Juventus eventually wear down Empoli, open up 10-point Serie A lead

Juve were wasteful with most of their chances but did enough to eventually crack Empoli's resolve.

Juventus eventually wore down a good Empoli side to win 2-0 and open a 10-point gap at the top of the Serie A table. Empoli may not be the best going forward but they can be defensively impressive and managed to frustrate Juventus well, closing down effectively while maintaining possession in midfield to ensure Juve's impotency in the first half.

A slow tempo has been Juve's problem this season but the team stepped up a gear in the second half and Mario Mandzukic finally managed to score from...

Leonardo Bonucci returns as Juve look to continue growth vs. Empoli

Paul Mariner sifts through rumours surrounding Ashley Young, Dani Alves, Leonardo Bonucci and more.
Juventus easily dispatched Porto away from home, while Sevilla took a 2-1 win over Leicester, who grabbed a key away goal.

All hail Massimiliano Allegri!

After Juventus defeated Porto, both the Gazzetta dello Sport and Corriere dello Sport praised the tactician who made two vital substitutions to guarantee the Old Lady's 2-0 victory at the Estadio do Dragao on Wednesday.

Despite relentless wins that resulted in first place in the Champions League qualifying group and in Serie A, the coach still opted to introduce a formation that could unleash the talent he boasts within the side. Since the first time Juve deployed...

Shaka Hislop's Power Rankings show little change at the top after contrasting weeks for some of Europe's biggest clubs.

1. Juventus (no change)

After sweeping aside Palermo 4-1 in Serie A, Juventus went to Portugal and, thanks to goals from substitutes Marko Pjaca and Dani Alves, claimed a 2-0 win vs. Porto that gives them total control of the sides' Champions League round-of-16 tie.

2. Real Madrid (no change)

A 2-0 win over Espanyol had the added feel-good factor of Gareth Bale scoring...

Marko Pjaca and Dani Alves come on to lead Juventus past Porto

Gab Marcotti analyses how Max Allegri's 'five-star' attack worked against Porto and if it's viable for Juve going forward.

Juventus inflicted a first home defeat on Porto this season with a mix of maturity and composure to seal an excellent 2-0 result in the first leg of the teams round-of-16 tie.

A moment of sheer madness in the 27th minute saw Alex Telles sent off for two horrendous challenges, leaving the Portuguese side with only 10 men. Since that moment, Porto sought only to defend deep and in numbers to block Juventus from getting an away goal, while neglecting their offensive duties.

Lacking in ideas and playing...

Alex Sandro living up to his billing as 'new Roberto Carlos' at Juventus

With Alex Sandro making a big impact for Juventus, Shaka Hislop addresses the comparisons he's receiving to Roberto Carlos.
Porto have historically struggled against Italians, but they get another crack with high-flying Juventus.

Alex Sandro made a name for himself at Porto before joining Juventus for €26 million in 2015.

Porto are renowned experts at selling players at hefty prices, but not all of those stars proved to be successful in new surroundings.

Manchester City fans still don't understand why Eliaquim Mangala -- who cost the Premier League club £42 million three years ago -- was so highly rated, while the Frenchman is currently struggling on loan at Valencia. Jackson Martinez had a disastrous short spell at Atletico Madrid before Los Colchoneros happily shipped him off to China. Danilo is so error prone...

Mark Donaldson and Craig Burley try to predict this week's UCL fixtures, as Leicester look to curb their struggling form.
Massimiliano Allegri dismisses the notion that Barcelona's loss to PSG makes Juventus favourites in the Champions League.

The Champions League starts all over again for Juventus on Wednesday and the Serie A giants are expected to reach far, if not win, the entire competition. As one of the few sides from the top four leagues that boast domestic and European consistency, this could be the year Juve do something special.

Barcelona are stuttering, Paris Saint-Germain are being outscored by Monaco and Bayern Munich are being criticised for below-par performances in the Bundesliga. Juventus have, despite their flaws, proven...
