The numbers behind Dušan Vlahović-Federico Chiesa turnaround at Juventus

After an underwhelming 2022-23 Serie A season, Juventus have used the might of their attackers correctly this season and are on course to fight for the Scudetto, with Dušan Vlahović and Federico Chiesa impressing for the club.

A report from Fabiana Della Valle in La Gazzetta dello Sport throws light on the prolific goalscoring form of Juventus’ attacking duo comprising of Dusan Vlahovic and Federico Chiesa. Both players have scored four goals each, taking the total tally to eight during the six games this season and have played an influential role in skyrocketing the Bianconeri’s hopes. 

Following the slip-ups by Inter and Milan recently, Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri hopes to take the maximum advantage of this opportunity by winning the next few matches and setting up his side nicely to be in pole position for the league title. The Italian manager deserves plaudits for how he transformed his team’s attack which found it hard to score goals just a few months back. 

The Vlahovic-Chiesa duo has scored 66.6 per cent of the Old Lady’s total goals this season and with Arkadiusz Milik joining the fore versus Lecce, the Turin-based fans won’t have to worry about goals for the upcoming months. The total of eight goals of Juventus’ duo is closely followed by Inter’s attacking partnership of Lautaro Martinez and Marcus Thuram as their stat stands at seven. 

The present goalscoring scenario has made the fans reminisce about the days when Cristiano Ronaldo, Gonzalo Higuain and Carlos Tevez featured on the pitch for the Bianconeri. Slowly and surely, Juventus are coming back on track and this comeback will be a huge one!
