Juventus have managed to win a ninth league game in a row after the 2-1 success over Sampdoria.
The victory comes just before the winter break and will be a major boost to the confidence of the players, who made a very poor start to the season. However, their quality was never in doubt and the sudden loss of key players like Andrea Pirlo and Carlos Tevez was seen as the reason for the dip in form. Juventus quickly recovered from the poor form and are now challenging for the title. They are only two points below table leaders Napoli.
Massimiliano Allegri revealed that he is extremely happy with the response shown by his players to win against Sampdoria.
