Juventus on the wrong side of history following 1-1 draw with Milan
Juventus is off to a very poor start to the Serie A campaign and in the process, they’ve set a record that isn’t exactly something to brag about.
Following a 1-1 draw with AC Milan on Sunday, the Old Lady have now conceded at least once in 18 straight league fixtures. To put that into perspective, no other club in Europe’s top five leagues has pulled this off, per Goal. The run stretches back all the way to March 9th when they were shocked by Porto in the Champions League Round of 16.
Juventus took the lead early against Milan, with Alvaro Morata bagging a terrific opener. But, the Rossoneri stormed back in the second half, with Ante Rebic equalizing in the 76th minute. With the draw, Max Allegri’s men have yet to win a game this term, sitting 18th in the table with a 0-2-2 record. This is also the first time since the 1961-62 campaign where Juve has failed to collect three points through their first four matches.
The post-Cristiano Ronaldo era has not been kind to Juventus, scoring just four times in as many games while conceding six goals. This comes after barely securing their spot in Europe’s most prized competition last season. Although it’s still very early, it’s hard to imagine the Old Lady winning a Serie A title in 2021/22. They’ve looked toothless in the final third and shaky at the back. Allegri certainly has his work cut out for him.
