Adrien Rabiot concedes that Juventus are out of the Serie A title race

Adrien Rabiot conceded that securing the top spot in Serie A seems unattainable now, especially with Inter holding a nine-point lead and a game in hand over Juventus.

Following a draw with Verona, extending their winless streak to four matches in Serie A, Juventus faces the harsh reality of competing for a second-place finish rather than the Scudetto.

Juventus’ ace midfielder Adrien Rabiot said: “We must be realistic right now, Inter are on their path and we must fight to keep hold of second place. We got here with 53 points being what we were, we just need to rediscover that again and fight it out for second. We were too sluggish tonight.”

Juventus is enduring its worst form of the season, having gone winless in their last four matches, with only two ending in draws. Their defeat to Inter in early February marked the beginning of this dismal run, prompting the need for adjustments if they wish to salvage their season.

AC Milan, currently sitting just two points behind Juventus in third place, poses a significant threat, especially considering they have a game in hand. A victory against Monza on Sunday would propel Milan past Juventus into second place.

The upcoming match against Frosinone next Sunday adds pressure on coach Massimiliano Allegri, who undoubtedly feels the heat as the highest-paid coach in Italy.

Allegri faces mounting expectations, which the team has failed to meet in recent weeks. Players like USMNT stars Weston McKennie and Tim Weah aim to reignite Juventus’s winning streak and relieve some of the pressure on Allegri.
