Juventus Update: September 2017

Juventus's summer transfer business ended with a reinforcement in midfield, Blaise Matuidi, who came from Paris Saint-Germain and chose number 14, and a defender, Benedikt Howedes, who came from Schalke 04 and chose shirt number 21.

Following the closure of the transfer market, our competitive fixtures started: in the Italian Supercoppa final, Juve lost 3-2 to Lazio, with a Paulo Dybala brace not enough to win.

Dybala, aka "La Joya" (the jewel), is playing his first season with the number 10 shirt. "It's an honour," Dybala, who started the season very well, told the press.

Serie A started with Juve-Cagliari and finished 3-0 for us Bianconeri. Juve then won again in the next two league matches against Genoa and Chievo.

Up next was the Champions League group stage, with Barcelona, Olympiacos and Sporting Lisbon in our group.

The first game was in Catalonia, where Barca beat us 3-0. At Camp Nou, Mattia De Sciglio was injured and will be out for about 40 days.

After that game we won the three successive league matches, against Sassuolo, Fiorentina and against Torino, once again proving Turin is a black and white! We then won our second CL match, a 2-0 victory over Olympiacos.

On the 7th day of Serie A we draw 2-2 with Atalanta, goals by Federico Bernardeschi (first goal for Juve) and Gonzalo Higuain.

At present, Napoli are top of the league table by two points. However, Dybala is top of the goalscoring charts with 10 goals.

On October 14, we will head to the Allianz Stadium in Rome to face Lazio.

Meanwhile, off the pitch, the authorities decided the future of our president, Andrea Agnelli.

Andrea, accused of selling tickets for matches to 'mafioso' organisations, was banned for one year (disqualification), plus a 20,000 euro fine and a 300,000 euro fine for Juve.

The Juve players who are currently injured are Sami Khedira and Claudio Marchisio, who will return shortly; Miralem Pjanic, who is to be evaluated; De Sciglio, Howedes, who should be available in a couple of weeks, and Marko Pjaca, who suffered an ACL injury in March and is on the mend - within a month we could see him at last.

Juve are also expecting the return of Douglas Costa back to his best and, with the international break, he has time to rest.

Our next goals are to return to the top of the league and progress in the Champions League!
