Serie A season 2020-2021 will be a great challenge for Pirlo

With wet feet to power at Juventus and not having much experience, Andrea Pirlo is expected to face many difficulties in Serie A in the 2020-21 season.

In the 2020-2021 season, Juventus has made a big change on the coaching bench. Instead of continuing to trust coach Maurizio Sarri, the Turin giant decided to put his faith in Andrea Pirlo. This is considered a bold and risky decision because Pirlo has never had any experience in coaching.

Even a few days before the opening round of Serie A 2020-2021, Andrea Pirlo received a training license. That is a great challenge because between the idea and reality are two completely different things. A good player does not necessarily turn into a talented coach.

Talking about his ideas, Pirlo confirmed that he would choose to play attacking in the style of imposing and controlling the ball. The role of the Juventus midfield becomes very important. However, last season, this was the weakness of the champions of Serie A.

But that was too little for Juventus to create a breakthrough in gameplay. The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic made Lao She unable to spend heavily to reinforce her forces. In the remainder of the summer market this year, the Serie A champions may only welcome one more striker to replace Higuain, who recently moved to the US to wear Inter Miami.

Juventus has had 9 consecutive seasons of dominating the Serie A championship race. Andrea Pirlo’s minimum mission is to win the 10th Scudetto title. It is also the pressure placed on the shoulders of the former Italian midfielder.

Inter Milan is the biggest challenger to Juventus in the Scudetto race

In fact, in recent seasons, Juventus has not won the Scudetto as easily as before. They faced strong resistance from many competitors. Without saying that, in Serie A last season, Juventus was crowned, but only 1 point more than Inter Milan. This is the biggest challenge for Pirlo teachers and students this season.

In preparation for the toppling of the Juventus throne, Inter Milan had a significant addition of force with Achraf Hakimi (Real Madrid), Aleksandar Kolarov (Roma). Also, the Nerazzurri also bought off Alexis Sanchez. Most importantly, Coach Conte has kept top stars like Lukaku or Lautaro Martinez.

Besides Sanchez, another former Man Utd player, Ashley Young, also played an important role in opening the knot. The 34-year-old volley hit the ground after Sanchez’s cross on the fifth minute, before crossing the ball to D’Ambrosio to make it 3-0 at the end of the first half.

Before the last opponent, coach Antonio Conte put Romelu Lukaku and Christian Eriksen on the bench. But at home, Inter is still too strong compared to Brescia. They held the ball 70% and finished eight times in just the first 45 minutes.

After Young opened the scoring, two other former Premier League players contributed to the double goal difference in the 20th minute. Victor Moses was fouled in the penalty area, before Alexis Sanchez scored from the spot 11 meters. Both of Chile’s goals for Inter this season have come from the times he paired up with Lautaro Martinez in attack.

No more Mario Balotelli, Brescia almost paralyzed in the attack stage. The weak resistance of the bottom team made Inter kick like walking still have three more goals in the second half. Roberto Gagliardini headed the fourth goal for the hosts, following Sanchez’s penalty in the 52nd minute.

Inter finished 20 times in the match, including 12 times in goal. After Lukaku and Eriksen entered the pitch, the number of homeowners’ chances created was increasing.

Inter concretized the pressure by the final two matches Eriksen first scored in Serie A in the 83rd minute, from a penalty kick after Lukaku’s tight shot. The Danish midfielder then assisted Antonio Candreva to set a 6-0 win in the 88th minute.

Inter maintained four points clear of Lazio and eight points clear of Juventus. For Brescia, the chances of staying in Serie A become more fragile, as they are still eight points behind the safety group.
