Some Serie A identities are innate

Just as a leopard can't change its spots, some Serie A clubs simply cannot shake their natural identities, for good or bad, writes Susy Campanale.

It’s remarkable that some clubs have an identity firmly entrenched in their very being, which cannot seem to change, no matter how many coaches, players and owners pass through. Inter are the Pazza (crazy) side that will lurch from a magnificent victory to a ludicrous self-inflicted defeat. Roma will always find a way of creating drama and chaos. Lazio forever think like the country cousins in the shadow of their city-dwelling rivals. Juventus grind out results, because winning is the only thing that matters. Atalanta run like the wind, or the Goddess in their club symbol.

Marchisio: 'Juve, sign Belotti!'

Claudio Marchisio calls Andrea Belotti ‘the striker Juventus are missing’ and backs Paulo Dybala to ‘become an icon here and win the Champions League’.

Belotti will face Juve in the Derby della Mole later, leading the line in Torino’s attack, and Marchisio believes his former club should make an audacious attempt to sign the Granata captain.

“He’s the striker Juve are missing, especially now that Higuain still hasn’t truly rediscovered his form,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport.

Demiral: 'Back soon for Juve'

Merih Demiral has confirmed that he will be back playing for Juventus ‘very soon’, explaining why he feels more ‘powerful’ in Bianconero.

Demiral had just broken into Juve’s starting XI until an ACL injury appeared to end his season and dash his hopes of playing for Turkey at Euro 2020.

However, the 22-year-old has been given a reprieve following the coronavirus lockdown, which has only now been lifted so games can restart.

Capello critical of Sarri choices

Fabio Capello is far from convinced by Maurizio Sarri’s Juventus choices in the Coppa Italia Final against Napoli, including the Cristiano Ronaldo penalty placement.

The game ended 0-0, with Napoli winning the penalty shoot-out 4-2, but CR7 never got to take his kick because he’d been scheduled last.

By that stage, the Partenopei had already converted four, while Paulo Dybala’s was saved and Danilo fired over the bar.

Will Sarri's Juventus stand up?

Juventus were the first team to reach the Olimpico showpiece but, as Livio Caferoglu writes, they have plenty to mull over before the Final with Napoli...

For Juventus, there was an overriding sense of relief when Gianluca Rocchi blew for full-time last Friday. They booked their place in the Coppa Italia Final, courtesy of a goalless draw with Milan, and pulled through without any injuries, even managing to play a bit in the first half. However, their performance levels plummeted after the restart, leaving Maurizio Sarri with more questions than answers going into Wednesday’s Final against former club Napoli.
