Juventus has not had the best start to the season and Chiellini said : ”There is no dip [in form],” he said. ”There are improvements. We were always in their half of the pitch at Bologna without conceding anything on the counterattack.

”We are only missing goals. We’ll see what point we’re at on Saturday [when Juventus face Milan].’
