Juventus are unbeaten in 27 games. They also have more draws than wins and sit four points behind AC Milan in the race for the Scudetto. In a bid to break the all-time Serie A record for draws in a season, Victor Conte has decided to reinforce every negative stereotype about Italian football while boring everyone to death. It's one hell of a way to throw away a Scudetto.
On Saturday, they face a very winnable game against a struggling Fiorentina team who have slipped all the way down to 15th in the table. One look at their roster, then a look at their record is sure to bring about confusion. Don't worry too much about it. The Viola have just descended into a giant vortex of sucktitude that defies all logic.
Conte will play for a draw, and haters gonna hate. Fiorentina are depending on former Juve laughing stock Amauri to score a goal. This is about as bland and comprehensibly awful as a game between two teams this big could ever hope to be.
Now watch them prove me wrong and score four goals apiece.
Game Date/Time: Saturday, March 17, 3:30 p.m. ET
Venue: Stadio Artemio Franchi, Florence, Italy
