The Bianconeri might be used to playing a crucial match with the world watching, but when faced with pools of half a meter of water to cross as well as steep dirt climbs and descents, it would be understandable to think their legs may have trembled slightly.
The fact that they didn’t is all thanks to the knowledge that when sat behind the wheel of a Jeep Cherokee, Wrangler or Gran Cherokee, even the toughest challenges can be easily handled.
And it’s for that reason that the Juventus squad were not lacking in courage when they took on the Balocco Proving Ground - the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles test track - as guests of the club’s official sponsor in an afternoon of off-roading.
The players have been driving Grand Cherokees for two years now, but it was perhaps the first time they had been able to test out the Jeep vehicles’ capabilities off-road, and it was an experience they all greatly enjoyed.
Once again, Juventus and Jeep have demonstrated that there are no obstacles which together they can’t overcome.
