March will be crucial, says Del Piero

Juventus captain Alessandro Del Piero believes the month of March could make or break their season.

“There are some decisive days ahead of us,” the veteran wrote on his personal website. “We have two games coming up in the space of four days.

“They will be two fundamental and important moments of our season – the first against Chievo at home and then the rescheduled game at Bologna which was postponed because of the snow.”

Juve are currently second in Serie A, a point behind leaders Milan but with a game in hand.

They are also 2-1 up in the Coppa Italia semi-final against Milan after the Old Lady won the first leg at San Siro.

“It has been some time since we got to the month of March fighting for two objectives – the Scudetto and the Coppa Italia,” Del Piero added.

“A month is about to start which will say a lot about our future and we have to be ready for it. We are concentrating on just this.”

Del Piero, now 37 and who will leave the club in the summer, has made 16 appearances this season with one goal.
