Juventus' winless run this season apparently still endures. La Vecchia Signora does not seem to be able to move on after their megastar Cristiano Ronaldo left, despite still having Alvaro Morata, Paulo Dybala, Moise Kean, Federico Chiesa plus Dejan Kulusevski in the squad.
This weekend, Max Allegri's men had to suffer another loss while taking on Napoli on the road as they were beaten 1-2. Alvaro Morata actually gave them the lead at the first half. However, Il Partenopei managed to bounce back after the interval. The skipper Lorenzo Insigne initiated the threat by his curling shot to the far right. The goalie Szczesny was able to deny it but the ball fell onto Matteo Politano who struck the ball into the far side to level the scoring. Then on the 85th minute, Kalidou Koulibaly finally scored the winning goal as Szczesny lost the ball at the goal mouth and the Napoli center back blasted into the empty net. Juventus' negative trend has put some doubts on Max Allegri's real capability in inspiring his team to revive instead of just continuing Conte's winning squad in his first spell.

Meanwhile, Zlatan Ibrahimovic made his return to the pitch this season with a goal as he netted one last weekend in San Siro. The Swedish star doubled their lead while crushing Lazio 2-0. The first goal was scored by Portuguese youngster Rafael Leao before the veteran striker's goal. It was Rossonerri's third victory of the season. In the meantime, the reigning champions Inter Milan stumbled on the road while facing off Sampdoria at Luigi Ferraris. They could only muster a 2-2 draw despite leading twice through Federico di Marco's free kick and Lautaro Martinez's close range strike in the six yard box. The home side equalised twice as Maya Yoshida's strike deflected into the back of the net after the rumble in the box. Then at the second half the left wing back Tomasso Augello slotted it home for salvage one point in hand.
