Porto vs. Juventus reaction: Why it’s all unraveling for Andrea Pirlo’s squad | Champions League

Porto scored their goals during the first minute of each half and defeated Juventus 2-1 in a performance that the ESPN FC panel deemed horrible by Andrea Pirlo’s squad. Shaka Hislop, Don Hutchison, and Craig Burley break it all down, including Ronaldo’s penalty shout in the final moments of the match.

  • Truth is, they are so irregular that they might just win 1-0 at home and go through. As they turned the Inter game in their favour, and when they lost to Barça by 2 and then won by 3, it’s possible. Now Barcelona is pretty much over for them, can’t see them scoring 5 in Paris, not when PSG is in this form.

  • Their approach was awful but at least Pirlo got his subs right. They did have an impact. Juve could've drawn in end. They were all over shop a bit, players bumping into each other and big gaps elsewhere! But they're better than what they showed. Their defence is slow but at home, where they only need 1 goal, if and when they get it, they can then drop deeper, where they've looked far more secure and be able to break at will. I still think Juve's the better team over 2 legs. It's a good job they had Chiesa though. Until Morata come on, he looked to be the only Juve player who could run and affect the game. He's really come good.

  • This is exactly the same thing they said when Juventus lost to Atletico Madrid in Madrid. Juve was abysmal yesterday, no doubt about that, but they have had very good games this season and are more enjoyable than under Sarri. I'm sure they are going to be singing a different tune if Juve wins the 2nd leg. These were the same pundits who were saying PSG, based on recent form, stood NO CHANCE against a resurgent Barca. We know how that aged.

  • These guys don’t understand that coaches need time to mold a team. They said the same thing about Sarri at Chelsea and he ended up finishing third in the PL (behind Man City and Liverpool) and winning the Europa League in his first season in a new league. Klopp didn’t set the world on fire in his first year at Liverpool, but he was given time. Look how that turned out. It takes time to change a team’s mentality - from wining at all costs, to playing a more attack minded, free-flowing game with less importance put on winning/the result. Juve played poorly and deserved to lose. They were missing Bonucci (their best central defender), Arthur (their best midfielder), and Cuadrado (their best winger/wing back). Their biggest problem isn’t Pirlo’s lack of experience. It’s that they are in the process of changing the way they approach the game (as said earlier) and that will always be tougher to do without your key players. Juve need one or two more dynamic, playmaking midfielders to make the jump into being in the top 5 best teams in Europe. They have too many guys in the middle of the lark who just hustle without really doing anything of consequence.

  • As a Juve fan I have to say a few things. Juve's style at the back passing it from defenders and the goalie, is very dangerous and this game it gave Porto a very easy goal. They need to remove that style, have the goalie just kick it out half the field. Juve got an excellent away goal, all skill, no luck. I have full confidence that they will win their next game and advance. Lately they have been winning games and they just need to win again after these last two hard losses to keep it going. I still consider Juve a very dangerous team to the rest of Europe.

  • Two games ago, i.e. before Napoli and Porto, Juventus were on the rise. They were racing back up the table after the Coppa Italia win. Most commentators/pundits, including those on ESPN said that it is likely that Juventus will win the league and are in a good position in the Champions League. Now they are saying the exact opposite. The truth is somewhere in the middle, but complacency with 2nd tier teams in Europe is an ongoing problem and causing premature exits of the Champions Leage on an annual basis.

  • In my opinion, The coach is the problem with what he puts the player's mind, focusing on playing defensive mildfielding due lack of coaching experience, and relying on counter attacks for goals, which doesn't help in every game, i don't think he is quite smart at reading the opponent's tactics which is key, based on my observation, we can all see they lack of creativity when in attacking terms, poor ball disctrubution and poor players displacement pace, relying alot on long crosses at their opponent box territories when the players havn't been efficient these days with great ball heading, not even the crosses are good enough, also the center position is always left free inwhich they can threathen from there to get goals, morever they are lacking in the foward because aside C.ronaldo and chiesa who else have smart finishing abilities in the team, implying if none of these two can find the net, nobody else can come from the bench with great hunger to score or provide an excellent assist, i mean what was the january transfer for, so the couldn't find a young motivated striker to add to the foward, Nevertheless they can do better, jus that cr7 need more ball suppliers to attempt for goals , with mc kennie reducing his dribbling ratio, cuz he gets to fail on most attempt and lose the ball, but rada do more ball controlling and provide better passes i think Pirlo needs to consult experience great players in his team like cr7, bonucci, buffon , etc to seek for their opinion atleast, since they currently play the matches and have been observant knowing what's best kind of, rather than making decision on his own and for every mistake making excuses, the players are good, itz the tactics that needs to be improved, and more of team play in crucial times like this.

Because it is true, Sarri was so criticized during the entire season and Pirlo have so many fans still who defend him for respect of what he did as a player. I think he has done SOME good stuff, like reading the matches and do the proper substitutions, and good games (vs Barca, Milan, Inter) but overall I think Agnelli and Nedved just burnt him as a manager for the future. Right no The goal of this year is to try to make it to the quarterfinals, and try to stay in Champions league for the next year. I dont see juve winning not even the Coppa Italia vs Atalanta.
