Coppa Italia Game Time Thread: Juventus vs. Lazio

Valerio Pennicino

Just win, baby.

So, here we are. After a scoreless draw at the Juventus Stadium a week ago, Juve and Lazio meet one more time in a winner-takes-all second leg with a berth in the Coppa Italia final on the line. Or, Juventus could win on away goals if they score two or more, but isn't winning just a lot more fun? Yeah, it is.

That means winning at the Olimpico, which isn't exactly the easiest thing to do these days.

It's not impossible, though. I mean, Juventus did win in Rome the last time they played Lazio, so there's something to hang your hat on if you're having any kinds of doubts about this. Sure, different year and yada yada yada, but it's always nice to have some confidence going into a pretty big game.

And knowing who Juventus' manager is, I'll feel safe is saying that there isn't a lack of confidence regardless of how is team is playing right now.

Just win, Juventus. That's really all we can ask for. Don't make it interesting. Just win. The idea of having a silver star is really cool, so let's not be forced to wait another year or two, okay? Just a suggestion.
