Cagliari may be safe, but they have every reason to trip up Juventus. “I played for Torino, that says it all,” smiled Massimo Ficcadenti.
The Bianconeri will mathematically be crowned champions tonight if they win and Milan fail to beat Inter.
“What is our motivation? I played for Torino, that says it all,” grinned the Cagliari Coach.
“Juventus will play with the determination of a side that knows it is top of the table.
“It is undoubtedly pleasing to be safe with two rounds to go, as that was our objective for the season and we achieved it.
“Having said that, our tournament is not over yet. There are still two games left to play and we have to give our all.
“Juventus are very strong and still unbeaten, but we are in good shape and I saw the team training with enthusiasm. We have no pressure on our shoulders and playing with a clear head can be an advantage.”
Once again this Cagliari home game is played at the Stadio Nereo Rocco in Trieste due to a dispute over restructuring work at the Stadio Sant’Elia.
