Others point to the Drake curse
Did Canadian rapper Drake put a hex on Juventus?
Others are floating around the conspiracy theory that Juventus tumbled out of the Champions League because Drake once wore a shirt of the Bianconeri.
In recent weeks the ‘Drake curse’ has been linked to defeats for Borussia Dortmund, Arsenal, Man City and PSG.
