Juventus have chosen Marco Borriello and Mirko Vucinic against Napoli’s Three Tenors in a huge showdown tonight, but tactics are revamped.
The Juventus Stadium hosts a classic fixture of Serie A, one that ended 3-3 when these sides met in Naples earlier this season and will be renewed in the Coppa Italia Final on May 20.
Borriello is the surprise pick against his hometown club, leaving Alessandro Matri and Alessandro Del Piero on the bench.
It’s believed Antonio Conte hopes Borriello can take advantage of the problems Napoli have defending in the air.
