      Attack is the way forward as shots fly in from all angles during the Bianconeri’s penultimate training session in Chatillon

      Antonio Conte led a predominantly attack-focused session this afternoon in a bid to have his strikers firing on all cylinders come the start of the 2013/14 campaign.

      The session began, as always, with a piggy in the middle warm up, before moving on to an exercise in which the players had to work the ball round a full complement of mannequins lined up in a 4-3-3 formation.

      From the instructions being called out from Conte, it was clear that the focus was very much on scoring from a cross.

      Fabio Quagliarella duly followed the boss’ orders, resourcefully finding the back of the net with his chest, and Fernando Llorente rose above the others to head in a Mauricio Isla delivery, an event that the fans will no doubt be hoping to see repeated many times in the season to come.

      Arturo Vidal, recently named Eurosport’s Serie A player of the year for the last campaign, converted a cross right into the angle of post and bar.

      Next on the schedule was the mini match, which began under Conte’s one-touch rule. Paolo De Ceglie nearly opened the scoring after a powerful drive with the outside of his boot struck the bar from distance.

      But it was Simone Padoin who was first on the scoresheet, firing a volley into the ground that bounced past a helpless Marco Storari. Llorente was next to get amongst the goals, volleying home from an inviting right-sided delivery. Fellow new striker Carlos Tevez completed the 3-0 job when he sent Storari flying the wrong way with a low drive into the corner.

      The Bianconeri will wrap up their pre-season preparations in Chatillon with their final training session at 10am (CET) tomorrow.
