October is the month of the Meazza. It began on the 3rd with the draw against Inter and will come to an end tomorrow with the match against Milan. It has been a month during which, not only did JUventus remain unbeaten but showed clear signs of improvement, signs which are expected to be confirmed during the big match against the rossoneri.
Del Neri is first and foremost. The Juventus coach said so during “Filo Diretto”, on Juventus Channel and soon after during the press conference on the eve of the match.
"We undertook a new path and we are conscious of our ability to fight equally against anyone. In Bologna we did not concede anything and had 17 attempts on goal. In the match at the Meazza we want to confirm ourselves. I am hopeful. We must go there convinced of being able to win and that we have important players in the squad who can show they are up to it".
The coach will only know the players he will be able to count on upon departure for Milan. The doubt is linked to the two strong points of the team: Krasic and Amauri.
"Milos did not deserve such a sanction. In the first part of the championship he suffered important fouls and on Sunday he fell but not out of any bad intention. I hope this is taken into consideration. Amauri? We will know before leaving if he will be travelling with us on the coach. In any case, if he is called-up, he will not be in the starting line-up".
"We must show that we are Juve which is not dependent on one player. Changes in formation? I don’t see why. We have assimilated a certain mentality and we will change only if necessary. Martinez and Pepe can solve the problem on the flanks".
After the draw at the Dall’Ara and the victory of Milan in Naples, Juventus must reduce the 5 point margin from the rossoneri. It is an ulterior motive in order to try and obtain a prestigious victory at the Scala del Calcio. Del Neri concluded:
"How to win at the Meazza? With maturity. These matches can be decided by a champion strike. It will be a heartfelt match, a mix of strength, class and application".
