The draw result against Sassuolo last weekend really was a disaster for Juventus, Inter Milan, who previously managed to pick full points took over the top of the Italian Serie A standings. But these results did not necessarily make Juventus feel panic and despair.

“We haven’t even entered the middle of the season. We have faced many strong opponents, Inter are playing well. The season is still long, and although we regret having failed to win points yesterday, we will continue to try to win everything, move forward, aim for purpose, “Pjanic was quoted as saying on the club’s official website.
The same thing was said by Juventus director of sport, Fabio Paratici.
“We are not worried about Inter overtaking, we are still in December and now the top two are taking turns,” he said.
