Juventus‘ stacked bench in their 1-0 win over Parma could mount a serious challenge for the Serie A title with the talent on show.
The Italian champions had 12 substitutes on the bench and one of those included club legend Gianluigi Buffon, who re-signed with the club this summer.
And defence wasn’t an issue either for Juventus as they had Danilo and Merih Demiral alongside marquee summer signing Matthijs de Ligt.
Juventus also had strong reinforcements in midfield through Adrien Rabiot, Emre Can and Rodrigo Bentancur, along with Juan Cuadrado and Federico Bernardeschi providing options for the wings.
That’s not to mention Mario Mandzukic and Paulo Dybala, who was linked with Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United this summer, available as striking options.
And fans are blown away by the squad depth that Juventus currently have at their disposal.
Juventus kicked off their title defence with a victory over Parma as club captain Giorgio Chiellini poked the ball in from close range in the first half.
Cristiano Ronaldo looked to have doubled their lead when he found the back of the net, only for VAR to spring into action and rule his head as being in an offside position.
Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri did not attend the match as he receives treatment for pneumonia.
The former Chelsea head coach will not return for his side’s clash with Napoli next week at the Allianz Stadium.
