Player Of The Month February

After a successful journey in a pretty tough January, Juve had to deal with an even more difficult set of games in February as a month consisting of 2 games vs Inter, a home battle vs Roma, an away clash vs Napoli, the first leg of UCL round of 16 vs Porto in Portugal, an easy game vs Crotone and finally, a visit to ever-problematic Bentegodi never meant to be easy.

Andrea Pirlo's boys kicked off well by eliminating the Nerazzurri from Coppa and beating Roma in Serie A, but after that everything went south. In the remaining 4 games, Bianconeri only won once vs Crotone, lost 2 games to Napoli & Porto shared the points with Verona.

In these 7 games, Juventus were not able to score more than 9 goals, a disastrous figure. In the defensive phase, things were a bit better by conceding only 5 goals which aren't perfect but isn't bad either and keeping a clean sheet on 3 of the 7 occasions.

Cristiano Ronaldo with 6 goals was the top scorer, while Chiesa, Alex Sandro, Ramsey, and Rabiot each with one assist were the [best] assist providers of Juve.

In spite of the positive outings of Buffon, Danilo, and Aaron Ramsey; Matthijs de Ligt, Federico Chiesa, and Cristiano Ronaldo were the obvious 3 best players of Juventus in the last month and unlike January there is no competition for the podium.

Matthijs de Ligt

Juve may have kept only 2 clean sheets in de Ligt's 6 stars but the fact is, it was for De Ligt that Juve didn't concede more. He was like a wall in all of the games, preventing the opposition from threatening the Old Lady. The highlight of his month has to be the second leg vs Inter, where the way he took care of Romelu Lukaku, who seems to be the most in-form player of Serie A, was nothing short of a masterpiece as the Belgian international was completely under control. It's funny how in the presence of De Ligt Juve have been hit by their own players harder than the attackers they faced.
