1 The Atletico lesson
The Real Madrid waited twelve years to win the tenth investing enough money to balance the books of an Italian region. But it threatened to blow themselves the coveted Cup by a team that invoices a quarter and with the price of Bale does three transfer markets.
2 The Chelsea lesson
And if Atletico was almost a miracle, it has hit the most crumbling Chelsea of Abramovich era, surpassing in 2011 the Barcelona and Bayern Munchen, proving that sometimes fortune favors the bold. In short, it is hard, very hard, but how would Professor Frederick Frankenstein: “You can do it.”
3 The experience
Compared to Juventus which crashed against Bayern Munchen, future champion, the current one has accumulated much experience in Europe, committing all possible errors that can be committed in cup, underestimating the small teams (Nordsjaelland and Copenhagen) to not close the match when should (Benfica in Lisbon), passing by snatching (Real Madrid at the Bernabeu) and half scams (half plowed field in Istanbul). Getting eliminated is human but keep doing it is diabolical. This Juventus should now be vaccinated. It should …
4 The attitude of Allegri
Claiming that Allegri is a coach more “European” than Conte is a nonsense, because the results are not so different. But from the AC Milan experience, the coach of Livorno should have brought that attitude to the major cups that has characterized always AC Milan, and not Juventus, regardless of who was the coach.
5. Green energy
Pogba, Morata and Coman: young, strong and bold. No awe, and, above all, that magnificent unconsciousness that will free from any inhibitions. For them there is no psychological blocks or taboo: they play to be seen, crave to conquer space and glory. Theirs is pure energy, green gasoline that can go a long way. And Morata, incidentally, has just won the Cup (and not as a spectator).
6 The desire of Gigi
He is ‘the strongest goalkeeper of his era (and perhaps not only of his), has won a World Cup (and has played five!), But he never touched the cup. If there is something missing from Buffon to die is just the Champions League. The desire of the leader usually has the power to drag the others: him and Pirlo could inspire that bit of extra confidence in difficult times.
7 Squad more complete
Compared to the years of Conte, Juventus is presented with a rose more flexible and comprehensive to address the dual commitment. Almost every part is covered by a credible alternative and, in the course of the season, Allegri will determining the best labors, playing his best cards when it matters most.
8 The Revenge
The humiliations of the last years burn up in the pride of those who have, however, demonstrated the ability to win in Italy. To feel repeat: “Conquer the Scudettos because there are no opponents, but in Europe you suffer …” creates a burning sensation in the soul that can become propellant arsonist.
9 The Midfield
Vidal, Pirlo, Pogba, Marchisio, perhaps in other parts of the field Juventus may feel inferior, but in midfield should not blush in no comparison with the largest in Europe. And now there is also Pereyra that promises to grow.
10 The law of sport
Because ultimately it requires the universal code of sport: to believe they can win is mandated by law, otherwise we should not even register. And if your name is Juventus and you do not have a story behind any, that obligation is charged with meanings even greater. The matter of the importance of participating, Boniperti he paraphrased many years ago. And nothing since then has changed.
