Juventus travel to Firenze to face Fiorentina in the second leg of the Europa cup. Juve must win to progress to the next round, a defeat would leave Juventus empty handed again this season. Yes Juve will win the league but now that’s not enough, la Signora needs trophies, and what a better way as the final is in Torino, also the win will declare the old lady is back in Europe.
Declaration is done in Seria A as this will be the third straight season in winning the Scudetto, after the so called scandal, but now declaration has to be done in the European front Europa cup would be a good start, the spin-off would fill the war chest to be able to go to market and bring in some more stars without going to the bank. This is why tonight is very important that the old Lady shows real character.
Fiorentina have their own agenda, their season has loads more to play out as they are not guaranteed European football next season, the only thing they hold on to the fact that they beat Juve earlier in the season as they came back from being 2-0 down to win 4-2. They are looking at the fact that Juve twice this season went 2-0 up and failed to bring home the game, but if Fiorentina believe that they can repeat the same fate I believe they will make a huge mistake.
The probable line up for Juve are from: Buffon, Caceres, Bonucci, Chiellini, Isla, Vidal, Pirlo, Pogba, Asamoah, Llorente and Tevez.
I have to admit I’m a little surprised to see Isla, but I assume that Conte knows best, it would be nice to see this score line tonight. 2-0 thank you and goodnight Fiorentina.
