November did not start in the best way for Juventus, but manager Massimiliano Allegri went for something radical - he inserted players like Douglas Costa, Medhi Benatia and Blaise Matuidi in the starting XI, while pulling the likes of Paulo Dybala and Alex Sandro off the bench.
This 'breakthrough' gave its positive signals, 3-0 against Crotone in the league, then a 1-0 victory in Naples in the big-match Napoli-Juve, decided by Gonzalo Higuain, who also had a broken hand.
On December 5, Juventus qualified for the Champions League round of 16, beating Olympiacos 2-0 in Greece.
In the last 16 we will play against Tottenham Hotspur, the first match will be at Allianz Stadium on February 13th, the return will be on March 7th at Wembley.
Having beatem Napoli, Juve then had the chance to return to the top of the table - however, it finished 0-0 between Juve and Inter in Turin.
In our last league match Juve won 3-0 against Bologna, with a splendid free kick by Miralem Pjanic, Mario Mandzukic's goal and Matuidi's first goal with Juventus.
The Bianconeri are now second in the league, +1 on Inter. On Wednesday, Juve successfully navigated the Coppa Italia last-16 tie with Genoa and will now face city rivals Torino in the quarter-finals.
The injury situation is on stand-by: Mandzukic has a calf injury, Mattia De Sciglio a thigh problem and Gianluigi Buffon a muscle strain, but they should have less serious problems than Benedikt Howedes.
The German defender, who had made his debut with Juve against Crotone, has again a lesion of the rectus femoris and he should remain out for at least 2 more weeks.
But there are also good news: Marko Pjaca returned to the squad list for Juventus-Bologna on the 17th day of Serie A after a 9-month layoff with a knee injury.
Meanwhile, Juve are also moving forward in the football trasfer-market: Liverpool midfielder Emre Can will see his contract expire in June, and Juve's society may already have an agreement to sign him on a free.
Mattia Caldara will arrive to Juventus in June once his loan with Atalanta finishes, while Leonardo Spinazzola could already arrive in January, given the possible departures of one between Kwadwo Asamoah and Alex Sandro.
Dybala's situation is complicated: he had started very well, he had reached 10 goals in Serie A after a few games, then he had a drop in form.
He changed his agent and now, according to newspapers, the Argentine’s manager would have offered him to Paris Saint Germain. Meanwhile, we are waiting to see the best of Dybala again because we need his magic!
