The Juventus was one of the protagonist clubs during this transfer window session. Many important departures have arrived such as those of Paulo Dybala or Matthijs De Ligt. But during this transfer window, the Old Lady seems to have made a transfer window for Max Allegri.

That is to say a transfer window of confirmed players: Di Maria, Pogba, Kostic, Paredes, Bremer with all the same the purchase of some young players like Cambiaso or Gatti. We will have to see if this will allow Juventus to return to the front of the stage in Italy and in Europe.

DV9 is a formidable goalscorer. In form since the start of the season with 4 goals in 4 Serie A matches, the Serbian player will be one of the major assets of this team against Paris Saint-Germain.

Physical and fast profile, the Parisian defense will have a client in front of it. Recently, the former Fiorentina player has shown to be very comfortable with free kicks (two in a row). Dusan Vlahovic is already one of the best number 9 on the football planet.

The Juventus by Max Allegri does not have a fixed game system. The most used remains the 4-3-3 but this team can also play in 4-4-2 or 4-2-3-1. The least efficient remains the second scheme because the Old Lady does not have the squad to play in this system but the bianconero coach often likes to put McKennie and Rabiot as wingers.

Given the characteristics of the workforce available, the 4-3-3 remains a priori the best solution. Here is the possible XI in this system (depending on the injuries): Szczęsny; Danilo-Bonucci-Bremer-Alex Sandro; Locatelli-Paredes-Miretti; Di Maria – Vlahovic – Kostic

Juventus did not intervene in the transfer window to take a left side. This is the big weak point of this team. Alex Sandro is the holder but the Brazilian has only been a shadow of himself for several seasons.

In difficulty offensively but also defensively, Juve clearly lacks reliability in this position. Very worrying in view of the shock at theParis Saint Germain.

Since the return of Max Allegri, the Juventus is a team that is not really one. A group without a game identity, which gives the impression of taking no pleasure in the field. Is the bianconero coach the only culprit? No, but his responsibilities are numerous. The Juve DNA that the football world knew seems to have been completely lost.

The 2021-2022 season has demonstrated this. La Vecchia Signora broke negative records after negative records without actually activating the burst of pride option. Max Allegri and his team are therefore called upon to achieve a great season.

Since his return to Juventus, Max Allegri has not been able to impose any style of play. To put it simply, the Bianconeri are spinning in a vacuum.

The most serious seems to be the lack of a base posed by the Tuscan coach and his staff during the 2021-2022 season: no visible sign of improvement in the construction of the game. The reality is reflected on the ground, no coincidence that the Vecchia Signora ended his first season since 2011-2012 without winning a single trophy. Here too, an important signal will have to be sent during the 2022-2023 financial year.
