Game Time Thread: Juventus vs. Siena

New, comments
Paolo Bruno

It's good to be home again. And it's good that Juventus have a game to reacquaint themselves with this whole winning thing before next weekend's gigantic top of the table showdown with Napoli.

That's, of course, what we hope happens. Whether or not Juve actually comply with our wishes is still anybody's guess.

But seeing as they won't be coming off a huge Champions League win a few days earlier and playing their third game in a week's time, you would at least think Juventus will claim all three points against their lesser-known Bianconeri bretheran. And it doesn't hurt that Siena — while they've improved under a new manager — is at basically at the bottom of the Serie A table.

Minor details, right?

Maybe I should have mentioned that fact earlier. It's okay. It's not like Siena has suddenly found themselves in the Serie A relegation zone. It's pretty much been their place of residence — or there around those parts — for the past couple of months. They've lost a whooooole lot of games since December.

Either way, please win, Juventus. It's what you're supposed to do.
