Game Time Thread: Juventus vs. Catania

lol early kickoffs

Claudio Villa

Let us put the Champions League struggles in the past, shall we?

The unbeaten streak is on the line — again — today when Juventus face Catania in a lunchtime special. Well, in Italy it's a lunchtime special. For us in the States, it's a wake-your-ass-up-in-the-wee-hours-of-the-morning special. Those games always make me so gosh-darn happy!

Or you can tell that I'm just incredibly full of sarcasm at this point and have gone completely off topic.

SO, AS I WAS SAYING.

Juventus look to right the wrongs from Tuesday's Champions League draw in Denmark. Maybe they could score more than one goal if they take about 30 shots our more. That's just a helpful suggestion.

Who knows, though. There's no Marco Motta to bail anybody out this time.
