Mario Mandzukic scorers the winner that take Juve six points clear for Saturday’s night game, then on Sunday lunch time game saw Udinese host Napoli and no surprise as previous they sent the Partenopei home with their tail between their legs with a 3-1 defeat.
But the defeat is half of the story, the other half is the sending off of Higuaín what a silly boy, it was a simple red card but the hot headed player made it worse for himself, after receiving his red card he thought it would be a great idea to get into the refs face say what he thought then push him. If justice is served his season is nearly over by rights he’s looking at a five match ban with only 8 left that’s not good news for the club. The player is their virtually the only goal scorer, without him they could lose that second spot as Roma are only four points adrift, as today they beat Lazio 4-1 in the Rome derby which cost the Lazio man his job Signor Poli was sacked after the final whistle.
Juve made hard work against Empoli ran the risk of conceding a goal but held on for another clean sheet, but it cannot be said that the old lady should have closed the game in more than one occasion but both Morata and Zaza could not find the net themselves. But a win is a win all the same now Juve have to get set for to face Milan in Milan, a win there could most probably see another coach lose his job as Mihajlovic Sinisa team have only managed 2 points out of 12. Another team who has forgotten how to win games is Fiorentina in the last five games managed four draws and one defeat, on Sunday night we closed with Inter hosting Torino and the hosts taking all three points with a 2-1 win this defeat by the hosts has now put them virtually out of reach of that champions league place, another team who is really struggling is Palermo who are in real trouble of dropping out as yet another defeat this time against Chievo 3-1 a club who finds talent and sells it off to make money. It would be a shame if they drop out it was Juve’s picking point, but in the end of this season apparently there are two players that could be joining the old lady. Whiles I was in Palermo last week there was talk of Gonzalez Geancarlo and Vazquez Franco could be on their way to Juventus.
