Del Piero boosts Juventus ChampionLeague hopes

admin 2022-06-09

After the arrival of Dusan Vlahovic,Juventuslegend Alessandro Del Piero sees similarities between the current Juventus team and the Bianconeri squad that reached the Champions League Final in 2017.

Vlahovic hasnt taken long to settle in Turin having scored one goal in his first two appearances with the Bianconeri since his €80m move fromFiorentina.

Vlahovic scored in Juventus 2-0 win overHellas Veronain Serie A last week and forced Ruan Tressoldi to a late own goal that allowed the Bianconeri to qualify for the Coppa Italia semi-finals last night.

Massimiliano Allegri started Vlahovic, Paulo Dybala and Alvaro Morata againstVerona, while the Spaniard was introduced as a sub during the second half of yesterdays Coppa clash with the Neroverdi.

Ive seen similarities between this team and the squad that reached the Champions League Final in 2017, Del Piero told Sky Sport Italia.

They have Dybala, a centre forward and Morata playing wide on the left like [Mario] Mandzukic. The Spaniard never gives up, he runs a lot and helps the team.

They are solid in defence and midfielders have a different attitude. If Allegri can play with all the three strikers up front, then he must do it.

The Tuscan coach changed Juventus tactics in the middle of the 2016-17 campaign playing Gonzalo Higuain, Dybala, Mandzukic and Juan Cuadrado or Dani Alves in attack.

The Bianconeri beat Barcelona in the quarter-finals and Monaco in the semis but lost the Champions League Final in Cardiff 4-1 against Real Madrid.

1st season without Ronaldo & we already starts to look better as a team.

I will not be surprised if we do better in Europe the last 2 seasons with Ronaldo

JuveFella ,Juventusand Ronaldo werent made for each other .Juventus was never the team for him and he was never for us. We made a mistake signing him. If he had continued at Madrid , he would have had a better career as Real Madrid was certainly the team for him.

Dybala is not as good as Del Piero in his primetime. Really hope that Juve can find player like Del Piero in the future.
