The Bianconere ladies have been preparing for their ‘Premiere’ at the iconic stadium, kick-off at 15:00 (CET), in what is expected to be a record attendance for a Serie A Femminile encounter.
Speaking to Sky, Valentina Cernoia was the first to talk about the big-match. Here’s what she had to say.
“It’s a proud and emotional feeling. I only recently found out about how many tickets were acquired. We still hope that many people will come, because we dream of a full stadium."
WHAT THE GAME MEANS
“There is certainly a lot of emotion, but what is most important is to put on a good show for the people that have come to watch and for those at the stadium who have come to watch the ladies. This is like a final, and one of the last games that await us in the season. Us and Fiorentina are at the top of the Serie A table. We are expecting a lot of enthusiasm from the supporters."
STRENGTH OF THE TEAMS
"Juventus’ strengths is certainly the unity of the group, and our attack, when we are on a hot streak, they give everyone fear. Regarding Fiorentina, they have a lot of individual strengths to control, but also them up front can give opposition a fright. However, we have the Italian national team defence."
THE MOOD IN THE CAMP
“We don’t fear anyone, and there isn’t anyone in particular we have to remove from the game. There is a lot of individual players that we need to be aware of and control, but if Juve play like Juve, we will play for a record.
“The mood is that it is a top-of-the-table clash to play for championship, so there are no friendships for that hour and a half on the pitch. At the end of the game there will be kisses and hugs, but we will play for the three points to bring the title back home."
