      Cagliari manager Ivo Pulga recognises the Bianconeri will be in the mood to end their season on a high at Juventus Stadium tomorrow, but insists his men will travel to Turin looking to play their own game

      Cagliari manager Ivo Pulga has acknowledged the scale of the challenge that awaits his men tomorrow against the Bianconeri side 60 points above them in the Serie A table, but says the Rossoblu will not be lying down easily as they attempt to spoil the champions of Italy’s party.

      Speaking to the media this afternoon, the 49-year-old former midfielder began: “A tough task awaits us. Juve won’t be in holiday mode, quite the opposite: they’ll be strongly motivated by their desire to reach an unprecedented 100 Serie A points, and the ground will be packed to the rafters to celebrate the Scudetto triumph.”

      But Pulga went on to reassure Rossoblu fans that Cagliari have no intention of becoming the sacrificial victim of the festivities at Juventus Stadium, a ground where they are the only side still unbeaten amongst those who have played more than two league games there.

      “We’ll go looking to play our own game, bearing in mind our favourable record at the ground.”

      The Rossoblu boss’ concluding sentiment was one of satisfaction with the way the group tackled and successfully achieved their salvation aim this year.

      “It’s true that the points tally required for salvation has been low, but it’s also the case that we reached 39 with three games to spare, so I’d say that we’ve avoided the drop on the basis of our merits.”
