Juventus' nightmare season continues with injuries to Weston McKennie and Fredrico Chiesa in loss to Atalanta

What a week it has actually been for Juventus. Things were searching for for them after beating Lazio. Then they suffer their worst ever Champions League defeat ever in a 4-0 loss to Chelsea. It can’t become worse right? Well, how about being under examination for monetary scams. And for the cherry ontop, throughout a 1-0 loss to Atalanta, both Weston McKennie and Fredrico Chiesa were withdrawn with injuries.

Chiesa was secured at halftime with a thought left leg concern while McKennie was subbed in the 64th minute with a best knee sprain. Both will go through additional scans however these are huge losses for Juventus. Chiesa is an irreplaceable gamer and supervisor Max Allegri has actually regularly called McKennie among his essential midfielders. There will not be much downtime either with a match versus Salernitana beginning Tuesday as double video game weeks are upon us.

Moise Kean will likely deputize for Chiesa while McKennie’s replacement will depend upon the picked development due to his adaptability. But as a brand-new concerns threaten Allegri’s 2nd stint with the club, something needs to offer faster than later on. For the United States males’s nationwide group, there is likewise a lot riding on the result of McKennie’s scans with World Cup Qualifiers versus El Salvador, Canada and, Honduras at the end of January.

Meanwhile the match itself marked another house loss for Allegri’s side, their 3rd of the season. Their defense carried out properly enough regardless of quiting an objective. The group just yielded 7 overall shots worth 0.49 xG. On another day they extremely well may have kept a tidy sheet and not yielded to a Duvan Zapata strike in the 28th minute. The issues began the assaulting side. With Chiesa not able to play in the 2nd half, Juventus were merely not able to produce any great chances and were left helplessly flailing method from range. Sure, they handled 15 shots, however just 2 wound up on target. Their xG was just 0.85 overall regardless of needing to chase after the video game in the house for over an hour.

Specifically, Chiesa’s replacement in the 2nd half, Fernando Bernadeschi was absolutely not able to affect the match. Despite taking 3 shots, the xG worth of those efforts was just 0.11, showing issues emblematic for the entire group. Juve merely have no assaulting concepts. This is specifically worrying considered that they were playing Atalanta, a group themselves not precisely understood for being protective stalwarts. Even when they’re winning, Atalanta play a run and weapon design with wingbacks getting up the field, straining the wings and assaulting to attempt and extend a lead. If Juve can’t break them down, how are they going to start to assault more dedicated defensive sides.

So, if you’re keeping track in the house, Juve’s week is now over, and they have actually got 2 losses, 5 objectives yielded, absolutely no objectives scored, 2 injuries, and one criminal examination to handle. Maybe next week will be much better?
