The woes continue for the Vecchia Signora in Italy as Juventus Turin endured a frustrating 0-0 stalemate against Genoa on match day 29 of the Italian Serie A. This lackluster performance ignited tangible frustration among fans who didn’t hold back in expressing their disappointment by showering Massimiliano Allegri’s players with boos at the final whistle.

Despite the valiant efforts of Samuel Iling-Junior and Moise Kean, both of whom were left ruing the woodwork in the 67th and 90th minutes respectively, Juventus found itself on thin ice as Wojciech Szczęsny’s vital save from Mattia Bani in the first half prevented a potential slip-up.

However, the disappointment deepened when Dusan Vlahovic, one of the team’s key contributors, received a late red card for dissent, adding insult to injury and further exacerbating the sense of disillusionment among the fans.

The much-anticipated return of French international Adrien Rabiot, absent since February 25 due to injury, was hoped to inject vigor into the squad. However, Rabiot’s comeback failed to tip the scales in Juventus’ favor as the team struggled to find a breakthrough.

With this drawn result, Juventus finds itself clinging onto third place in the standings, locked in a tie with AC Milan at 59 points but trailing league leaders Inter Milan by a considerable margin with 75 points. The Champions League qualification now hangs in the balance, with only a slender five-point lead over fourth-placed Bologna and an 11-point cushion over Roma in fifth, who have a game in hand.

Since January 27, Juventus has been navigating turbulent waters, managing just one victory amidst three defeats, which has inevitably intensified the scrutiny on coach Massimiliano Allegri from disgruntled supporters.

Post-match, Allegri attempted to assuage fans’ concerns, acknowledging, “We’re currently going through a phase where our dominance isn’t translating into goals. Nonetheless, I maintain optimism as we exhibited resilience and fought hard for 90 minutes. Despite the lack of victory today, I believe we’ve taken strides in the right direction.”
