It took Juventus a while to actually start playing, but they were able to start the new year on a winning note

It feels weird just sitting here for a few days in January thinking that Juventus will have to win pretty much all games for the foreseeable future but because they didn’t win consistently in the first four months of the 2020/21 season this is where they are now as they near the official mid-schedule

Once we knew the current situation, we got a first impression of how Juve would deal with it

After a break in the first half, Juventus put in gear after the break and scored all the important goals from Federico Chiesa and Cristiano Ronaldo (his second of the day) to push the hitherto tight game forward into a relatively comfortable win The score was 4-1 and it was a much-needed Juventus win, with AC Milan at least for a moment 13 points clear of the championship lead as they prepared to come to the Allianz Stadium for pre-game warm-up practice

Milan’s leadership is back to where it was when the games resumed in Italy – 10 points

And as we know, Milan is next on Juve’s plan, as Andrea Pirlo will make his first trip as a manager to San Siro on Wednesday evening

Given that Pirlo’s former team are playing these days, we know it will be quite a challenge and that Juve will have to lose the choppy nature of their results this season if they want the chance to hit the league deficit reduce table in a few days to single digits

But I’m going to ask you all this question: if the Juventus we saw in the second half against Udinese shows up against Milan, you’ll even feel safe that Pirlo’s squad will get away with it in a game they win have to win?

The first 45 minutes were exactly what they were – something to be forgotten outside of the Ronaldo opener and VAR to save a defensive mistake from Juve, but the second half was what was really needed and so we can now say that Juve are going to Milan to keep their title hopes alive that was the salvation to have so many points back even though it’s only January – the head-to-head games against the two Milan clubs are still on the program

The scoreline could say that Juve blew Udinese but that is not really the case.This was a solid win – mostly given what happened in the second half But given that this situation is as it is and Juventus are on now the worst way needing points, we can’t be exactly picky Juventus did what they had to do in the first place – and that was in order to win. And that, my friends, is perfectly fine with me
