      TIM Cup and winter break headline the first month of 2018 for the Bianconeri

      With the second seven-match month of the season behind them, the Bianconeri head into January in their best form of the season unbeaten in nine with a four-match winning streak and just one goal allowed since mid-November

      The heavy lifting in December sees the Bianconeri still well-alive in all three competitions having advanced to the Champions League round of 16 and Coppa Italia quarterfinals while sitting just a point behind Napoli at the top of Serie A, opening a little bit of daylight over third-place Inter with a six-point gap. 

      January won't be quite as intense for the Bianconeri with the two-week winter break on tap, but first they'll need to play two very important matches in two competitions. 

      Here's what's on tap in January for Massimiliano Allegri's men:


      The new year starts off with a bang for the Bianconeri as they'll face cross-town rivals Torino in one of the biggest Derby Della Mole's in years. 

      For the second time in three years, the Turin derby will be contested in the Coppa Italia, but this is just the second times the teams have met in the cup in the last 25 years and the lates round meeting since 1993. 

      Torino enters this match having won three previous rounds of the competition including a 2-1 stunner at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome while Juve defeated Genoa 2-0 in the round of 16. 


      The second half of the Serie A season kicks off for Juve on Saturday, 6 January in Sardinia away to Cagliari.

      Goals from Mario Mandzukic, Paulo Dybala and Gonzalo Higuain earned Juve three points on the opening day of the season against Cagliari and they'll be looking for three more important points against a Rossoblu side currently 15th in the table. 


      Monday night football hits Allianz Stadium in January as the Bianconeri host Genoa in the final round of matchday 21. 

      The match will be nearly a month to the day that Juve defeated Genoa 2-0 in the Coppa Italia at Allianz Stadium and they'll be looking for a similar result in their return from winter break. 


      Currently set for 28 January, this match has yet to be given a determined kick-off date or time so stay tuned on that one but in the last weekend of January, the Bianconeri will travel to Verona for the second time this year, this time to face Chievo.

      Juve cruised to a 3-0 win in the home leg on matchday three of this meeting. 

      NOTE: The first leg of the TIM Cup semifinals could be on January 31st if Juve is able to defeat Torino in the quarterfinals.
