Arkadiusz Milik took less than four minutes to give Juventus a one goal lead over Benfica this evening at the Allianz Stadium.
It was a beautiful header from the Polish striker and he is fast proving what a brilliant signing he was.
Juve has got the lead now, let’s hope that they can keep hold of it and add to the scoreline as the match goes on. Three points are essential here and Milik has given us the best possible start.
O Milik não perdoa 😥

Juve’s going no where with Allegri
8 games played
Juve re out of UCL already with just two games played. What a pity
Allegri out! Now!!!
#AllegriOut I knew something like this will happen sooner or later after the rubbish speech he gave after the elimination against villarreal last season I knew we’re going no where with this man called Allegri.
For what ca**o reason a coach would replace Milik with Kean?? It is another perfect example showing that all these outcomes are caused by the stupidness of Allegri! Thank you so much for all these suffers, idiot!!!
Milik is pure quality. Allegri says his job doesn`t feel under threat. I have said since they turned down Conte for him and this very window ignored Italiano
who was out of contract, we were doomed, thanks to agnelli`s incompetence in guaranteeing his job even if we didn`t get top 4 last season. The players can get us maybe top 4, maybe, and save some pride, if they stay fit and Lord Octagon selects them . We will be in the europa league. We have to win despite allegri`s lack of instruction, style or direction. #AllegriOut all day every day. If this is a rebuild it`s built on the most rotten of foundations. People come and go, Juve remains. Forza Juve.
I’ve been an Allegri supporter for quite a while now, but this has gone too far.
I get it that we have lots of injured players, but even with those back and healthy, I don’t think we’ll see a change in system or any attacking play.
I don’t blame Allegri-only for this mess, but the whole club.
Juventus has always been an Italian-based club and now we have a bunch of foreigners running around pretending to play football.
How hard is it to bring in a younger and more proactive Italian coach, i.e. De Zerbi and tailor an Italian team for him?
I love Szczezcny – but I would let him go instantly and put Perin as first choice keeper with a backup younger Italian keeper.
Defense – Gatti and Pellegrini on the left side, Bremer and Danilo on the right side (Italian connection on the left, Brazilian on the right) until we find suitable Italian defenders.
Backup defenders – Rugani, Bonucci, Scalvini, De Sciglio (until we find more suitable fullbacks)
Midfield – Paredes with Miretti and Locatelli beside him.
Backups – Fagioli, Pessina Fratesi, Castrovilli
I would let go all of Rabiot, MccKenie, Pogba etc
Attack – Vlahovic with Chiesa and Berardi beside him
Backups – Milik, Pinamonti, Kostic, Kaio Jorge, Matias Soule (provided these two start getting minutes).
I would get rid of every single one that isn’t mentioned in this list without blinking twice.
Focus training on physical endurance, man to man and high pressure when the opposition organizes an attack, and zonal defense for set pieces.
3 attacking vertical patterns for each attacking third + crosses tactics
Focus more on running with short passes, more running up the pitch, and less tactical systems.
Time to start utilizing technically gifted players to start playing a more attacking and flowing football.
2 systems to be utilized
4-3-3 and 4-3-1-2
Vlahovic and Milik can play in the latter with Berardi/Chiesa with total freedom to roam behind them switching between middle, left and right depending on how the attack goes.
More than enough midfielders for the 3 other slots.
