Juventus will welcome Bologna to Turin this weekend with Max Allegri under serious pressure after another loss in the league already leaves them winless in Europe and all the way down in eighth after seven games with them losing again last time out to Empoli.
Allegri really is on thin ice as the head coach of Juventus right now after such a disastrous beginning to the season. They did manage to hammer Sassuolo 3-0 on the opening day, but by losing to Benfica 2-1 and Paris Saint-Germain 2-1 in the Champions League, they are also looking in the face of dropping into the Europa League if things don’t change for them.
It was Monza who beat them last time out in what was their first-ever win in Serie A. Angel Di Maria was sent off that day and he is now not available for this one. It was, however, Juventus’ only loss in Serie A this season, but by also drawing four, there is not much to boast about at all. They’ve also let in five goals so far.
As for Bologna, they have finally got a win this season after defeating Fiorentina 2-1 two games back when Marko Arnautovic and Musa Barrow scored from behind for the club against Fiorentina - Arnautovic is now on six goals in Serie A and on course for a stunning run in the Golden Boot race if things carry on for him like this.
Regardless, Bologna are sitting 16th in the league right now and have lost three games so far and also drawn three too. On the other hand, by scoring seven times, they are the second-highest scorers inside the bottom half, and have only scored two goals fewer than that of Juventus’ tally of nine
