The Old Lady Speaks Podcast, Episode 70: Juve gets a point in the Derby d’Italia

Juventus made its first trip of the season to the San Siro and came away with a point despite not playing at its best, 1a result that extended the current unbeaten run under Max Allegri to nine games.

We may have had to say goodbye to Juventus’ shutout streak and run of nearly 400 minutes without allowing a goal, but there’s another streak that is still very much present.

With Juventus getting a late Paulo Dybala penalty kick to pull even with Inter Milan and escape the San Siro with a 1-1 draw, we can say that Juve’s unbeaten run has hit nine games. And with a couple of rather friendly fixtures coming up over the next week, there’s the very real chance that said unbeaten streak hits double digits going into a couple of big fixtures before the November international break.

It hasn’t always been pretty from Max Allegri and his squad at times. But, as we discuss on this week’s episode of the podcast, it’s working and it’s getting Juventus points after an extremely tough start to the 2021-22 season. At least for now.

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

  • Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Inter and what to take out of it. The good, the bad, the VAR — everything.
  • Let’s face it, there wasn’t much to be said about the win over Zenit. It was a game played, it wasn’t good and we treated it as such despite the fact that Juve actually won.
  • Sometimes Max Allegri’s lineup choices make perfect sense. Other times, they confuse you. Either way, we just have to live with it.
  • A two-month job performance review for a certain Max Allegri, whose team is now on the brink of cracking the top four after a very tough start to the season.
  • Twitter questions! Including ones about Paulo Dybala’s return to the field, Juve’s Champions League chances and a debate over what’s for breakfast.
