Three games, ten goals scored and three wins. The start of the season has been more than convincing for the Bianconeri and Saturday's comprehensive victory over Chievo only further confirmed that there is no pre-season hangover for the boys in black and white.
No one has been more integral to the success of the squad over the last six Scudettos than people like Buffon, Barzagli and Chiellini, but Juve proved they can win without their talismen as Andrea told Mediaset and Sky Sports.
"It was inevitable that sooner or later the team would play without any of us," Barzagli explained. "But the result has not changed. We kept a clean sheet and we won the game. It's been a good start to the championship, where we responded well to the disappointment of losing the Super Cup. Even yesterday's was not a simple match, because it came after the international break, but we came out of the traps determined and convinced. That is just what we needed to do."
