With only 1 league defeat this season, Massimiliano Allegri’s men look to be finding form at the right time with a busy festive period approaching. Sampdoria have had an impressive start to the season too and sit in 6th place.

The Old Lady have had an excellent start to the season and sit only 1 point behind early season pace setters Napoli. Juve have are the top scorers in Serie A with 35 goals from their 12 games played so far although conceding 11 goals in 12 games is very unlike an Allegri side. Ballon D’Or nominee Paulo Dybala has had a phenomenal start to the season – scoring 11 goals and providing 2 assists so far this term.
