Juve's biggest strength is their triangle in midfield consisting of Andrea Pirlo, Arturo Vidal and Claudio Marchisio.
Against Milan, Pirlo continued his downwards spiral, Vidal possibly had his worst game of the season and Marchisio didn't even bother to make the trip up to the fashion capital.
Seriously, I don't even think he touched the ball during the first 30 minutes.
I'm a big fan of the MVP midfield, but tonight they were awful. All of them.
Pirlo, who was greeted by the Milan fans with a chorus of boos, was dispossessed multiple times, misplaced a great number of his passes and failed to orchestrate the attack in his usual manner.
His performances have been less than impressive in recent weeks, and I fear he might be playing too many minutes for a man his age.
Vidal misplaced nearly all of his passes and was a shadow of the player we've grown accustomed to. Milan's Nigel De Jong and Riccardo Montolivo completely took him out of the game.
Marchisio has been struggling with his form for weeks now, and looking back at his performance, he should never have started.
He's a phenomenal player having a hard time on the field at the moment. It happens.
Credit Milan for disrupting what is essentially the heart of this team, but with all three players in good form, this would never have happened.
