Juventus must attack Lyon

Upstart Milan ready for big test vs. Juventus

Unbeaten in their past five, AC Milan are growing up quickly under new manager Vincenzo Montella.

With five wins in eight games to start the campaign, AC Milan sit in third place in Serie A and just five points adrift of leaders Juventus ahead of their showdown at the San Siro on Saturday night.  

It's been a positive start to the Vincenzo Montella era on the whole, with Milan making their best start to a campaign after eight games since 2010. All this with a starting line-up with the youngest average age in Italy's top flight last weekend at 24 years and 231 days, there are several positives...

Gianluigi Buffon continues to defy time when it comes to goalkeeping

Juventus barely got a 1-0 win over Lyon, who dominated the match, FC's Raphael Honigstein discusses the root of their issues.
Gianluigi Buffon made three superb saves to preserve Juve's win at Lyon on Tuesday night.

All of us will have to deal with declining ability as we age. Some of us are dealing with it now, in fact, but really, as long as you're over the age of 20, odds are there are some things you can no longer do. (Thankfully, there are also others you do better.)

For professional athletes, it's a bit different. The ones who make it to the top level have notions of confidence and self-belief drilled into them from a young age. Heck, anyone who has played sports at any level probably recalls some...

Gianluigi Buffon turns in superhuman display to help Juve sneak past Lyon

Juan Cuadrado's goal in the 76th minute gave Juventus a 1-0 victory against Lyon in UEFA Champions League.
Leicester are still unbeaten in Champions League football, while Tottenham are held scoreless at Bayer Leverkusen.
Juventus barely got a 1-0 win over Lyon, who dominated the match, FC's Raphael Honigstein discusses the root of their issues.

If there is any team that knows how to win even when performing badly, it's Juventus.

Forced to suffer until the end, 10-man Juve earned a hard fought 1-0 win over Lyon to guide them back to the top of Group H in the Champions League.

Doing little to merit their favourites tag, Juventus lacked creativity and struggled to penetrate a Lyon side that defended in numbers, asserted their physicality and looked to impose their pace whenever allowed to counter-attack.

Juventus were only awakened from their...

Onus on Max Allegri to field an attacking Juventus lineup against Lyon

Alejandro Moreno and Mark Donaldson take us through the best of Tuesday's matchups in the Champions League.

"Against Juventus, we have a 10 percent chance, at best."

President Jean-Michel Aulas is an ambitious man with aspirations of transforming his Olympique Lyonnais side into one of the biggest clubs in Europe, yet even he recognises the superiority of the team he is set to face next in the Champions League.

Boasting a beautiful new stadium and a clear five-year footballing project, Lyon are a club looking to emulate Juve's business model. Having invested €500 million on infrastructure, the French...

Paulo Dybala on target as Juventus edge past Udinese

Udinese took the lead 30 minutes in, but Paulo Dybala's brace propelled Juventus to a 2-1 win in Turin.
Udinese took the lead 30 minutes in, but Paulo Dybala's brace propelled Juventus to a 2-1 win in Turin.

Juventus ground out a 2-1 win against Udinese on Saturday, needing to rely upon some star veterans to deliver the victory.

Deployed in a 4-4-2 formation, Juve looked both confused and unclear of the new strategy, resulting in plenty of errors and an open game. Taking advantage of the Old Lady's tactical perplexity, an organised and hungry Udinese side opted to attack, looking for their opportunities to make darting runs forward to exploit the gaps and apply pressure on the back line.

The second half...

Claudio Marchisio's return a major boost for Juventus and Max Allegri

Gonzalo Higuain has had a fantastic year in Serie A, scoring 26 goals in 25 games.

Claudio Marchisio is back from injury and could well be included in the squad set to face Udinese on Saturday as the midfielder prepares to begin his 10th season.

Born in Turin and a Juventino since he was a child, Marchisio is the anchor in Juve's midfield. An Italian who combines tactical intelligence with a winning mentality, his absence has been keenly felt, for few boast the vision of Juve's most understated player.

A man who provides direction, he tackles with conviction, releases forwards...
