1 Can Juventus Defend Their Title Once Again?
This year, more so than ever, Juventus finally has serious threats to battle against for their title, in which they have kept for three straight seasons. The difficulty for Juventus this season is exactly how much they are prioritizing Serie A, members within the team have made it a priority to go deep into the Champions League this season. Will that hurt their campaign? Juve’s biggest off season moves weren't who they got, but rather who they kept. Star players, Arturo Vidal and Paul Pogba were almost in the headlines everyday concerning possible transfers, at the end of it all, not losing any of them was huge for the club. The team’s biggest signings included Alvaro Morata from Madrid and Patrice Evra, from Manchester. The biggest question remains, can Massimo Allegri allow his new team to go deep, both into the Champions League and win Serie A, for a fourth year in a row? This is certainly the biggest question facing Serie A this season.
