Is Juventus buying better than their Serie A title rivals?

June 30, 2022 - 12:20 pm

After a trophyless 2021/2022 campaign, Juventus will be keen to beat their rivals to at least one trophy in the next campaign.

The Bianconeri dominated Serie A for nine consecutive seasons before 2020/2021 and just like online sports betting Malaysia they set a standard for others to follow.

That year, Inter Milan won the league title under Antonio Conte, and they responded by bringing back serial Serie A winner Max Allegri as a replacement for Andrea Pirlo.

His first season was a disaster as it ended without a single trophy, after losing the Super Cup and Italian Cup final to Inter Milan.

The Bianconeri suffered in that campaign because of the poor form of some of their players.

This transfer window offers them a chance to correct that, but are they doing good enough so far?

Players come and go when the window is open, and Juve has already lost Paulo Dybala.

Alvaro Morata might also not return to the Allianz Stadium, which means they have taken away many goals from the squad of last season.

Dybala scored 10 goals and provided 5 assists in the league last season. Morata scored 9 and assisted 7 for the team.

Their 19 goals combined make up a third of Juventus’ 57 league goals in that campaign.

If you lose two important contributors like them, you have to sign replacements to make progress.

Yet Juve has not signed any for Morata, and they have been struggling to complete a transfer for Angel di Maria.

Paul Pogba is another player that will likely move to the Allianz Stadium, but Max Allegri’s men need more firepower.

While Juve struggles to close out deals, Inter Milan has kept Lautaro Martinez and added Romelu Lukaku to their squad.

Milan has added Liverpool hero Divock Origi to their group. These are the two main rivals Juve has for the next league season.

There is still a long way to go before the transfer window closes, and reports have continued to link the Bianconeri with a move for several players.

However, while they get linked, others are buying, and that doesn’t show that they mean business.

The current Juve team needs goals as much as it needs stability in midfield.

A front-three of Di Maria, Federico Chiesa and Dusan Vlahovic is an exciting one to look forward to, but what happens if one of them gets injured?

The league season is very long, and the Bianconeri needs a lot of players who can act as a backup to the starters, and they have to be good enough to bring results.

Juve’s summer business so far doesn’t inspire confidence, and things must change before the campaign starts, or they could be staring at another trophyless season.

    I think we have enough depth to pull through another plague of injuries next season. If a member of the front 3 got injured Soule, Zanimacchia, Ake or even Cuadrado could be an option. We could also easily switch to a midfield diamond.

    Firstly, I liked what you just wrote. Secondly, I belief that we are doing fine, I am not sure if better than Inter because they are getting Lukaku back and from my point of view with that guy back at Inter is the strongest Italian squad, also, I am sure Beppe Marotta have a few more cards to play to buy more players. I am certainty that we are doing better than AC Milan I don’t see Origi as a threat like Lukaku, anyway AC Milan will be a decent opponent since they are the current Italian champions and Paolo Maldini is managing really well his team. When it comes to Juventus Di Maria and Pogba are a good deal, because they are coming for free, and from that perspective Juventus is doing great. If there come 4 additional players like Koulibaly, Paredes, Zaniolo and a good left back like Palmieri or Marcos Alonso, Juventus squad will be as strong as Inter. The only thing is that I don’t see from where Juventus will get cash to buy all of them.

    Plumberson Failieri and Alonso are not good left backs – they are scraps and rejects. There’s a reason Chlesea want both of them out – they are garbage. Parepiss is a pathetic player, and we should not be helping PSG fund part of their mercato by giving them money to buy that useless abomination. I do agree regarding Zaniolo and Koulibaly as they can actually raise the level of the squad.
