Iachini eyes new Juventus upset

Brescia tend to pick up points against the big clubs and Beppe Iachini hopes they can continue the trend with Juventus.

The Rondinelle have strung together four consecutive draws, which included taking points off top four sides Inter, Napoli and Udinese.

“Juve are always dangerous, even if their current form is poor,” warned Iachini ahead of tomorrow's trip to Turin.

“They have players who can make the difference, including a goalkeeper of world class like Gigi Buffon.

“However, we cannot base our performance on who we are facing that day. Brescia must fight for the victory with every opponent.”

With Andrea Caracciolo suspended, the Coach has no intention of changing his tactical vision.

“We have assimilated a certain style of football and stick with it. Our system is the 3-5-2, but transforms into a 3-4-3 when attacking.

“We use three strikers who push forward consistently. Panagiotis Kone, for example, I consider to be an attacking midfielder who transforms into a striker.”

Perparim Hetemaj and former Juventus star Jonathan Zebina are also banned, while Cristiano Zanetti, Simone Dallamano, Gaetano Berardi, Antonio Filippini and Francesco Bega are injured.

Alessandro Diamanti moves into a more advanced role to partner Eder in the absence of Caracciolo.
