Juventus closed 2020 with a bitter defeat at Allianz Stadium when they hosted Fiorentina in Week 14 of Serie A, Wednesday (23/12) early morning Western Indonesian Time. Il Bianconeri lost by a landslide score 0-3.

Andrea Pirlo’s boys lost through goals scored by Dusan Vlahovic (3 ‘), an own goal from Alex Sandro (76’) and goals from former Juventus player, Martin Caceres (81 ‘). The defeat got worse because Juventus played with 10 players since Juan Cuadrado received a red card.

Juventusindeed, 54 percent superior ball possession, 13 attempted kicks and three shots on target, but none of them resulted in a goal against Fiorentina. Andrea Pirlo has a reason why his team’s performance is poor against La Viola.

“It is definitely not an alibi (the defeat to Fiorentina). We started with the wrong attitude and if you do that you will have this bad situation,” Pirlo told Sky Sport Italia.

“It could have happened in the last game before Christmas to start thinking about the holidays, but we were slow and unfocused, so we couldn’t help but lose.”

Cesare Prandelli’s Fiorentina gave Juventus the first defeat this season in Serie A. In addition, Juventus are also too dependent on the Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.”It is definitely not an alibi (the defeat to Fiorentina). We started with the wrong attitude and if you do that you will have this bad situation,” Pirlo told Sky Sport Italia.

Cesare Prandelli’s Fiorentina gave Juventus the first defeat this season in Serie A. In addition, Juventus are also too dependent on the Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.

This dependence can be seen from the statistics on Squawka. Ronaldo was directly involved in nine goals from 13 kicks: six kicks, three times creating chances. Ronaldo also completed eight take-ons, aka dribbling the ball past the opponent.

Depending on one player often becomes the fruit of the simalakama. For a team of Juventus calibre with good squad depth and quality, giving the responsibility to Ronaldo to be the differentiator is not ideal, especially since they have Paulo Dybala, Alvaro Morata, Dejan Kulusevski, and Federico Chiesa.
