It’s funny to sit here with three Champions League group stage games still ahead of us and say that Juventus have a chance of making the knockout stages with a win against Sporting on Tuesday night. But that is exactly what happens.
For all the distractions, this European campaign started against Barcelona. With successive victories against Olympiacos and Sporting, Juve moved out of the bottom half of Group D. Victory against Sporting on Tuesday night in Portugal means the gap between them and their Portuguese rivals is six. Points with two group stage matches remain and best goal difference at the start.

But if we talk about “easy” in the Champions League, it’s not Juventus’ plan, Daddy-O.

The good thing about all this is the fact that Juve can secure Champions League football at the beginning of 2018 with a win and that they will undoubtedly come out with their best performance of the season a few days ago. Juventus have done well in the first two months of the season both domestically and in Europe, with the wins not forcing the total product they produced each week.
Punch a ticket to the knockout round, well, that would be a sign that this team is headed in the right direction.
As much as a win helps, I think it’s safe to say that we also want to see Juventus play well as well. There are only so many wins people can take before a team’s form becomes an issue. And while there are things to like about this season, the most recent display put up by Juve is perhaps the best and most impressive performance of them all.
Basically what I’m trying to say is that if Juventus can play everything like they did against Milan, starting with Tuesday night against Sporting, then good times are just around the corner.

That would be great – especially with some of the meh games Juve have had in the first two months of the season.
Also good? You reserve your ticket for the knockout rounds of the Champions League with a few games to replace. That could mean Juve will only be playing at the top of the group when Barcelona come to Turin in a few weeks, not their future in Europe’s first club competition of the season.
The month of October was very good for Gonzalo Higuain. Not only because he started to score regularly again, but his general form was much better than we saw in Juve’s matches in September.
Higuain’s own goal against Milan at the weekend was as close as Higuain could get. His finish was absolute perfection, his decision there from the start. That’s the guy

Now, as is always the case when Higuain hits the ground running, we wait for him to transfer his success in Serie A to the Champions League.
