The most salivating draw in the Round of 16 features two very familiar foes. Fiorentina trails Juventus by a whopping 27 points in the Serie A table. A steep disparity was only exacerbated by a 1-0 victory the Old Lady captured over Fiorentina in Week 27. That, however, hasn’t kept manager Vincenzo Montella from being optimistic about his men’s chances ahead of today’s clash. There’ll be no intimidation once the opening whistle blows (h/t to Matthew Rogerson on Goal). “The tie will be played over 180 minutes and although it will be difficult, we'll be going for the win,” Montella said. “Not many teams have put in the kind of second-half performance we did in Turin on Sunday. It wasn't easy,” he added.
“We need to play our own game, bringing out our qualities against stronger opposition. It will be a stimulating challenge.”
