Juventus ended February unbeaten, playing five games and notching three wins. The team might not have been firing on all cylinders throughout the short month, but they end it nine points clear of second-placed Roma, who they play on Monday. Bianconeri also play Fiorentina in the semi finals of the Coppa Italia and travel to Borussia Dortmund for the return leg of the Champions League quarterfinals in what should be a momentous and hectic period of March madness.
Here is how February went -
0-0 draw, away at Udinese (Serie A) - Report
3-1 win, home to AC Milan (Serie A) - Report
2-2 draw, away at Cesena (Serie A) - Report
2-1 win, home to Atalanta (Serie A) - Report
2-1 win, home to BVB Dortmund (Champions League) - Stream
We also saw the closing of the winter mercato during this period, where Massimiliano Allegri oversaw the departure of Sebastian Giovinco and the return of Alessandro Matri, along with Juve buying the rights of Daniele Rugani outright and recalling Stefano Sturaro as well.
So using a simple grading scale, how do you think Max did this month? Feel free to consider his tactics, team selection, in-game adjustments and any other criterion where he has been involved. Further, also take into consideration what he's doing with the youth squads and how he has rotated the squad, too.
