All eyes on stuttering Juve ahead of visit of Milan

Juventus have endured a far from ideal start to the Serie A campaign after failing to win any of their opening three games but coach Massimiliano Allegri is not panicking considering the last time this happened — they won the title in 2016.

Juventus threw away the lead to lose at Napoli last weekend, leaving the Turin giants, the winners of a record 36 Serie A titles, languishing in 16th place with just one point.

But even a coach of the Italian’s experience and composure will surely feel the pressure when Juve try to end their rotten run against in-form AC Milan on Sunday.

Allegri’s return, two years after he left the club, was widely expected to restore an air of calm and clinical pragmatism to an inconsistent group that snuck into the top-four on the final day of last season under Andrea Pirlo.

However, the individual errors that plagued Pirlo’s spell in charge have continued.

Juve suffered back-to-back defeats to Empoli and Napoli since surrendering a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 at Udinese on the opening day.

Milan, meanwhile, are flying. Stefano Pioli’s side are one of two sides from last season’s top seven to stick with their coach in the new campaign, along with Atalanta.

Continuity has helped, as the Rossoneri have won all three league games so far, impressively swatting away Lazio with a 2-0 victory at San Siro last time out.
