The common line written by Romanisti weeks ago saying - “it is only a Coppa match” - after their 3-0 loss to the Bianconeri, has become a trend for the Rossoneri now as well, as their side succumbed to a tireless Juventus team, united and never looked like they were going to lose the anticipated Coppa Italia clash in San Siro last night.
Mister Conte, with a very odd starting line-up introduced two new faces that were brought in during the winter mercato, Simone Padoin and Martin Caceres, though the latter is well known to the Bianconeri.
Antonio Conte deployed a 3-5-2 with Barzagli, Bonucci and Chiellini in the center of defense, while Caceres and Estigarribia covered the wings, leaving space for Padoin, Pirlo and the versatile Gaiccherini to take care of the middle. Obviously, so far, only Marco Storari has a guarantee in the starting line-up when on Coppa Italia duties, and rightly so.
An away 2-1 win against AC Milan in San Siro, gives Juventus a high advantage for the return leg at Juventus Stadium on 21st of March, and most importantly the club set a new record of an unbeaten run of 25 official matches in all competitions. Ladies and gentlemen - the Bianconeri are back better than ever.
