Aaaaaand we’re back! The new season is officially underway!
What a way to kick things off, too: A packed Juventus Stadium with an electric atmosphere, one of Italy’s better teams who have a bitter hatred for us rolling into town, Gonzalo Higuain officially opening his J account, Hernanes gifting possession with one of his first touches, Hernanes dribbling past the entire Viola team before scoring a screamer of a goal.
One of the above is a lie, so any guesses as to which?
Juventus started the game having come roaring out of the blocks. Straight from the kickoff, Fiorentina lost the ball to Paulo Dybala near the halfway line, and Kwadwo Asamoah got the chance to run at the defense from the middle, before being felled down and giving Paulo Dybala a free kick opportunity 23 meters from goal that he could only shoot into the wall.
