For the very first time in Serie A, Juventus will face Spezia tomorrow in Cesena. This afternoon, Andrea Pirlo, from the press room of the Allianz Stadium, answered the questions of the journalists invited to the classic meeting on the eve of the match. "Tomorrow is a game we must win. It will be difficult, as it was in Crotone, Spezia are a newly promoted side who are doing well. I know their coach (Vincenzo Italiano) well, we were on the same coaching course together. We will have to have a good match and take home an important three points for the continuation of our path."


"The negative result of the second swab has also arrived, so today Cristiano Ronaldo will be called up to the team. He is fine and has been training individually this morning. I don't think he will start from the beginning, we will see how it goes tomorrow."


"For Matthijs de Ligt, we have to wait another week, as said by the orthopedist. Leonardo Bonucci trained separately yesterday, but today with the team. He will be available against Spezia, whilst Giorgio Chiellini will not be called up in order to continue his recovery work. He is better, but not yet available."


"At this moment there is still a lack of reactivity in recovering the ball. In the defensive phase we are one of the teams that has conceded the fewest goals. We want to impose an offensive game, it's normal that there may be a few more opportunities in the game for the others. In midfield we need an amalgamation between players who have played little together up to now, it takes time to understand each other in the movements on the pitch, we are working on the re-aggression phase, it must be more immediate. I'm not surprised about the pressure, I've always been in the spotlight and I'm used to having responsibilities. In the attack, Paulo Dybala is still not 100%, he needs to train and find the pace. Aaron Ramsey is also not at his best but we will take him to Cesena, one of our forwards should rest but now they have to play."
