Four reasons why Juventus can still believe in Scudetto

After a dismal start to the season, fans and observers alike wrote Juventus off, and understandably so. After all, the Bianconeri seemed sacred, lifeless and incapable of getting results against even the smallest of opponents.

However, a recent domestic appearance saw the club move up to fifth in the table.

At the moment, a Top Four is in the Old Lady’s shooting range, but the Gazzetta dello Sport (via ilBianconero) suggests the team could hit a higher target.

The pink newspaper offers four reasons why Juventus can still dream of winning the Scudetto title at the end of the season.

The first is the newfound solidity at the back. As evidenced during the Derby d’Italia clash, Bremer and Danilo in particular can help the club rebuild the old fortress. Juventus currently have the best defense on paper in Serie A, with just seven goals conceded.

Then there is the appearance of young players (Miretti, Fagioli, Iling-Junior and Soulè) who have managed to add quality and depth to the squad.

The third reason is the return of Federico Chiesa and Angel Di Maria (and Paul Pogba in January), so we will finally be able to witness the “real Juventus”, as Max Allegri has been forced to operate with a depleted squad.

Finally, Manuel Locatelli and Adrien Rabiot have been performing admirably in the middle of the park. This partnership could prove key to the club’s success.
