Juventus Update: March 2017

With the season heading into the business end, March had plenty of chicanes for Juventus to navigate, but I'm glad to say we have done so successfully.

We are in the quarter-finals of the Champions League after beating Porto 1-0 at the Juventus Stadium, which completed a 3-0 aggregate win, and we will be hosting Barcelona tonight!

In Serie A, we are still top of the table with 77 points from 31 games, with Roma six points behind. We only played three league games, claiming two wins (against AC Milan and Sampdoria) and a draw (against Udinese).

April has so far brought us a win and a draw in Serie A, claiming a point at Napoli and getting a 2-0 win over Chievo.

We also played Napoli in the semi-finals of the Coppa Italia, losing 3-2 to them in the second leg - Gonzalo Higuain scored our goals - but still reaching the final thanks to an aggregate win of 5-4.

There weren't many games in April due to the international break, which brought us bad news as winger Marko Pjaca injured his knee in Croatia's friendly loss to Estonia. He suffered a torn cruciate ligament and external meniscus, which will see him out of action for about six months.

But on the positive side, 19-year-old Boca Juniors midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur has completed his medical at Juve ahead of a € 9m summer move. The Under-20 Uruguay International is one of the most promising midfielders in the world so his signing is great for the club.

In between the two Napoli games, Higuaìn spoke about his reasons for leaving the Partenopei and joining Juventus. He said: "I am happy with this choice because I reached a certain serenity, on and off the football. It was what I tried and I did. On a personal level, I feel I made the right step. "

Our MVP for March is Juan Cuadrado. It was a positive month, but April will be even more important in the season of our Juve!
