Juventus Slump Has Reached Historical Proportions

Juventus have been in a freefall ever since dropping points versus Empoli and losing Inter, de facto kissing goodbye to their Scudetto aspirations. Their skid that started back at the end of January has yet to end. They have won just once in the last eight matches.

Per TuttoSport, the Bianconeri are in the midst of one of their most lackluster moments in recent history. They had equally poor runs of results under Claudio Ranieri, Ciro Ferrara, and Alberto Zaccheroni. In the last 40 years, there have been worst stretches only with Claudio Lippi at the helm twice: in 2001, when they prevailed once in ten games but still won the title, and in 1998, when the coach resigned. The current one isn’t at risk, though.

Juventus have collected 7 points in the last 8 matchdays, scoring 9 goals and conceding 11. They have picked up 59 in 29 tilts. They are level with what they had done on the pitch last season while being overwhelmed by their legal troubles, Il Fatto Quotidiano points out.

The Old Lady has fallen to third place. It has an eight-point lead over fifth place, while Atalanta, which occupy the sixth one, are 12 points behind. However, La Dea has played one fewer game.

Our Take on Juventus

The silver lining of their slump, which is mostly caused by their inability to get the offense and defense to function properly simultaneously, is that it will make moving on from Massimiliano Allegri a lot easier.
