Juventus vs SPAL
Today could technically be a Coppa Italia quarter-final but it feels like a very early deal for Juventus. In a race known for its rotations of teams and sometimes some funky matches, tonight we got something in the quarter-finals that hasn’t been seen much lately.
The reigning champions of Serie A will face opponents from Serie B in the quarter-finals.
Juventus and SPAL will play in the semi-finals of the Copa Italia, which kicks off next week, tonight for right-back Inter Milan, who received an absolute penalty in the quarter-final against city rivals Milan 24 hours earlier. Juventus, who finished the first half of the Serie A season in the Super Cup against Napoli and Bologna, are now looking to qualify for the semi-finals of the competition, which they have failed to win in the last two seasons after collecting the trophy four times in a row. year.
And to advance to the semifinals, the opponent is the team that finished fifth in Serie B.
Now you might not think that there is much difference between the top teams in Serie B and a handful of Serie A clubs. Of course, SPAL have recently spent time in Serie A. They were by far the worst club in Italy’s best flight to relegation last season. with enough space and space at the bottom of the standings.
SPAL are coming to Turin to extend this completely unexpected journey in which they have beaten Crotone Serie A teams – hey, do you remember them ?! – and Sassuolo. While Juventus will change the team quite hard knowing there are plenty of units available just like a few weeks ago, SPAL will put the team in its place without my hesitation.
Juventus goal in this game: not falling into the same trap Sassuolo set a few weeks ago.
And if Juventus avoids a distraction that would reduce the good work they did late, then there are a few more games with Inter to add to the schedule.
