alex Ferguson did at Manchester United when he retired in 2013.

Allegri has been one of the impressive managerial names in the last five years. After managing to guide a relatively poor AC Milan team to its last league title, Allegri has won the Italian Serie A title in the past two seasons.
