Juventus Update: April 2017

What a month April has been - and May is going quite well too!

On 5 April, Juventus qualified for the Coppa Italia final, despite losing 3-2 against Napoli in the second leg - a Gonzalo Higuain double on the night meant an aggregate win of 5-4.

The Argentine then scored two goals in the next game, against Chievo Verona in Serie A, for a 2-0 win.

And then came the best result of the month - a brace from Paulo Dybala and a goal from Giorgio Chiellini gave us a 3-0 win over Barcelona in the first leg of our Champions League quarter-final.

Back to league action and once again the Pipita Higuain strikes two goals for a 2-0 victory over Pescara and another step closer to the Scudetto.

Then the Champions' return - would Barca do what they did against Paris Saint-Germain? No is the answer, a goalless draw at the Camp Nou putting the Bianconeri through 3-0 on aggregate.

After the cup match, Juve beat Genoa 4-0 and drew with Atalanta to remain right on track for the title.

Editor's note: The game against Genoa also saw Tom Gordon Savage - the man who, back in 1903, was responsible for Juve adopting the black and white shirts from Notts - honoured at the Juventus Stadium. To read the account of Andy Black, the man who made it possible, here are part 1 and part 2 of the article.

In May, the impressive AS Monaco were put to the sword in both legs, Juve winning 2-0 and then 2-1 to reach the final in Cardiff, where Zinedine Zidane's Real Madrid lie in wait on 3 June.

At present, Juve are four points clear of Roma at the top of Serie A with two games to go, but attention turns to the Coppa Italia final tonight at 8pm against Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico - and we want to win our third in a row (and 12th overall)!

Our Juve is also proposing a new contract to Mario Mandzukic until 2020, because Super Mario is playing really well, even though he has had physical problems lately.

After the Roma game on Sunday 14 May, Daniele De Rossi said: "We (Roma) would win something, but, maybe in just a few years, we will understand that we are playing against a team (Juventus) who is writing the history of football."

This month MVP was again Paulo Dybala. This month, Juve must be careful to not lose points in the championship and play well in the Coppa Italia final! We are still in competition on all three fronts! FORZA JUVE!

juventus are flying high at the minute, they have sold and reinvested very wisely and the team spirit is very impressive. i would not bet against them winning the treble this season. they seem to win everything when the form is this good and i read the other night that its been ages since they lost at their ground in the league.
