AC Milan legend Alessandro Costacurta is now working as a pundit for Sky Sport and ahead of Juventus’ crucial Champions League clash against Barcelona he has explained why the Old Lady is struggling more than expected this season.
The Serie A giants have already lost two Serie A games and have always allowed at least two goals in away games this season.
“I think Juventus’ big problem is that they only have five players who are actually good in defending”, the former Italy international told Sky.
“All the others are very good when it comes to attacking and it’s hard for Allegri to find the right balance. The team works well when everybody is fit and when everybody is focused. That’s when Juve find a real balance, when they don’t do it Allegri has troubles.”
Juventus are set to face Barcelona tonight with their star Giorgio Chiellini who will skip the Allianz Stadium clash due to a muscle injury he picked up this morning.
