Juventus's Champions League contest with FC Nordsjælland, which ended in a 1-1 draw, should be the final straw for both the bianconeri and their fans.

In the draw, Juventus players attempted 30 shots, 15 of which were on target, and came away with only one goal (h/t to UEFA.com).

They have tied in each of their three Champions League matches so far. If Juventus are serious about being a top team in Europe, they must do better.

They have tried many different combinations up front, but the answer to the bianconeri's attacking woes may come in the form of a top winter signing.

They have been linked with several of these top players over the last couple months, including Robert Lewandowski and Fernando Llorente, and bringing a top striker to Turin should immediately pay dividends for la Vecchia Signora
