    The Viola boss calls on his men to raise the bar on Friday night against the reigning champions

    Fiorentina boss Vincenzo Montella believes his charges will have to dig deep if they are to get the better of a Juventus outfit who have won their last six games in all competitions.

    But the Viola are in good form themselves, approaching the game off the back of two consecutive triumphs on the road, and the 40-year-old is encouraging his side to adopt a positive approach when going toe to toe with the reigning champions tomorrow night.

    Speaking to the media in Florence, Montella began: “We’ll need to draw on everything we’ve got. Cool heads and desire are required to face an opponent like Juventus.

    “It’s difficult when lining up against top-rate opposition and the game will be extremely complicated, but it means a great deal to us. We want to treat our fans to an important result.

    “When you have a passionate support it gives you added motivation to go the extra mile. Our fans are loud, it may not be enough to win but at the same time they represent an added weapon in our armoury. If you want to try and get all three points you need to take the odd risk. We’re not built to play on the counter.”
