Juve: improvisation and d

Rabiot and Paredes in the crosshairs of the Italian press.

Unheard of in Old Lady history. On Tuesday, Juventus Turin conceded another punch in the grounds of Maccabi Hafa (0-2) and suffered a third defeat in the first four days of the Champions League for the first time in 124 years.

Dunces of Group H 5 points behind the duo of Paris Saint-Germain and Benfica, the Bianconeri would need a real miracle to qualify two days after the end.
