The month of November treated Juventus quite well. So much so that Antonio Conte's squad began and ended the month with the same amount of goals allowed in league. That's pretty good ,right? I think it's pretty good to throw up a big donut in the goals allowed column.
Now it's December and Juventus are looking to keep the good vibes going. The month's first day brings us the first bianconeri on bianconeri game of the year for Juventus as Udinese rolls into Turin looking to build off their lone win of November.
Different circumstances, different positions in the table. Juventus, with some help from our friends in Rome, have taken back the spot they've occupied for the better part of the last two seasons. It feels good to be back at the top of the table. What feels even better? Staying there for a really long time.
There's only one way to do that — keep winning.
And let's be honest, do Juve really want to faceplant with a curva full of kids? Come on!
Lineups will be posted RIGHT HERE when they become available. I'll just go out on a limb and predict that Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente will partner in the attack. I don't know what it is, I just have a hunch that Conte will keep letting The Beauty & The Beast combination flourish as he we head to the season's midway point.
(Okay, maybe I do know what it is, but don't tell anybody.)
