    The Bianconeri draw the Campania-based Serie B club in the last 16 fixture that will kick off their domestic cup campaign

    Juventus’ first opponents in their 2013/14 Coppa Italia campaign will be Serie B outfit Avellino.

    The date and time has not yet been made official by the Lega Calcio, but Antonio Conte can now begin to devise a battle plan for the last 16 tie at Juventus Stadium in the knowledge of whom his team face.

    The Bianconeri’s newly-promoted opponents, based in the hills of Campania, set up the encounter with the champions of Italy via a 2-1 win against Frosinone yesterday.

    The fixture has an extra significance for Conte’s right-hand man Angelo Alessio, who began his playing career with Avellino before joining Juventus in 1987.
