    Juventus Women midfielder Martina Rosucci previews the team’s first ever Serie A home match against Res Roma this Saturday

    Childhood Bianconeri fan and midfielder for the Italian Women’s national team, Martina Rosucci is now a key player and character within the Juventus Women setup.

    Technically gifted, highly competitive and fully committed to every tackle and match she plays, Martina proudly dons the number 8 shirt, thus following in the footsteps of a certain Claudio Marchisio.

    So far it’s been a super start to the campaign for Juventus Women, who cruised past Torino in their Coppa Italia tie – the very first goal of which was in fact scored by Rosucci – before kicking off life in Serie A with a 3-0 win over Atalanta Mozzanic last Saturday.

    Now, Rosucci and company will be looking to build on that victory when they host Res Roma in Vinovo this Saturday (kick-off at 15.00 CEST).

    SPIRITS SKY HIGH

    “I feel great and I’m very positive about the season ahead. This is a young and diverse group of players with many foreign girls alongside us Italians. In a short space of time, we’ve managed to strike up a great rapport with one another.”

    REUNITED WITH RITA

    “The coach (Rita Guarino) is making her ideas very clear to us players. She works a lot on all the details, including the psychological aspect of the game. We’re both from Turin and I already had the chance to get to know her from the Italy Under 17 setup. We’ve built a relationship of respect between us.”

    JUVENTUS WOMEN’S FIRST GOALSCORER

    “I have to be honest: during the match, I wasn’t even thinking about the fact that it was this team’s first ever goal. Then, when they told me after the final whistle, I felt quite emotional, especially given how much this shirt and these colours mean to me.”

    READY FOR ROMA TEST

    “Res Roma has always been a very tough opponent. They’ve a very direct style and they look to play to these strengths.

    “We have to be clear-thinking, looking to impose ourselves and to exploit our opportunities to score. This is a home match for us, so emotions will be running high and it’ll be important to get the crowd right behind us, cheering us on to victory.”
