Command Status

Both teams’ success in the Cup contrasts with their performances in the league. It depends, though. Juventus are winning there as well, but have scored more than four goals in any competition and won by more than four for the first time since February 2018. Well, Frosinone smashed Napoli on the back of four defeats in the league, one point in six matches there.

The Bianconeri have won by more than one goal in their last 15 matches only once. Three days after a 6-1 win over Salernitana, they were beaten 2-1 in the 91st minute against Salernitana in the league, despite playing with ten men with 53. Nevertheless, another victory and 36 points in the last 14 rounds allow Juve to fight for the Scudetto.

Frosinone, on the other hand, initially seemed to be the sensation of the Serie A season, but then went downhill, as often happens. He struggles, though. Three rounds ago, he conceded 1-2 at home against the same Juventus in the 82nd minute, two rounds ago Lazio had to make a comeback against him, starting in the 70th, and in the previous one from 0-3 against Monza managed to return to 2-3.

In fact, today the team in the best and worst shape in the league in terms of results meet.

Frosinone are five points above the relegation zone, so they shouldn’t be too nervous yet. And he may want to repeat Cremonese’s campaign in the Cup last season. He was also a newcomer to Serie A, but managed to beat first Napoli and then Roma away at Coppa and make it to the semi-finals.

Eusebio Di Francesco’s wards play aggressively, press, like to dominate, to possess the ball. In the match against Juventus, we had 56 percent possession at home. Most likely, they will play boldly in Turin as well. Well, Massimiliano Allegri’s wards, as always, will try to play in an organized manner.

Cup goalkeeper Perin will play for Juventus again. Locatelli returns. Like Cambiaso after an illness. Although Allegri admitted that it would be difficult for the latter to come out from the first minutes. Defensively, Gatti and Bremer will play, and Rugani may give Danilo a rest. On the left, Ealing Junior, the scorer of the goal in Salerno, can move Kostic.

Turnovers in the middle of the field and in attack. Chiesa is out again, which is what they are used to. But Rabiot’s injury is a serious and unexpected blow. In attack, 18-year-old Yildiz will get a chance. Perhaps with Milik, since Vlahovic, the author of the winning goals in the end in both Frosinone and Salerno, will rest a little. In midfield, it is Miretti, not Nicolussi Caviglia.

Frosinone took out Napoli with a rotating squad, and in the league they fail with the main one. Different sources today predict different things. Most likely, the cup goalkeeper Cerofolini and reserve defenders Lusuardi and Kvernadze will remain. But this time, Barrenechea, Soule and Jorge, who were loaned from Juventus, should come out from the first minutes in full strength.

Juventus: Perin, Gatti, Bremer, Rugani, Weah, Locatelli, McKennie, Miretti, Ealing-Junior, Milik, Yildiz

Frosinone: Cerofolini, Okoli, S. Romagnoli, Lusuardi, Kvernadze, Barrenechea, Brescianini, Garritano, Sule, Jorge, Ibrahimovic

Prediction: Juventus – Frosinone 3:1

And in previous years, when they suffered in the league, Juventus performed powerfully in the Cup. Now, when he is second in the league and has not lost since September, he is even more obliged. He is also obliged because of two years without trophies, and because of the relegation of many competitors. Frosinone, Lazio, Atalanta or Fiorentina in the final is not the most difficult path.

Frosinone will resist. Given Juve’s defensive struggles of late, the visitors could be able to score. But it won’t be anything like a 4-0 win over Napoli. After all, it is ruined, and the people of Turin are gathered.
