And Cuadrado raised his tally of assists this season to 15 “assists” to become the undisputed star of the goal-making industry in Italy.
Cuadrado, 32, is one of the important pillars of Juventus’ offensive dynamic.
While Cristiano scoring goals (30 goals this season), the Colombian player makes critical passes for which he deserved the title “King of Assist”.
In his absence from the stadium this year, the “Old Lady” team suffered a lot to be dangerous to the opponent. He lacked the change in rhythm, dribbling and intensity of play by Cuadrado, as he is a pivotal player for his coaches in recent years.
Massimiliano Allegri was putting him in an advanced winger position in the 4-2-3-1 formation or in the wing in 3-5-2, while Mauricio Sarri was placing him in the right-back position, which contributed to significantly improving his defensive skills.
As for Andrea Pirlo, he is pushing him this season around the stadium, as a right-back and left-back and as an advanced winger on both sides of the green rectangle, and thus Cuadrado continues as an indispensable element for Juventus.
His pass to Cristiano Ronaldo, last Sunday, was a wonderful corner kick that “the Don” landed with his head against Cagliari, his seventh this season in the Italian League, in addition to his pass in the Italian Super Cup match that Yoffi won against Napoli in January.
Juventus bid farewell to the most important continental championship at the hands of Porto in the final price, to continue moving away from the continental title.
In the first leg, Cuadrado gave a superb pass, from which Federico Chiesa scored his goal (the match ended 2-1 for Porto) and skipped 30 crosses. The Colombian star signed more than double the decisive passes of Juventus last season, with 7 assists. Two years ago he made 3, and 3 seasons ago he made 9 assists. However, Cuadrado is still looking for his first goal of the season after having scored at least one in the past five seasons. His goal record goes back to the 2013-2014 season, when he scored 11 goals with Fiorentina.
In addition to his great performance on the field, Cuadrado plays the captain role among his teammates in the Italian team, and he did not hesitate to appear last Tuesday to comment on the exclusion from the Champions League and facing the loss. The Colombian player said at the time: “This is football. We must raise our heads. We are professionals. Our team is big and the big teams are going through such things.”
Juventus will try at the moment to compete for the Italian League title until the end, although it is currently ranked third, and 10 points away from leaders Inter.
