    Goalkeepers Vincenzo Fiorillo and Nicola Leali feature alongside assist king Luca Marrone in Talent Track’s latest all-action instalment

    With the club’s senior side registering its record 13th and 14th consecutive league victories during the last week, it makes sense that Juventus.com’s latest Talent Track bulletin, a round-up of the stand-out performances and eye-catching form of its loanees, has a distinctively domestic feel to it.

    While recent editions of the series have followed Bianconeri in Belgium, Australia and Hungary, February’s first Talent Track update is focused entirely in Italy on goalkeepers Vincenzo Fiorillo and Nicola Leali, on loan at Pescara and Frosinone respectively, and midfielder Luca Marrone, currently at Hellas Verona.

    Beginning with the first of the aforementioned trio, it was certainly a weekend to remember for 26-year old Fiorillo, whose excellent stop from Massimo Coda’s penalty with the score at 2-1 in favour of the away side made for an impressive afternoon’s work for the keeper. 

    The Genoa-born stopper’s efforts however would not be enough to secure all three points for his side with the Biancoblu, currently well placed in third in Serie B, succumbing to Alfredo Donnarumma’s late equaliser.

    While Fiorillo’s decisive intervention saved a point for his team, the same could not be said for fellow goalkeeping loanee Leali, whose Frosinone side were defeated 2-0 by none other than Juventus on Sunday afternoon. 

    Although Massimiliano Allegri’s men were well worth their victory in the end, it was the excellent reflexes of Leali that kept Frosinone in the game, saving superbly from Alvaro Morata on the stroke of half-time. Thankfully, there was little that the youngster could do about Juan Cuadrado and Paulo Dybala’s second-half strikes.

    Hours earlier in the day’s early kick-off, it was the pinpoint set-piece delivery of Luca Marrone that stole the show in Verona as Hellas fought out an extraordinary 3-3 draw with European contenders Inter.

    Marrone, on loan at fellow strugglers Carpi before the January transfer window, was the undoubted star of the afternoon, producing game-changing assists for all three of the home side’s headed goals. 

    The midfielder’s creative efforts would ultimately be in vain as late strikes from Mauro Icardi and Ivan Perisic denied bottom club Verona their second win of the season.

    As ever, fans will be able to keep track of all of the club's loan stars in the dedicated loan players section of Juventus.com.
