We know the fixtures are going to be coming at Juventus in quick order over the next month. It is the only way that Serie A and the Champions League are able to catch things up after starting the season a few weeks late as a result of the springtime shutdown all across Europe.

That means as we sit here on the doorstep of December, Juve’s about to play a lot of games in a very short amount of time.

So far, pretty OK.

Juventus started the final post-international break run of 2020 with a very good win over Cagliari, then a not-so-hot performance led to Alvaro Morata heroics in the Champions League. Thankfully, those heroics allowed Juventus to advance to the round of 16 in Europe’s premier club competition. You can probably guess where we started this week’s podcast episode, right?

On this week’s episode of The Old Lady Speaks, we discuss:

  • Thoughts on Juventus’ first two games coming out of the international break, with two wins coming in two very different kinds of ways.
  • HOLY MATTHIJS DE LIGT, BATMAN!
  • The ever-growing importance of Adrien Rabiot.
  • Your Twitter questions! (Including one from an OG of this long-standing community.)
  • Closing thoughts on the passing of Diego Maradona.
