While Juventus were registering their eighth and ninth consecutive league wins over Hellas Verona and Sampdoria, two Bianconeri loanees were making waves of their own in the past week with a goal and an assist aiding their new clubs' respective promotion pushes.
Beginning in Tuscany, there was cause for celebration for youngster Davide Cais as the striker's 13th-minute strike sealed an all-important victory for Lega Pro side Carrarese against Lucchese, a result which sees the Gialloblu move to within three points of the playoff places.
There was to be a similarly profitable evening for fellow loanee Gabriel Appelt Pires, whose match-winning assist against Llagostera continued Madrid-based Leganes' rise up the table, leapfrogging Gimnastic into sixth.
Pires' latest intervention comes at the end of what has been a positive first half of the season for the Brazilian midfielder, who has contributed one goal, completed 577 passes and regained possession 63 times for his team since arriving on a short-term deal last summer.
