Juventus

Juventus stand to gain more than a semifinal with a win at Monaco

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol believes the combination of a tight defence and the attack of Carlos Tevez will be enough for Juventus to hold off Monaco in the second leg of their Champions League clash.
The ESPN FC team discuss the second legs of the Champions League quarterfinals. Shaka Hislop expects a classic defensive match from Juventus and a controlled match from Barcelona against Paris Saint-Germain.

No longer a dream but an obligation, Italy and beyond expect Juventus to defeat Monaco on Wednesday night. Not only are they the champions of Italy and about to be crowned the same again for the fourth year running, but Juve's experience is greater, their players are better and the style of play is more beautiful.

Progression in the competition will help the club improve on a sporting level, but the financial rewards can hardly be ignored either. The Bianconeri have already made €77.5m...

Juve ease past Lazio to warm up for Champions League decider vs. Monaco

Juventus eased past Lazio on Saturday to continue their march towards the Serie A title.

Juventus' 2-0 win at home to Lazio on Saturday night was just the result and performance required to maintain confidence ahead of their Champions League showdown with Monaco.

High-flying Lazio had won eight games on the bounce ahead of the trip to Turin but were comprehensively beaten by an impeccable Juve. Stefano Pioli may be a great coach in charge of a well-balanced team but when presented with a real challenge, Lazio's limitations were exposed.

Chelsea plan to use Oscar as makeweight in £60m Paul Pogba deal

Chelsea midfielder Oscar says he is happy at the club and has no plans to leave, amid rumours of interest from some of Europe's top clubs.

As the summer window draws ever closer, the transfer rumours and gossip continue to spread ...

Oscar the makeweight

For some months now, Oscar has continually been rumoured to be the next of manager Jose Mourinho's attackers to add "former Chelsea player" to his title. So frequent has this buzz been that Mourinho took time in his news conference on Friday to insist that he "does not want to sell" the Brazilian.

Yet here we are, analysing another report of Oscar heading to reigning Italian champions...

Juventus face a lively Lazio with the Serie A title within their grasp

ESPN FC's Craig Burley says it would be a disaster if Juventus failed to reach the semifinals of the Champions League.

Ordinarily you would never expect Roma fans praying for a Juventus win but on Saturday afternoon, those flying the Giallorossi flag will be praying for just that as the champions face Lazio.

The other Roman side are in a terrific period of form, developing and growing into a fine unit of players with a terrifying winning mentality. They have emerged as the closest challengers to Juve and those who doubted coach Stefano Pioli have been proven wrong.

The one criticism people have levelled at the former...

Juventus use intelligence to secure first leg victory over Monaco

Juventus left-back Patrice Evra praises his side following their 1-0 victory over AS Monaco.

Was it a penalty? Was it a red card? So many questions, such intelligent tactics, but at the end of the first 90 minutes, it was Juventus that walked away with a 1-0 win against Monaco and deservedly so based on the number of chances they fashioned.

Monaco winger Nabil Dirar upset the home fans when he referred to Arsenal as a better side than Juventus. Italians thought Borussia Dortmund was a harder test for the Old Lady than Monaco would be, yet here the two teams stand, in the quarterfinals...

ESPN FC's Tommy Smyth reviews Juventus' 1-0 win over AS Monaco, where Arturo Vidal's second half penalty would prove to be the decisive goal for Juve.
Arturo Vidal made no mistake with this second-half penalty kick in Juventus' 1-0 victory over AS Monaco.

It was far from easy at the Juventus Stadium despite the home side edging AS Monaco in a 1-0 win. Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri expected nothing less.

The Serie A champions vowed not to make the mistake of underestimating their opponents, a trap that Arsenal fell into. "Monaco were a surprise but they aren't anymore," Allegri explained on the eve of the game. Saturday's defeat to Parma served as a timely warning of what can happen if you take even a team 57 points worse off than you too lightly,...
