Pirlo set to rest Ronaldo & many others for cup clash, but before kick off Pirlo tries to warn his teammates about potential danger which can come from Spal in Coppa.
“They are a very good side who like to play football. SPAL tend to use three defenders, but at times three strikers or two support players for the centre-forward. They know how to play, and we must be at our best to avoid embarrassment.”
Spal earned their place in the round with a (2-0) away win over Serie A side Sassuolo, actually is competing in Serie B this season after getting relegated last season, and they are doing a solid job (5th place with 33 points).
It is predicted that Juventus will not easily win this match. Even though SPAL is a Serie B team, the team's mentality is quite good in the Coppa Italia. Spal generate tons of goal attempts, mostly generate double-digit even against Sassuolo, often play only with 3 in a back and probably will take a risk and try to hurt Old Lady.
Despite an early 2-0 lead, the relegation candidate from Genoa was allowed back into the game. As a result, the redeeming 3-2 winner was only achieved in extra time.
SPAL played in Serie A until last year and promoted the development of talents such as striker Andrea Petagna, who has since moved to Napoli.
All in all don't see anything interesting from match shot or other markets, neither cards should be written all over in this game, late one is quite common thing for both teams.
