Juventus’ relentless pursuit of Serie A continues and there are no signs of it stopping. For sure not this season. The gap between them and their main rivals is huge on the points table. Not to mention the quality at Massimiliano Allegri’s disposal remains as enviable as it ever was.
Right from the start of the 2018-19 season, Juve have run away with the title, not losing in the first 27 league games. Their only defeat of the season came in the last round as Genoa shocked them on their way to a 2-0 win.
But even that loss failed to infuse life back into Serie A as the reigning champions sit 15 points clear of 2nd placed Napoli.
The title looks a formality now for Juve, and they are very much on course to win their 8th consecutive Serie A title.
But Allegri is still under some pressure and it comes from the Champions League. The world knows that Cristiano Ronaldo wasn’t brought over to Italy for the Serie A alone. Juve’s main target is to win Europe. And failing to do that may prove fatal for Allegri.
Juve’s passage to the Champions League glory is defined. They take on Ajax in the quarterfinals with the winner between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City awaits them in the semifinal match.
Empoli, meanwhile, are fighting for their lives this season. They are 17th in the table with just 1 point separating them from the bottom three.
With them facing Juventus away from home, there is every chance that Empoli may drop down into the bottom three.
If Gli Azzurri are to avoid the drop they have to improve their defense. With 54 goals conceded so far this season, it’s the joint worst defensive record in Serie A.
