      The Bianconere will be back in Serie A action against Inter on 16 February. First up, though, the first leg Coppa Italia fixture against Empoli

      Juventus failed to take home all three points for only the second time this season, as they played to a 0-0 draw against Florentia at Stadio Santa Lucia in San Gimignano on Saturday afternoon.

      FIRST HALF

      Maria Alves was the first to test Florentia’s goalkeeper when she went one-on-one with her marker, rounded her and fired with her right foot which forced Schroffengger to push it away from goal.  Both teams were struggling to break down the opposition and by the half hour mark, the scoreline was still goalless. Caruso then fed through a great ball to Maria Alves on the edge of the box, but play was halted as the Brazilian was deemed to have brought down a Florentia player. Last week’s match-winning goalscorer, Pedersen, fired the final shot at goal, but it was blocked by the body of Bursi.

      SECOND HALF

      Pedersen threatened immediately after the restart, but Schroffengger was equal to it as she plucked it out the air. Valentina Cernoia came close to breaking the deadlock with a header that nearly saw the ball go in at the back post, while Barbara Bonansea was brought on in place of Maria Alves on the hour mark. Perhaps the best chance of the game came from Girelli, when she got onto the end of Boattin’s ball and fired at goal, forcing the Florentia goalkeeper to parry it away. Bonansea then had a ball that glanced across the face of goal, while Girelli and Pedersen where both denied by Schroffengger again. Staskova then replaced Rosucci, while Galli replaced Caruso in the 73rd and 83rd minute respectively. However, the Bianconere couldn’t find a way to break through their opposition as credit had to be given to the Florentia goalkeeper’s performance.
