Facing Lazio was the worst Juventus’ performance of the season

Juventus managed to establish their position at the top of the Italian Serie A standings this season, thanks to a narrow 2-1 victory over Lazio in the continuation of the annual competition. However, the Bianconneri’s appearance throughout the Stadio Olimpico has received criticism from a number of parties, not only coach Max Allegri but also captain Giorgio Chiellini who considers his side’s appearance in the party to be the worst appearance of the season.

As is known, Juventus travel to the Stadio Olympico Roma to face host Lazio. Although playing as a guest team, since the beginning Juventus have won over Simone Inzaghi’s landing squad. But in fact, several times Lazio got a golden opportunity in the party, although finally Douglas Costa managed to open the scoring for the visitors in the 23rd minute.

Ciro Immobile’s goal gave the hosts an equalizer in the second half, fortunately Cristiano Ronaldo then led the Bianconneri ahead through the penalty spot 8 minutes before the end of the match. With this victory, Juventus managed to establish a position at the top of the standings, this time with an 11-point advantage over nearest rivals, Napoli as the closest rival, following a draw obtained by Carlo Ancelotti’s landing team at the San Siro.

This fact is indeed fun for Juventus, till defender Giorgio Chiellini considers his team’s performance in yesterday’s match very bad, even the worst performance this season.

“It is clear that for the first 55 to 60 minutes the game was Juventus’ worst performance this season. Paradoxically, after Lazio took the lead, we found the mental energy to reverse the position, more than physical strength. We have several players who can make a difference. Wojciech Szczesny made us last for an hour, then we managed to fight and win the match. ”

“Parties like this must make us more mature, because we will face a big clash tomorrow midnight against Atalanta in the Coppa Italia. Juve will actually appear on February 20 tomorrow, but it’s important to get good results before the moment arrives. This duel against Lazio is an example, even though it’s so hard to go through, “Chiellini said, as quoted by Sky Sport italia.
