The Primavera will need to put their disappointment of being held to a draw at home to FC Copenhagen in the UEFA Youth League behind them, with their sights now set on upcoming domestic challenges.
The first hurdle for Andrea Zanchetta’s side to overcome is two league fixtures at home in the space of four days. But the side haven’t dropped a point in the four games they have played at Chisola this season, so will be confident of coming out on top again.
Modena are their first challengers, the Bianconeri’s fifth consecutive opponent from the region of Emilia after previously taking on Parma, Carpi, Bologna and Sassuolo.
And given the record of three victories and a defeat in those four fixtures, the objective will be to continue that good form with another three points from the 14.30 CET kick-off.
On Wednesday 4 December, meanwhile, the Primavera’s Coppa Italia adventure begins. The youngsters embark on this year’s campaign as reigning champions after last season’s triumph in the final against Napoli, with their title defence getting underway against Varese in the last 16.
This year’s competition has a new format in that the last 16 is no longer a two-legged affair. Instead, whoever triumphs in the single knock-out game between Juve and Varese will go straight through to the quarter finals to face the winner of Torino against Sampdoria.
