Sarri had the right tactical set up making it difficult to involve either Lukaku or Lautaro, other mitigating factors include the absence of Sensi who certainly made options more complicated for Conte - else your forwards were largely isolated with few touches

Eriksen & Sanchez both made differences in the match but the latter certainly came on far too late. Really odd to see matches without spectators, changes the whole feel of a match

Well, Infantino said that it's not to esclude that the Euro will be postponed. But till now i don't saw other statements from the UEFA. They need to postpone the euro a whole month after. And many don't care about this virus, only in Italy. In other nations they give a fuck specialy in germany. So we need to see if they will accept this or see as "not enough" to postpone the Euro.

Well numbers of cases are rising fast in both Germany and France, PSG CL match will be closed for fans so it's starting to affect other leagues too.

In case there is not a major turnaround in the virus trend, I don't think many will be even willing to watch the Euros. One thing is preventing fans from coming to stadium, a whole other thing is actually not having fans willing to come over the fear of disease. Considering how things are progressing, it might go down that path, people are already fighting over toiler paper rolls.

Considering how "fun" those games behind closed doors are, yes, it kinda defeats the purpose of holding any tournaments if this covid thing doesn't go away.

And it wont, at least until a proper vaccine shot is developed. Sadly, this will probably take a good year or so. Until then, even if it doesn't spread apocalyptically, people won't feel safe attending mass gatherings, such as sports events.

It felt so lifeless and depressing that it was mostly just sad to watch. It was easy to forget what was really at stake here. And it was hard to still even care. This season will forever be disease ridden anyway.
As far as I'm concerned we lost this season vs. Lazio, so losing this game wasn't as painful, it was actually expected. And it certainly wasn't as painful with these absurd circumstances reminding you of the fact that it's all just a game; meaningless entertainment in a very serious and concerning real life situation.

I think we've done some amazing work this season all in all, the growth cannot be denied. Our Scudetto chances this season were always incidental. This season mostly felt like the ground work for the next, which might just be the one where we can really, realistically, aim for it from the beginning.

If either the Coppa or EL is won this season, it will already have been an incredible succes. Especially compared to our expectations beforehand. I hope this will be juBe's last Scudetto for some time to come though, and it will only be fitting that it'll be won surrounded by a deadly virus.

Best case scenario is SS Nazio winning it though, but they're probably gonna bottle it.

Yeesh the effort level after Juve made it 1-0 was fucking appalling. Conte needs to right this ship. And he needs to integrate Eriksen. I dunno how the stubborn bastard is gonna do it but it needs to happen.

In all likelihood, that was the last Serie A game we're going to watch until August.

:yuck:

What a shit way to end the season. But somehow, it also seems fitting.

I am not even mad. Due to this Corona shit debacle, I am simply indifferent to football. Playing without fans in the stadium is simply not the way it's supposed to be.

Rube have been shaky all season, some very amazingly shit performances, but they have been saved by luck and referees all season.

But in 2 games in a year vs us they turn up. Very similar what we do vs Milan in Madonnina derby. Doesnt matter how good they are, we trash them dominantly, even when behind 2-0 @HT

Can't wait to see their elimination from CL. That will hurt that fanbase the most. It'll be hilarious

Just going to say right now that we haven't scored a goal away to Juventus since January 6, 2015. Five straight games there without scoring a goal.

What makes it worse is that Juve has only scored six goals in those five games. They've hardly dented us, but if we can't score, then obviously we can't win.

What makes it worse is that Juventus scored 2 goals at home against us in the league for the first time since 2015-16.

What makes it terrible is that we were genuinely deprived of scoring in the previous encounters but we were just pathetic in this game.

I've never seen a team just give up the way we did when we conceded just 1 goal. It's a joke. The players or conte or someone needs to explain why we just gave up. Useless fuckers. We need to get d'ambrosio back. Not even banter, our record with him playing is so much better than without

People are seriously discounting that sarri modified tactics right after that goal scored.

Rugani has Corona virus. I bet this means serie a will be cancelled. I can see our players going into mandatory isolation too. Was he on tbe bench?

season will be over then. our players should go into immediate quarantine for 2 weeks, which means not enough time to replay getafe match before the next round of Europa League.
