Juventus Retains Top Position in Serie A

The beginning of November 2019 was a good one for Juventus when they played against Torino of Inter Milan and were able to hold onto their top spot. It was mainly due to the performance of Matthijs de Ligt. It was the first goal that he scored for this club and it helped to keep off rivals in the second position. Inter was able to lead briefly with the help of Romelu Lukaku who took the tally of his league to nine. He made a penalty shot in the 92nd minute that helped to secure three points for the team but Juve was able to retake the first position when De Ligt smashed home a goal in the game when only 20 minutes remained.

De Ligt stated that he was glad to have contributed to his side’s win which came with a score of 1-0. This has definitely given him confidence since he has had a shaky start. Being a Netherlands international, he was, however, able to trump in the game on the 70th minute. He admits that it is hard in the initial games when one joins a club recently. However, he feels that being welcomed by the members helps him to improve his game every time.

This win has definitely helped Juve continue with an unbeaten start to this season. It will help them stay on the course for a straight league title ninth in a row. Inter also gained good points, especially with the efforts of Lukaku who is a Belgian international player. This team is the prime challenger for the Serie A title of Juve. Inter also continues six points ahead of the next team in Serie A, Roma.

Juve players would continue to have high prices in the market. For instance, Rodrigo, a midfielder of Uruguay is open for sale at a price of 45 million Euros.
