It will be déjà vu for Juventus tomorrow when the Primavera line up against Lazio at Rome’s Stadio Olimpico in the Super Cup, the same opposition in the same stadium that Antonio Conte’s first team conquered to lift the senior title on 18 August.
Andrea Zanchetta’s side have qualified for the game as Coppa Italia winners, while Lazio are there on the basis of being league champions. The two will battle it out tomorrow (Thursday 26 September) at 20.45 CET, live on Jtv (where studio coverage will begin at 19.45 CET) and Sport Italia.
The coach has called up 23 youngsters, 21 of whom set off from Vinovo today after their final training session there before the match. The goalkeepers Gianmarco Vannucchi and Emil Audero will join up with their team-mates after their respective commitments with the first team and the national side.
Here’s the list of the 23 Bianconeri called up for the Primavera Super Cup:
Goalkeepers: Audero, Citti, Vannucchi
Defenders: Bertinetti, Curti, Garcia Tena, Marin, Romagna, Tavanti, Varga
Midfielders: Cevallos, Emmanuello, Gerbaudo, Hromada, Roussos, Sakor, Slivka
