Pescara Vs Juventus Live Online Commentary
Pescara do come into this tie having secured back to back draws against AC Milan and Empoli, but considering that Crotone beat Chievo and Inter during that same time-frame, it’s a moot point for Pescara. Unfortunately, they are definitely certain to make a return to Serie B next season and it will be a case of trying to keep the score-line as low as possible as they grudgingly prepare to take on the reigning Serie A champs this Saturday. As regards Pescara team news: defender Cesare Bovo is suspended, while ex Juve striker Alberto Gilardino misses out. Another former Juventus player Simone Pepe is also out.
On the flip side, Juventus come into this game flying high after an marvelous 3–0 performance against Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League quater-final first leg. Although the Bianconeri are ever so close to a semi-finals spot, Allegri knows that if anyone can overturn a result, it’s Barcelona. Juventus, of course, have a much stronger defense than PSG, but it still will give him plenty to consider when preparing for this game. And with Barcelona again getting to play the second leg at Camp Nou – where things generally go in their favor – Juventus could likely opt to rest some key players for this one to keep everyone fit ahead of the next week battle. Apart from suspended Leandro Bonucci, Juve have a fully fit squad ahead of this match.
