Juventus reached the semi-finals of the Copa Italia with an authoritative performance and a convincing result against Roma last night. After the game the Bianconeri coach Maurizio Sarri spoke about the 3-1 result.
“We played a good game against a strong team that dribbles well and who can put you in difficulty. Age does not count for Buffon; he is a goalkeeper at a high-level. Douglas Costa is not yet 100% but compared to the previous game he improved, and regards to, Higuain I'm sorry he didn't score, he would have deserved it.
“Ronaldo is in extraordinary shape right now and is scoring with impressive pace; he is a champion, one of the strongest of all time and it would be important for us to help him conquer the sixth Ballon d’Or: it is something that would make us happy.
“Regarding the full backs, at the moment we are left with Cuadrado, who has recovered from flu, and with Alex Sandro who had a problem on the transverse muscle, but during the season we played a game with Matuidi full back, in case of need we also have him.”
