The Bianconeri suffered another painful defeat in their Serie A clash against Milan on Sunday.

Juventus

were defeated 3-0 in their crucial match against Stefano Pioli’s side on Sunday. The Bianconeri’s first home defeat against

Milan

since 2011 saw them slip to fifth place on the Serie A table. Juventus are now in danger of missing out on their chance to secure a Champions League spot for the next season.

opened the scoring for Milan just before half-time. The Rossoneri doubled their lead by

’s goal five minutes later. Former Juventus coach

Fabio Capello

slammed the Bianconeri for their uninspiring performance.

"What we saw from Juventus was embarrassing,"

he told

Sky Sport Italia. "In the first half they did not exist. It was the same against Udinese last week.

"They were without ideas and Milan did their part, without having to do difficult things. Juventus tried to press but without aggression and never managed to recover the ball.

"In the first half there was a huge amount of wrong passes. Watching the game, I had to ask, 'are these Super League teams?'.

"The second half was a bit better. Milan's goals unlocked the game and Juve woke up after the missed penalty, but not enough. Gianluigi Donnarumma made only one save."

There were rumors about Pirlo’s potential dismissal after the game. However, the club’s board members have reportedly decided to let the former player stay at the club until the end of the season.

Asked about Juventus’ tactical problems, Capello added:

"Juventus' problems are in midfield. Ronaldo did not have the service and [Giorgio] Chiellini is the only player who played some throughballs," he said.

"It should not possible that Chiellini is the key man in midfield. There has been confusion from the beginning – they started with a three-man defence then changed.

"The players feel the coach does not have clear ideas. They smell the situation and find it difficult to follow him. Juventus need a clear direction to improve."

Juventus will play against

Sassuolo

in their next Serie A match on Wednesday.
