Di Francesco: 'Fight to the death!'

Eusebio Di Francesco guarantees Sassuolo will “fight to the death” for points against Juventus tomorrow.

It kicks off on Monday at 19.45 UK time (18.45 GMT), click here for a match preview.

While the Bianconeri are eager to secure the Scudetto as soon as possible, the Neroverdi need a result to escape the relegation zone.

“We want to remain in Serie A,” assured Coach Di Francesco in his Press conference.

“Juve have three times as many points as we do, but we are in a positive period of form. We’ll try to impose our style of play and put in a great performance from start to finish.”

Sassuolo gave their chances of survival a huge boost with a victory over Chievo last week and can be buoyed by other results this weekend.

Bologna, Chievo, Livorno and Catania all lost, so even a draw would take them out of the bottom three.

“The lads want to go out there and give all they’ve got. Playing on Monday night also gives us an extra day of training to prepare.

“We are Sassuolo, there are four games to play and it would be illogical not to give it our all. I think there ought to be more respect for the smaller clubs who fight to the death, just as we will tomorrow against Juventus.

“This is a very important match for us and there is a lot at stake.”

Di Francesco must reshuffle his pack, as Domenico Berardi, Simone Missiroli and Davide Biondini are all suspended.
