Juventus welcomes Christmas festive and enters winter break with joy after they defeated Cagliari on a 2-0 match score. An opening goal from Moise Kean and a decisive goal from Federico Bernardeschi helped the Old Lady secure a win at home in the Serie A football match. Ending the year with a win, coach Massimiliano Allegri says January is going to be an intense month.
With this victory, Juve is now placed fifth with 34 points. Fourth place is now four points away at the midpoint of the season despite the horrendous start to this campaign. However, next month sees league games against Napoli, AS Roma, and AC Milan, with a Super Coppa clash against Napoli as well.
Talking about next year, 2022, fixtures, Allegri said: “We went on a good run after the first three games. We know January will be an intense month. I would be happy to reach the end of February with this gap so we can challenge for the top four. I would be very pleased with that situation.”
He added: “We have a lot of head-to-head clashes in January and February, so after that our fixture list could become simpler, while the others all face each other. We had 11 points in head-to-head clashes, but where we’re missing points is in the other fixtures.”
