Turin, a new defensive solidity: conceded 14 fewer goals than last year

Juric’s Torino exponentially improved the defensive performance: the comparison with the 2020/2021 season

The Toro, who sheds his hair but not his vice, has raised his famous rod after two years of agony. The constant problems in the final matches that have already characterized last season have only partially undermined the performance of the club, especially as regards defense. In fact, this is no longer the least profitable sector of the grenade club. With Juric, the Taurus has finally managed to find that solidity missing for too long. Both individuals and the entire department benefited from the change of guard on the bench and the numbers amply demonstrate this. The goal difference is in fact passed to the assets (+4 on the thirteenth day), which was quite unthinkable during last season.

Taurus, in 2020-21 more offensive concreteness but how many errors in defense

In 2020-2021 in fact, Giampaolo’s Toro was more profitable on the offensive front, with twenty-one goals made with the same number of games played, against seventeen this year. However, it was not enough to fill the gap created by the opposing superiority, often generated by individual errors: the goal difference was in fact -10, with thirty-one goals conceded. The majority came in comeback, which happened again this year, but the damage was limited by the qualities that Juric was able to bring out from his. The excellent responses received by the defense helped Milinkovic-Savic to acquire greater confidence, thus ensuring fourteen fewer goals conceded than last season.

Taurus, Bremer is the constant among the most attacking grenade defenders

The only fact that coincides instead is that concerning the goals of the defenders. Both this year and last year, three goals were scored by one of the players from the rear in the first thirteen matches. With Giampaolo they thought about it Bremer, Ansaldi e Nkoulou to have their say also from an offensive point of view. The Brazilian has remained the constant invariable among the grenades, scoring two more times in this first part of the new season. Then there was a new entry: Singo, on the net for the first time against Sampdoria. The goals and general improvements have brought valuable points into the pockets of Toro, a +10 compared to last year, and the position in the standings gives hope for a different ending.
