Genoa boss Gian Piero Gasperini says his men are determined to right the wrongs of last weekend’s defeat to Chievo by producing a positive response when they welcome Juventus to the Luigi Ferraris on Sunday night.
The 56-year-old, who rose up through the Juventus academy ranks as a youth player in the early 1970s, was in charge the last time the Rossoblu beat the Bianconeri in 2009, their only win in 20 previous top flight encounters between the sides.
And with the inevitable motivation that comes with taking on the league leaders, Gasperini is hoping his trrops can produce another upset tomorrow evening.
Previewing the game in Liguria, he said: “We’ve always put on a good show against Juventus on home soil, and tomorrow we’ll try and do more of the same.
“There’s plenty of motivation involved when taking on the Bianconeri and we’ll give our all to claim as many points between now and the end of the season.
“We were disappointed by the defeat in Verona and now we want to get back on the pitch with great determination.”
