Juventus winless in first four after 60 years

Juventus have failed to win any of their first four Serie A games for only the fourth time, the most recent example being 1961-62.

Serie A | Juventus 1-1 Milan: Rebic responds to Morata

The Bianconeri sit in 18th place in the table after just two points from the opening four rounds, drawing with Udinese and Milan, losing to Empoli and Napoli.

The last time the Old Lady reached the end of Serie A Week 4 without a single victory was back in 1961-62, a gap of 60 years.

It is the fourth occasion in which Juventus have failed to win the opening four rounds, as this club also achieved the unfortunate feat in 1955-56 and 1942-43.

Juventus have also failed to keep a Serie A clean sheet since March 2, conceding in 18 consecutive rounds.

Their only clean sheet in all competition since March was in the Champions League, a midweek 3-0 victory away to Swedish side Malmo.

There seems to be a recurring theme here too, as Juventus had the lead against Udinese only to draw 2-2, went in front at Napoli and lost, then broke the deadlock with Milan and were held 1-1.

    What reason will Allegri for this poor display. Predictable play and too many passes going sideways or backwards. Very frustrating for all supporters and anyone watching this negative football.

    I am no fan of Inter but they scored 6 goals yesterday. That is more goals than then Juve have done in 4 games. I think the last time Juve scored more then 4 goals was in the stone ages

    All hail the Jedi master trainer Allegri, world scholar in stone age football. Having been out the game for 2 years to reflect and maybe see how football is being played across the world he brought back his zombie guide to play parkinson’s football. This team is a like renewable wind power turbine. It only blows for 5 minutes and when there is no wind there is no build up play at all. I think they need to invest in some battery chargers as they are either dead in the first half or totally gone in the second.
