The success against Roma has reopened the Scudetto race in women’s Serie A, but it is the next match against Zurich that hides a historic and unexpected milestone.

You see Juventus Women can go up to ninth place in the Uefa rankings, moving closer to what was a year and a half ago considered the most ambitious target to be accomplished within 3-5 years, which was to enter the top eight in Europe.

But they have done it in significantly less time!

Juve has the second-best defence in the league and the best attack.

The squad Montemurro has at his disposal isn’t perfect, and moves will be made in the transfer market in January, especially to increase the number of substitute options.

However, players like Lenzini and Grosso are now so crucial to the project that they must be viewed as essential, just as Gama or Cernoia were until recently, and priceless additions like Caruso and Boattin only boost their chances of winning silverware.

They are sitting 2nd on the league table, just 3 points behind Roma now.

And their latest 4-2 victory over Roma has cut down the gap with the leaders, and with the team that they have, their outright odds of winning the Serie A will certainly become better.

On comparison, their Champions League opponents, Zurich, are also second on the table in their respective league.

In their case they are 6 points behind the leaders Servette, meaning they have some catching up to do!

But that might still be a positive, given the fact that they are yet to win a Champions League game this season!

In their 4 group games so far, they have faced 4 defeats putting them dead last on the table.

And now they must face a Juventus side on their home ground, who would be high on confidence after defeating Roma, and also someone with extra motivation levels as their hunt for qualification is still on.

Juventus are third in their Champions League group on 5 points, while Zurich are still on 0 points.

There is no doubt that Juventus will be be mighty confident heading into this one!
