Juventus fans will want to see their ailing club win something to bring joy off the pitch in an otherwise dark season for them when they begin their Coppa Italia campaign against Salernitana. Last season, they were docked points following the FIGC scandal, while this season, the club were rocked by the illegal gambling involving Nicolo Fabioli and the doping ban for Paul Pogba.

Either way, the mood has been grim for large parts. But Massimiliano Allegri has ensured they have much to fight for this season domestically. Juventus were also banned from European competitions, meaning they will only have the domestic double to aim for.

Having beaten AS Roma at home recently with a solitary goal from Adrien Rabiot, Juventus are only two points behind leaders Inter Milan in the Serie A standings. They will aim to kick-start their Coppa Italia campaign, having lost out to Inter Milan in a feisty semi-final last season. The Bianconeri have already won the cup a record 14 times, with Allegri setting sights on a 15th and probably a domestic double this season.

Salernitana will embrace the welcome distraction from their Serie A campaign to play with fresh ideas to succeed in the Coppa Italia. Filippo Inzaghi’s side are stuck at the bottom of the league table and now travel to Turin to play the first of their doubleheader against Juventus.
