Juventus' critics blowing club's slump in Serie A, UCL out of proportion

Juventus head coach Massimiliano Allegri blasted his side after a 1-0 defeat to Genoa in Serie A.

Juventus have only picked up seven points from the past five games -- "What a disaster," in the eyes of some, but such criticism is hyperbolic. They have still played better than most of the sides they have faced.

The first thing most have said about Massimiliano Allegri's Juve is that they're less intense and the hunger has gone. Intensity can be a beautiful thing and it can lead to trophies, as shown by the likes of Juve, Borussia Dortmund and Atletico Madrid, to name a few. However, it can also...

Juventus' slip allows Roma back into the Serie A title race

With Juventus losing late to Genoa, Roma is now tied atop the Serie A standings with the Turin giants.

Walking towards the Curva Sud to salute the fans with the rest of his teammates after Roma's 2-0 win against Cesena on Wednesday night, midfielder Radja Nainggolan looked up at the Stadio Olimpico's scoreboard. On it were the results from around Serie A and one in particular caught his eye: Genoa 1-0 Juventus.

By Nainggolan's side was his coach, Rudi Garcia. Putting his arm around the boss, the Belgium international pointed it out to him. They both looked at each other in pleasant surprise. After...

Genoa rally to upset Juventus on Gigi Buffon's 500th appearance

Former Premier League goalkeeper Shaka Hislop assesses the achievements of Sao Paulo's Rogerio Ceni and Juventus' Gigi Buffon.

Defeated for the first time in Serie A this season, Juventus lost 1-0 away to Genoa on the day Gianluigi Buffon made his 500th appearance for the club. Unable to celebrate but forced to commiserate, bad defending, inefficient attacking and Juve's usual disinterested performance in the first half led to a surprising loss.

There is something rather special about Gian Piero Gasperini's Genoa. Aggressive, tough and capable, they press high up the pitch, are deliciously organised and fear no opponent....

Ancelotti triumphs, van Gaal's progress, Dortmund disappoint, more

The ESPN FC panel discuss the player ratings following El Clasico.

You can't really call Real Madrid's clasico win a tactical victory.

That's because frankly, manager Carlo Ancelotti -- as he promised ahead of the game when he said there would be "no surprises" -- did nothing particularly fancy that night. His XI -- with Isco in for the injured Gareth Bale -- picked itself. (Or, if you're really, really cynical, you might say a man named Florentino Perez picked it.)

What Madrid did was execute and figure out a way to get a lopsided, top-heavy lineup to work against...

Llorente's confidence gets boost, but Palermo win was too easy for Juve

Fernando Llorente celebrates his goal with Kwadwo Asamoah during Juventus' 2-0 win over Palermo.

It would be good to say that Juventus faced stiff competition in their 2-0 win over Palermo on Sunday but the truth is the Sicilians came to Turin to avoid embarrassment rather than having a go at the champions.

With Palermo showing no ambition or interest in taking hold of the ball to create their own chances, it was a one-sided affair, and this brings with it wider issues about the state of Serie A football and the Champions League.

Italian teams are struggling in Europe's premier competition...

Questions persist as Juventus slump to another Champions League defeat

ESPN FC's Raphael Honigstein breaks down Juventus' losing performance against Olympiakos.

Is it fear? Poor tactics? Individual mistakes? It's certainly something as Juventus slumped to another defeat in the Champions League, losing 1-0 to Olympiakos in the Karaiskakis Stadium.

Carlos Tevez instantly spoke of changing the mentality of this group when questioned about the defeat after the game. A team capable of astonishing performances in Serie A, Juventus are renowned for playing a confident and mesmeric brand of football. They push forward in all directions, their defence alert and sturdy...
