Game Time Thread: Juventus vs. Catania

Claudio Villa

And we're back to Serie A. Back to find out where there will be another European hangover after another big Champions League victory.

It's also the second-to-last game in the league season before it becomes single digits in the 'matches' remaining' category. If it was horse racing, the track announcer would be warming up his voice for his fabled call right before the thoroughbreds hit the final turn. I think you know where I'm going with this.

Yes, the final stretch is almost upon us. More than two-thirds of the season is gone and now we're about to hit the time of year where every result is only magnified that much further.

And what something ven more hard to believe? After today's match against Catania, it won't be until early next month until Juventus play at home again. No joke. That's almost four weeks —with the aid of an international break — before Juventus Stadium is filled to the gills with tifosi and our favorite in-match songs.

So we might as well win them will we got 'em, right?

You know what to do, boys. Bring home another three points.
