The penultimate month of Juventus’ 2021/22 season is in the books, folks.
Massimiliano Allegri’s side saw their 16-game unbeaten run snapped by Inter Milan in the Derby d’Italia at the start of April, but back-to-back victories to round off the month has thrust the Bianconeri into the Coppa Italia final and, dare I say it, next season’s Champions League.
Juventini were forced to sit through five games of Allegri-ball in April which means that three starts were required to qualify for our Player of the Month award this time around.
Old Juve’s Juventus Player of the Month – April 2022
Matthijs de Ligt claimed his second victory on the spin in March, but the Dutchman’s slipped out of the top three on this occasion and a new winner of this award will officially be crowned.
But who will it be? Let’s find out!
3. Adrien Rabiot (Average rating – 6.2)
It took almost three years for Rabiot to step up on the big occasion. The Frenchman was a force to be reckoned with in the Derby d’Italia defeat as he earned a season-high 8.5 rating.
However, since then, it’s been a return to the norm for the perpetually underwhelming midfielder. Rabiot continues to get through a ton of defensive work but his contribution in possession has been close to nil since the Inter game.
Thus, a string of mediocre ratings closed out April which brought down his average to 6.2 for the month. Still, it was enough to see him earn a podium finish.
