We're getting dangerously close to having Milan fans start talking about how they've scored more goals this season than Inter.

FWIW, we've scored 85 and they're up to 83. The 22 goals they've scored in Europe and the Coppa have helped bridge the gap...we've scored 15 outside of Serie A this season.

(Obligatory "who cares?" response is noted. I'm not saying I care, I'm saying braindead Rossoneri are gonna try to hang their hats on that if that happens.)

How good is their defence, though.

Roma is a bit stronger, but not that much. Lukaku is a non factor so far.

The upside to Juve in the CL might be stretching them in competitions, the downside is that having them in the CL is very lucrative for them.

The best blend is having them in Europa or Conference. Let them rot in those competitions. "Health of Serie A" or not, I'd be happy to never see them play another Champions League game in my life.
Juve would do nothing in those competitions you know that as well as I do, they just field a secondary team.

It doesn’t have nearly the same effect on them of that reason.

It still doesn’t change a competitive league is in our favour, scudetto is worthless without competition just look towards France. Realistically only Milan and Juve gives that, so I much rather win one Scudetto beating juve then 8 in a row where there is no competition, also generally it is more attractive for sponsors, broadcasters if there is more at play all that helps our finances. No one wants to watch a league where everything is a given before the season even take off, serie a was a snore fest in our 4 years and in Juve nearly a decade run. It first started having any sort of thrill the last 3-4 years otherwise it was one long snore, not that this season has been particularly thrilling, but at least we don’t see the same team winning every season because nothing is more boring than exactly that.

Bro, you're getting dangerously close to annoy yourself for literally nothing.

Mancini scores a header.

I'd vote for 20+ more Scudetti, with Juve banished to Serie D where they belong.

I rather beat them in serie a and win the league with them, scudetto ain’t really half as much worth winning without them…

The rivalry is what makes it entertaining, without that rivalry it’s like watching a bunch of friendlies

Some of us were drawn to serie A in the 90’s because of the competition and rivalry (and players) without that serie a would never have achieved the attractiveness it had back then.

Football is after all entertainment

Serie A is very interesting. I find it the most interesting league to watch. I nearly fell asleep watching Newcastle Utd deal with crosses an hour or so ago.

The competition isn't clean as long as Juve are alive. They should be banished from the world of football... And that should've happened 15 years ago.

I'm sorry, but there is nothing entertaining about ruBe; unless they lose or forever be locked up in the basement.

yeah but where do you put Sommer? Litterally the best GK this season, with Carnesecchi and Di gregorio.
Agreed. 1st prize.
