Coming into the 2014 – 2015 season of Serie A Italian football, it wasn’t difficult to see why most analysts and fans alike were predicting Juventus as the frontrunners. After all, the club has won the past three seasons of the division in decisive fashion. The team’s 2013 – 2014 run, when they only lost two matches and drew three, was particularly cut and dried. Coming off a legendary season like that, who would have been willing to bet against the wearers of the Juventus strip?
With 12 weeks of play now wrapped, things are looking good once again for the Old Lady. The squad has owned the top slot in the 2014 – 2015 Serie A since week four, and a pair of recent decisive victories has only deepened that lead. You can celebrate the club’s quality run with a new Juventus home shirt 2014 – 2015, available at Soccer Box. We also have stock of the team’s blue away shirt, if you prefer to the zebra-striped motif of the home strip.
A Golden Record
At the moment, Juventus has won 10 matches, drawn one, and lost one. That golden record has earned the club a point total of 31 on the standings table. In addition, the squad has scored 28 goals and only allowed four.
These quality statistics put the Old Lady significantly ahead of the other teams in the 2014 – 2015 Serie A. Roma is in second place, with a record of 9-1-2 and 28 standings points. However, Roma also is dragging behind Juventus in terms of goal difference, with 21 goals scored and seven allowed.
The lead in both wins and goal difference is good news for the fans and players who wear the Juventus strip. Even if the soccer squad loses a match in the coming weeks, they should have enough padding to retain the top spot.
A loss certainly is possible. Unpredictably, the Old Lady’s only defeat this fall came at the hands of Genoa—a team that finished in 14th place in last year’s Serie A standings. The football fixture proved that even the best football teams can have an off day.
Beyond that one defeat, though, Juventus has been fairly close to being unstoppable this year. Arguably the squad’s most notable victory came back on October 5th, when they donned the Juventus home shirt 2014 – 2015 for a match against Roma. The fixture ended 3-2 in favor of the home team and kept Roma out of range for stealing the top slot.
That win may have been the most notable of the 2014 – 2015 season so far, but it wasn’t the biggest. That title belongs to a more recent home fixture between Juventus and Parma. Played on November 9th, the home match against Parma gave fans a reason to be jubilant about wearing the Juventus strip. Or, more accurately, it gave fans seven reasons to be happy about that fact.
Indeed, the Parma match ultimately ended with the score 7-0 in favor of the home team. Parma has been struggling this season: in spite of finishing last year in sixth place on the standings table, the club has fallen to dead last this autumn. The Old Lady took advantage of that fact, finding the back of the soccer net repeatedly for one of the most thrilling matches of the 2014 – 2015 season.
Who was the best soccer player in the Juventus home shirt 2014 – 2015 during that high-scoring match? It’s hard to say, but there were four contenders for that particular title forwards Fernando Llorente, Carlo Tevez, and Alvaro Matata all delivered two goals apiece. Defender Sebastian Lichtsteiner, meanwhile, scored the seventh goal and provided assists for two of the others.
Is Juventus headed toward another Italian football title? The Parma game, along with last weekend’s 3-0 win against Lazio, makes it appear likely.
