      A look at the busy month ahead for the Bianconeri who play six fixtures between Serie A, the Champions League and TIM Cup

      After coming through the month of January with 5 wins and 5 cleansheets.

      La Vecchia Signora will see the coming month of February as a sterner test for Massimiliano Allegri's men who have commitments in three competitions to fulfill. Which includes the visit of Tottenham in the Champions League, a Turin derby and the second leg of their TIM Cup semi-final.

      The February fixtures are arguably all decisive for their Bianconeri's season as they look to overtake Napoli at the top of the Serie A table. Whilst at the same time, qualify for the quarter-finals of the Champions League and reach the TIM Cup final in Rome.

      Here's a look ahead at what Juve have coming up this month:

      4 FEBRUARY | SERIE A | JUVENTUS VS SASSUOLO

      February begins with the visit of Sassuolo to the Allianz Stadium, with the Neroverdi aiming to consoldiate their position in Serie A.

      The team from Emilia has seen a turnover in fortunes with the arrival of Giuseppe Iachini in November, with the former Palermo coach winning four of his nine games at the helm and drawing two.

      La Vecchia Signora were triumphant when they played away to Sassuolo on Matchday four, winning 3-1 at the Mapei Stadium, as Paulo Dybala scored his second road hat-trick of the campaign. Sassuolo have never won at the Allianz Stadium in four attempts, managing just a single goal.

      9 FEBRUARY | SERIE A | FIORENTINA VS JUVENTUS

      Juve play their first game of February when they travel to Florence to take on Fiorentina at the Stadio Artemio Franchi.

      La Viola have had an up-and-down season to date and this will be a game that the home side will have strong ambitions of winning. The last three matches at the Artemio Franchi have gone each way, as the Bianconeri fell 2-1 last season, but were victorious by the same scoreline the season before, and the previous encounter to that finished 0-0. 

      The Bianconeri were victorious when the two sides met at the Allianz Stadium, as Juve won 1-0 thanks to a second half goal from Mario Mandzukic.

      13 FEBRUARY | CHAMPIONS LEAGUE | JUVENTUS VS TOTTENHAM

      A fixture that many Juventini would have had circled for some time, as Juventus take on Tottenham in the first leg of their Champions League Last 16 tie.

      The Bianconeri drew Spurs after coming through their group containing Barcelona, Sporting CP and Olympiacos in second place. Tottenham meanwhile topped their group consisting of Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund and APOEL. 

      The two sides have never faced each other in a competitive game before, although did lock horns in pre-season where Tottenham were the victors by two goals to nil at Wembley, where the return leg is scheduled for 7 March.

      18 FEBRUARY | SERIE A | TORINO VS JUVENTUS

      The third Derby Della Mole of the season will be a Sunday matinee as the Bianconeri travel across town to the Stadio Olimpico. Juventus hold the bragging rights so far this year having won the first two derbys of the season including a 4-0 win in Serie A and a 2-0 win in the TIM Cup quarterfinals. 

      25 FEBRUARY | SERIE A | JUVENTUS VS ATALANTA

      Having taken a pair of trips to Bergamo this season, the Bianconeri will now welcome Atalanta to Allianz Stadium twice in four days with the Sunday afternoon Serie A matchup as the first match of the two. 

      Last season, Juventus topped Atalanta 3-1 in Serie A at Allianz Stadium and also was victorious 3-2 in TIM Cup. 

      28 FEBRUARY | TIM CUP | JUVENTUS VS ATALANTA

      The final hurdle to a fourth-straight TIM Cup final in Rome, Juve hosts Atalanta in the semi-final second leg on Wednesday night. 

      The Bianconeri escaped Bergamo with a 1-0 win in the first leg meaning Massimiliano Allegri's side will have the advantage heading into the second 90 minutes with a win or draw securing passage to the Coppa Italia final against either Lazio or AC Milan.
