The Old Lady Speaks Podcast, Episode 192: Juve head to historical bugaboo at Genoa

Heading to the Marassi has not always been as simple as it may seem no matter where Genoa (or Sampdoria) are in the table, but Juventus will try and make it 11 games straight without a loss to wrap up their run of Friday fixtures.

Can you hear that, my friends? It’s the sound of the third of three straight Friday night games about to arrive on our doorstep. The thing is, though, this one won’t be at the Allianz Stadium and in front of a nice and friendly hometown crowd. This one, my friends, will be at a place in which some goofy things have happened over the years and is very much the kind of stadium you’d consider a place that makes you feel a bit uneasy.

Call it a bugaboo.

Call it a trap game that lies on the horizon.

But now we’re about to hit the middle of December and a stretch of games both before, during and after the holidays that can certainly see Juventus extend their current 10-game unbeaten run and, at the very least, keep pace with league leaders Inter. There may be craziness and complete unpredictability going on behind Juve in the standings, but there’s one thing for certain: Max Allegri’s squad just seems to chugging along these days.
