Cosmi anticipates tough Juve

Serse Cosmi still believes Lecce have what it takes to avoid relegation from Serie A, even if he admits that Wednesday’s trip to Juventus will be difficult.

The Salentini arrive in Turin hoping for a result against a Bianconeri side that have won their last League games and who remain undefeated for the season.

Sat in 18th place and arriving off the back of two defeats suffered, Lecce are in for a test to take anything from the game, admits Cosmi.

“We know we’ll face a team that has conceded just one goal in the last eight games,” he told his Press conference on Tuesday.

“Juventus are having a superb championship, for the results they’re achieving and the quality of their play.

“I don’t know how much chance we have of getting a result in Turin, but with the right attitude we could give them a game.

“We’ll require players who don’t surrender and are able to find the strength to give even more than they have done up until now.

“It’s clear we squandered a great opportunity against Parma, but I still believe we can stay up.”
