Juventus exited the Champions League in the group stage but still have Europa League commitments after finishing third in their group.
The Bianconeri are still one of the biggest clubs in the world, so we expect them to try and win that competition.
However, the Europa League is one of the toughest competitions and the Bianconeri will need to be in top form to win the competition.
Considering they have been poor this season, they are still far from the top four in the Serie A table.
Commentator Francesco Oppini believes it would be better for them to forget about success in Europe and focus on qualifying for the next Champions League.
He said through Tuttomercatoweb:
“I would have preferred to leave Europe entirely to dedicate myself to the true and first (perhaps only) goal of the season that the Old Lady now has: fourth place in the league now defined by many as ‘the Champions place’, which for next season It would ensure a great financial aid and above all the possibility of returning immediately to the footballing Europe that matters, that is, up there where Juventus should be”.
Juve FC says
Winning the Europa League would be difficult even though it offers the opportunity to play in the Champions League next season.
Until now, we haven’t been strong enough to compete in Europe and on a national level, which makes Oppini’s opinion sound.
However, the club will decide if it wants to focus on one or both competitions with the human resources it has.
