Game Time Thread: Juventus vs Fiorentina

This weekend’s trip to the Artemio Franchi is very, very different than the last time Juventus made its way to Florence to face Vincenzo Italiano’s purple-clad squad.

That last trip, the final league fixture Juventus played in the 2021-22 season, had absolutely nothing on the line.

Fourth place was wrapped up, pretty much all contract extensions were handed out or those about to see their contracts expire had been notified, and a disappointing season had reached its final note.

Not only does this season’s visit to Florence come at a very different point in the season, but during a time in which this Juventus squad is still very much searching for what exactly it can be.

We’re all of about 360 minutes into the 2022-23 season, and for the second straight weekend Juventus has a very big domestic fixture on the docket.

This time, though, Juve’s playing away from home, with the Franchi set to be the definition of a cauldron-like atmosphere because the Old Lady is in town for the weekend.

t’s time to see whether the Juventus from the season opener against Sassuolo & the 1st half against Roma or the one from the Sampdoria draw or, the win over Spezia.
