Juventus will be looking to return to winning ways in Serie A when they travel to face Verona on Saturday at 5pm (UK time).
The Bianconeri had a poor start to the season but pulled themselves back up the tale with four wins in the row. However, they have endured a mini slump of late with two winless matches including a 2-1 defeat to Sassuolo in midweek in which they conceded in injury-time. Verona, meanwhile, are just three points and three places behind Juventus having picked up four points from their past two matches.

Allegri hits out at Ronaldo departure timing
Although they have turned things around slightly in Serie A and are flying in the Champions League, Juventus won’t be overly happy with their start to the 2021/22 campaign. The club made a big call in the summer, sacking Andrea Pirlo after just one year and bringing Massimiliano Allegri back to the Allianz Stadium after they failed to win the title for the first time in 10 years.
Things were made even harder for Juventus when Cristiano Ronaldo left for Manchester United having been the club’s top goalscorer in each of his three seasons in Italy, netting 101 goals in 134 games across all competitions. While the departure itself may be overlooked, the timing of it did not go down well at Juventus.
Ronaldo officially joined Man Utd on August 31st, though the deal was reportedly agreed a few days earlier, which meant Juventus did not have long to sign a replacement forward. And Allegri believes Juventus’ season would have been different if Ronaldo had left earlier.
“I learned one thing,” Allegri told DAZN. “The things that are said and the things that are done are interpreted by everyone.
“I believe that (Giorgio) Chiellini said positive things about Cristiano, an extraordinary player who it was an honour to coach, and I have coached many champions.
“It’s normal that on August 28, three days before the end of the transfer market, you don’t have the possibility to replace him. The club did well to get Kean, a player who scored important goals and I’m happy.
“It he had left a month earlier, perhaps the club would have had the opportunity to work in a different way. It’s just a question of the market, it hasn’t created any problems.”
