      The Bianconere are on the hunt for a 14th straight league victory in Saturday’s home match, which you can watch live on Juventus Pass (14.30 CET kick-off)

      FIGHTING FOR A 14TH WIN

      It might be mid-February, but Juventus Women still have a 100% record this season, having won all 13 of their league matches to date.

      Last time out, Rita Guarino’s side defeated Res Roma in a hard-fought encounter in the capital thanks to Ingvild Isaksen’s second-half winner, making it a birthday to remember for the Norwegian midfielder.

      ABOUT EMPOLI

      Empoli Ladies are looking to bounce back from last weekend’s 4-1 home defeat to Chievo. The Tuscans currently sit second-from-bottom in the Serie A table on eight points.

      However, Saturday’s opponents are stronger on the road than at home and have picked up seven of those eight points from away fixtures.

      Empoli’s top scorer this season is Caterina Bargi, who has four goals to her name.

      WHAT RITA SAID

      “I’m expecting Empoli to come out fighting on Saturday and work very hard, especially in midfield. We want to come out on top, of course, growing throughout the game and always focused on getting the three points.

      “We’re back at home and playing in front of our fans again, who keep showing their passionate support for us at all of our matches.”

      Juventus Women coach, Rita Guarino.

      RUSSO'S WORDS

      Here is what Juventus Women goalkeeper, Federica Russo, said about Saturday's opponents:

      “Empoli made a great impression on me in our first match-up because they tried to play an open game, looking to build smartly and attack.

      "Now that they've faced us once already, they will probably be a little bit more cautious on Saturday, but we are both teams looking for points. We won't give up an inch!”
