There are always expectations of certain kinds from teams or individuals performing at the highest level. It has many tiers, and almost every team is placed at certain levels according to the ambitions they crave and placed on them by the fans or pundits.
In Serie A, nothing uncanny happened this season. Juventus did exactly what they were supposed to do, and that’s winning the Serie A title.
But still, despite Bianconeri landing their 8th consecutive Scudetto, the season feels falling short of expectations. For the reason that the Old Lady is set to end the season without winning the Champions League, a competition all the Juve fans crave so much.
And we all know Europe was the main reason why Cristiano Ronaldo was prised away from Santiago Bernabeu at first place.
Over to Serie A, Juve can still finish the season on high as they still have the chance to finish the season with 100 points.
It won’t be easy though as Juve need to win all their remaining four games to touch the three-digit mark. Torino are in good form and are unbeaten in the last six games.
As a result, Walter Mazzarri’s team have risen up in the table, and sit at 7th as things stand in Serie A.
Just one defeat has been suffered by the visitors in the last 14 matches, with their last week’s 2-0 win over AC Milan bringing them to within 3 points of Atalanta in fourth place.
