    We played our November Serie fixtures with a clean sheet, the fifth in a row for league play. This season is the best start under the Conte era after 13 games. We will have one final CL match at Galatasaray in December, which will send us to the round of 16. This Sunday, the match against Udinese has been moved to 18:30 as kids will fill out the two curve.

    Serie A Fixtures for December
    • 1 Dec - Udinese
    • 6 Dec - at Bologna
    • 14 Dec - Sassuolo
    • 22 Dec - at Atalanta

    December should be a good month for us. On paper it's a great month, but sometimes reality isn't as nice.

    Juventus-Udinese moved to 18.30
    By Football Italia staff

    Juventus’ game against Udinese has been brought forward by a few hours to allow children into the ‘banned’ Curvas.

    The Nord and the Sud – situated behind each goal – have been closed to regular fans as punishment for territorial discrimination chants aimed at the city of Naples during the 3-0 win over Napoli.

    However, instead of remaining empty, those sections of the Juventus Stadium will be populated by kids.

    As a result, the Lega have agreed to move kick-off from 20.45 local time to 18.30 on Sunday 1 December.

    The Curva Nord was penalised for 90 minutes, while the Curva Sud was given a two game penalty.

    We need to beat Copenhagen first. Then we likely need to draw against Galatasaray but my preference would be to beat them too.

    I'm looking at what's happening to our main competitors. Roma have started to falter, as expected. Napoli are a nice club, but as I anticipated, they lost a lot when Cavani left. They wont be able to hang with us. Milan are clearly not what they once were. Teams like Inter, Lazio, and Fiorentina do not have enough to compete with us.

    As I predicted in the beginning of the season, it looks as if we will retain the Serie A without a great challenge. Although we made some nice signings this offseason in Tevez, Llorente, and Ogbonna, I'm not convinced we did enough to compete with the European big boys. We stand a very realistic chance of exiting after the first round of CL.

    My fear was and remains the same. It's basically status quo for us. Lions in a weakened Serie A; also-rans in Europe.

    Napoli and Roma can still be in it, they're not completely out yet, at least not Roma


    as far as Europe, its the same thing ive been saying....Conte keeps sticking to one thing in serie A and just cuz it works he thinks he can continue....he needs to experiment more with the 4 man backline and be more creative in his game play

    I'll repeat what I said in the beginning of the season. We will retain Serie A without much competition. You will see.

    Following the trend: if you retain 2nd spot, these will be your possible opponents in the R16.

    Bayern
    Arsenal
    Barcelona
    Manchester United
    Chelsea
    PSG
    ATL Madrid

    Bayern and Barca are the ones you don't want any part of. The other are doable, if Juve play to the levels that they can. However, we seem to struggle in Europe.

    26 minutes in and neither Padoin or De Ceglie have put in a good cross yet. Theirs, as one would expect, are crap.

    Buffon gets a fingertip onto Di Natale's chip, after Bonucci totally ********ed that pass back.

    half-time thoughts, the midfield has been a major let down so far. Marchisio is invisible, Padoin and De Ceglie are ineffective. Padoin is just terrible and brings nothing to the game, he actually makes the team worse with how many balls he gives away.

    Llorente is dropping really far back trying to link up with the midfield and Tevez. Chiellini has been pushing up very far as well, more so than usual.

    Not sure how that was a yellow on Llorente.

    Overall, Udinese is doing a good job defending and frustrating the team. Their play is fugly, but it's working.
