Donadoni: 'Don't just limit Juventus'

Roberto Donadoni is without Rodrigo Palacio, but wants Bologna to cause Juventus problems and “not just stop them from playing.”

It kicks off on Sunday at 14.00 GMT, click here for a match preview.

“Only Palacio is unavailable, but the others have all recovered,” explained the Coach in his Press conference.

“We are facing a great side with great players, but it’s good to measure ourselves up against the top teams. We want to prove ourselves and limit Juve’s effectiveness as much as possible.

“At the same time, I want my lads to believe in themselves and play open football, without just thinking about stopping Juve from playing.”

Federico Di Francesco is still a long-term absentee, but meanwhile 19-year-old forward Orji Okwonkwo has contributed three Serie A goals off the bench.

“He is growing consistently and sooner or later he will be in the starting XI, so must make the most of that opportunity,” added Donadoni.

“Ladislav Krejci is working well in training, but if one player starts, that doesn’t mean the other has suddenly become poor. I have to make choices and players can always improve.

“Adam Nagy is trying to improve in both his movements and situations that he’s not accustomed to. Great players, or even those who aim to be great, can always find a solution to problems.”
