      The Biaconere continue their Coppa Italia journey with Wednesday’s match against Novese for a place in the quarter-finals

      Perfect still in Serie A following last Saturday’s victory over Pink Bari, Juventus Women turn attentions to the Coppa Italia this Wednesday.

      It is local Piemontese outfit and Serie B side, Novese, who stand in the Bianconere’s way of a quarter-final berth. Fans can follow the action live on the official Juventus Women Twitter account and on Instagram Stories.

      ROUTE TO THE ROUND OF 16

      Juventus Women booked their place in the last 16 by beating Femminile Juventus Torino 2-0 in Vinovo thanks to goals by Sanni Franssi and Arianna Caruso (see match highlights below).

      Rita Guarino’s girls kicked off their cup run in style with a 21-0 aggregate victory over Torino Calcio Femminile at the start of the season.

      Novese, meanwhile, defeated Luserna 5-0 away in the last round, having topped their first-round group with a 1-0 win over Molassana and 2-2 draw at Ligorna.

      The other last 16 fixtures are as follows:

      Tavagnacco vs Trento Clarentina
