Juventus-Empoli, Max Allegri changes Dusan Vlahovic’s partner
In the last 10 challenges, nine HCL victories
The 11th day of Serie A opens with the challenge, at the Allianz Stadium, between Juventus and Empoli. The Bianconeri, refreshed by their success in the Derby della Mole, are looking for three more points to further lift themselves up in the standings and better prepare for Tuesday night’s decisive challenge at Benfica’s Champions League ground.
Allegri seems determined to make a change in attack: it will be Milik to flank Vlahovic, the hero of the derby. In defense, Bonucci will be back as a starter. Still no call-up for Pogba and Chiesa. In the last ten direct challenges, Juventus has won nine times. The other match was won by Empoli, right at Allianz Stadium: August 28, 2021, Juventus-Empoli 0-1. The first match, in Serie A, dates back to the 1986/87 season: 1-0 Juventus with Sergio Brio’s goal.
