The new year has only just begun and already there are a couple of huge knockout games on the Bianconeri horizon, the latter of which could potentially yield the first trophy of 2019. As we build up to the first competitive games of the new year, Federico Bernardeschi has been speaking about returning to work and getting into the right mindset for these ties.
“We’re feeling good ahead of these two decisive matches: the Coppa Italia and the Super Cup,” the winger began. “It won’t be easy atBologna – it’s the first game back after the break, which will make it even more taxing as starting again is never easy. We will need to be very focused.”
Following the Coppa Italia on Saturday, Juventus travel to Saudi Arabia to contest the Super Cup against AC Milan.
“It will be a completely different experience, but both matches fit in with our objective, which is to win both competitions. We expect a pleasant shock in terms of the climate in Jeddah, but we’ll be ready. The important thing is to approach the match in the right way.”
