TURIN, ITALY – OCTOBER 22: Juventus coach Maurizio Sarri.

As one of the favourites for glory this season, Juventus booking a spot into the last-16 from Group D was no surprise.

Nevertheless, it takes a bit of pressure off Sarri given the Bianconeri’s somewhat lacklustre performances under him. Now he can use the two remaining fixtures as a chance to rotate his squad.

Although top spot isn’t secured yet, with Juventus only three points ahead of Atletico Madrid. Therefore, the upcoming meeting between the two teams in Turin on November 26 could potentially be the decider.
