They are almost champions of Italy once more—that is not really surprising—but they could also win the Europa League at home. Benfica stand in the way of a good story.
So far, Juventus have played 47 matches. Fatigue is very real.
Manager Antonio Conte has done a good job rotating his squad, sometimes replacing four or five players for a match a few days later. He does not care about the criticism.
“It is certainly a stressful year both mentally and physically,” Conte told reporters (h/t Football Italia) on Sunday. “At the moment we are boosted by challenging for the Scudetto and Europa League, which must give us the strength to reach the end in the best way.”
But there are still some things to consider on the side. Juventus loaned a few of their own this past year, and they’re growing. Simone Zaza, on a co-ownership, scored an important goal for Sassuolo at the weekend as they fight for their Serie A lives, and Ciro Immobile, also on a co-ownership deal with rivals Torino, has scored more goals (19) than anyone else in the league.
