by Rami Soufi on February 20, 2011 · 5 comments

Juven­tus have strug­gled to find any con­sis­tency through­out another frus­trat­ing sea­son which cur­rently sees them sit in sixth place in Serie A with Lazio in fourth on 48 points, a full seven ahead of Juve.

Although Rafa Benitez’s Inter has qual­i­fied for the knock­out stages of the Cham­pi­ons League in the same posi­tion that Mourinho’s did a sea­son ago, things look very dif­fer­ent for the Spaniard.
