Beppe Iachini is thoroughly impressed with Juventus, but insists giant-killers Siena “will be attacking and certainly won’t go looking for a 0-0.”
The Tuscans have never won in Turin, but over the last few rounds earned convincing victories over Inter and Lazio.
“It will require a performance of real character at the Juventus Stadium, coupled with tactical organisation,” said Coach Iachini in his Press conference.
“We are facing a very strong opponent, but it would be a terrible mistake to go out there looking for a 0-0. We will play our game, just as we always do, trying to be attacking and pro-active.
“Simone Vergassola has trained with the team all week and it will be very important to have him back in the side.
“For over 18 months Juventus are proving they’re a real team with a solid and well-drilled system. We must put in the perfect performance.”
Recent results mean Siena are third from bottom despite a six-point penalty in the betting scandal. Much of that has been down to January signing Innocent Emeghara, click here for Dylan Fahy’s blog on the striker.
“We are doing well and the fans will have to stay close to us right to the end as we seek safety.”
Siena squad for Juventus: Farelli, Marini, Pegolo; Belmonte, Felipe, Grillo, Matheu, Paci, Rubin, Teixeira, Terlizzi, Uvini; Agra, Bolzoni, Calello, Della Rocca, Mannini, Sestu, Valiani, Verre; Bogdani, Emeghara, Paolucci, Pozzi, Reginaldo, Rosina
