Inter boss Walter Mazzarri has called on his players to rise to the occasion when they step out in front of a capacity crowd at Juventus Stadium on Sunday night.
The former Napoli manager has tasted defeat on his previous two evenings spent in the visitors’ dugout and expects to lead his men into another red-hot atmosphere tomorrow.
Speaking to reporters in Milan, the 52-year-old began: “Juve’s home form says it all, the atmosphere helps them a great deal. We’ve considered it, but we must concentrate on playing our game.”
Mazzarri revealed that he will be without recent signing Hernanes for the trip to Turin, but remains confident his team has all it takes to produce a strong performance after working well in midweek.
He added: “I’ve prepared for the game with the players I already had in my squad. I’ve tried to isolate them from everything that’s been going on and I’m satisfied with the work we’ve done, we hope we’ll be up to the task. We need to do our best when we cross the white line tomorrow night.”
