- McKennie starts at right wingback
- First start of season for USMNT star
- Weah named to bench
McKennie started the match at the right wing-back position, having come off the bench in the club's first two matches of the Serie A season. He replaced his U.S. men's national team teammate Tim Weah in the XI, with the ex-Lille man seemingly picking up a knock in Juve's recent draw with Bologna. Weah, though, would ultimately come off the bench late on and nearly pick up an asisst for Juve.
With McKennie in the XI, Juve were able to seal a 2-0 win, taking them to seven points from their first three Serie A matches. That puts them third in the table, behind only Inter and AC Milan, who are perfect with three wins from three to start the season as clubs head into the international break.
