Juventus looked very much like a team that had won the league title just a few days earlier.

By that I mean it was about as low energy and low energy gets no matter how heavily Maurizio Sarri’s starting lineup was and how many changes he had made from the weekend when Juve clinched the title against Sampdoria.

The end result was a predictable dead rubber loss, as Cagliari got their first win over Juventus in over a decade as they handed the newly minted nine-time Italian champions a 2-0 defeat in a game where the Bianconeri looked about as flat as they have post-lockdown.

Not that a whole lot should actually be taken out of this game other than the fact that somebody like Simone Muratore made their first Serie A start or that we got to see a few other kids from Juve’s Under-23 team get some run off the bench because Sarri rested nearly an entire starting lineup’s worth of players.

Other than that, this was forgettable.

Sure, does it suck to see Juve lose to Cagliari? Well, yeah, especially since they gave them a pretty good shellacking when the two teams met in Turin back in January. (Of course, January feels about 10 years ago the way 2020 is going, so if you don’t totally remember it’s understandable.)

Does it suck to see Juventus take shot after shot after shot and have absolutely nothing to show for it? Of course. Even with a heavily rotated squad, you would like to think that a front line that has Cristiano Ronaldo and Gonzalo Higuain could score at least something against a Cagliari defense that has allowed over 50 goals this season.
