Juventus hosts Roma at the Allianz Stadium in the big derby of the 1/4-finals of Coppa Italia
Juventus hosts Roma at the Allianz Stadium in the big derby of the 1/4-finals of Coppa Italia. We will try to give you some news for this fixture in Turin in our soccer matches tomorrow.
Juventus reached this phase of the competition after being merciless to Udinese in the previous round. Maurizio Sarri’s team hosted Udinese at home and scored four times for a clear 4-0 win. Gonzalo Higuain opened the score for Juve, while Paulo Dybala scored twice. Douglas Costa also added a goal for the Old Lady.
Last season Juventus didn’t reach the Coppa Italia final, being eliminated by Atalanta. Maybe this time the Bianconeri will give a serious effort to reach the final, because they are a club which fights for every trophy.
Few days ago Juventus stayed on top in the Serie A after beating Parma with 2-1 in Turin. It was Cristiano Ronaldo’s day, because the Portuguese superstar scored both goals for the champions. Let’s see if Sarri is going to put him in the team against Roma or maybe he’s going to get some break.
Roma reached the Coppa Italia 1/4-finals after a win away from home. The Wolves faced Parma at the Ennio Tardini and progressed in the competition after a clear 2-0 win. Both goals were scored by Lorenzo Pellegrini after the break. One of them – from a penalty kick.
Days after beating Parma in the Coppa Italia, Roma won again in the Serie A after two consecutive losses. Paulo Fonseca managed to prepare his players for the game against Genoa, which ended with a 3-1 for the visitors from the capital. Genoa’s Davide Biraschi scored himself an own goal, while Cengiz Under and Edin Dzeko also scored for Roma.
We won’t lie to you – Juventus are major favourites against Roma, especially at the Allianz Stadium. But Coppa Italia is a cup competition, so all kinds of surprises can happen here. It’s going to be interesting.
