Despite winning the Serie A title last season under Maurizio Sarri’s guidance, the club opted to sack the Italian due to their poor Champions League showing in favour of bringing in former star Andrea Pirlo.

Having not coached at the highest level, Juventus will be hoping the respect Pirlo will demand due to his remarkable playing career can get the best out of the players.
Gunning for their 10th straight title and to challenge hard for the Champions League, it’ll be fascinating to see how he fares and how he sets out his team. Securing some impressive new signings in the form of Arthur, Weston McKennie and Dejan Kulusevski, they’ll be hoping this will rejuvenate the squad.
Dealing with some big departures such as Gonzalo Higuain, Miralem Pjanic and Blaise Matuidi, losing this experience and quality in midfield especially will take some replacing.
Crucially, Pirlo’s got a strong support team around him in the form of Igor Tudor, Roberto Baronio, Antonio Gagliardi and Paolo Bertelli, which should massively help him.
Seeing how Cristiano Ronaldo performs under the former legend will offer much intrigue, as they’ll be heavily relying on the Portuguese superstar to inspire them to glory.

Meanwhile, on the defensive end, they should be a tough nut to track, with Wojciech Szczesny in goal being flanked by the likes of Giorgio Chiellini, Leonardo Bonucci, Matthijs de Ligt, Merih Demiral and Alex Sandro.
With the likes of Inter Milan, Lazio, Napoli and Atalanta set to provide fierce competition, Juventus certainly won’t have it all their own way despite being priced at a short 1.90.
One thing’s for sure, though, all eyes will certainly be on Pirlo, eagerly awaiting how he goes in his first campaign with the mighty Juventus.
