Zaza: 'Sassuolo can upset Juve'

Sassuolo striker Simone Zaza is confident they can cause problems for Juventus in Sunday’s rescheduled game.

The fixture was originally set to be played at 19.45 GMT on Saturday, but was put back to 17.30 GMT Sunday after Juve’s Champions League clash with Galatasaray had to be concluded on Wednesday due to snow.

“A match like this is special for anyone and few of us have played at the Juventus Stadium,” said Zaza, who is co-owned by the Bianconeri.

“Without doubt it will be very emotional to step in to this temple of Italian football. This season Sassuolo have already faced all the big clubs and our Coach will give us the right instructions to challenge Juventus.

“In this game we need courage and moving it to Sunday means we’ll have one more day to prepare. At this moment the Bianconeri are the strongest side, but they are not invincible and Sassuolo have nothing to lose.

“Therefore my teammates and I will give our all to achieve something extraordinary.”

There is a heavy blow for Sassuolo, as star forward Domenico Berardi is suspended.

“He is capable of making the difference at any moment, even though he is only 19 years old, but we’ll try to ensure he is not too badly missed,” added Zaza.
