4 storylines to watch out for: Bologna vs Juventus

After a highly emotional win in the Coppa Italia Final, vs Atalanta in Gigi Buffon's final game at Juventus, the race comes down to one match for Juventus vs Bologna, and hope that Atlanta beats Milan, or Napoli ties or loses vs As Verona.

Here are 4 storylines to watch out for in the final Serie A match of the 2021 season for Juventus.

1) Finish the fight. As has been the case all season with Juventus, finishing in games has become a problem. Except for the Inter Match and the Coppa Italia Final vs Atalanta, dropped points have been the norm all season against teams we shouldn't have a problem winning.

2) Lets win one for Gigi Buffon. In the old captain's last season, no player has shown more heart and passion than Buffon. In the 11 matches, he has played this season, Juventus has won all of those matches. Maybe he should have played more matches. It seems when he plays, Juventus plays with much more passion and grit, and new more organized in the back line. Thanks for the memories Gigi. You will be Juve forever and ever.

3) Adrian Rabio comes up big in the big games. Say what you will about Adrian Rabiots lack of consistency, this season but you can't argue he doesn't show up in the big games as was evident, vs Atalanta, Inter and Ac Milan this season. If he could have been more consistent in matches who know what could have been for him this season.

4) Is this Andrea Pirlo's short-lived coaching career at Juventus. In a season of missteps and many lineup changes, Andrea Pirlo could be fired if Juventus don't qualify for the Champions League on Sunday. He was thrown into the fire, and not given much to work with this season. This can be attributed to bad signings over the last few years, and the management did nothing, to improve the team this past summer.
