  1. Juve storm over Anti-Mafia Commission http://www.football-italia.net/100386/juve-storm-over-anti-mafia-commission Mar 30, 2017 Tifosibianconeri English page - CLICK HERE A member of the Anti-Mafia commission accuses Juventus of corruption, with the President saying he is undermining the organisation. The Bianconeri are working with the commission in relation to infiltration of their ultras by the ‘Ndrangheta, the Calabrian mafia. In addition, the club has been deferred to the disciplinary commission of the FIGC, but a storm has erupted over the words of one of the Anti-Mafia Commission. Marcello Tagliatatela was interviewed on Radio 24 yesterday, and admitted to being a Napoli fan and chanting against Juve “when they deserve it”. Pressed on what that meant, he replied “when they get favours from referees” and then alluded to the Calciopoli scandal. Tagliatatela then declared “the referees are sponsored by Fiat, and therefore Juventus, they take money”, insisting that the AIA “has a sponsorship from a company owned by Fiat”. In fact the referees’ association is sponsored by EuroVita, which is 78 per cent owned by a large investment fund named J.C. Flowers & Co. The Agnelli family’s holding company, Exor, once had a tiny stake in the fund, but it was sold many years before the sponsorship of the AIA began in 2015. Unsurprisingly, the President of the Anti-Mafia Commission was displeased with her colleague. “The words of Tagliatatela are serious and unnecessarily offensive to the work of the Commission,” Rosy Bindi told Gazzetta dello Sport. Given the words of Tagliatatela, fans of the Old Lady have raised fears that the Commission will be biased against their club, but the man in question isn’t backing down. “They didn’t pay them [the referees] but they locked them in bathrooms,” he told Top Calcio 24. “I don’t forget what happened in the past, it can happen in the present too. I haven’t accused anyone, not even [Andrea] Agnelli, we’ll see what comes out of the Commission on the question of Juventus and the ‘Ndrangheta. “I should apologise? To who? To a club which had two Scudetti revoked?”
  2. NAPOLI - JUVENTUS MATCHDAY 30 Sunday, April 2nd, 2017 - 8:45 p.m.San Paolo Stadium, NaplesReferee: Daniele Orsato Agent: ‘Hysaj should be back’ http://www.football-italia.net/100385/agent-‘hysaj-should-be-back’ Mar 30, 2017 Tifosibianconeri English page - CLICK HERE Elseid Hysaj’s agent is “optimistic” that the Napoli full-back will be fit for the Juventus double-header. The defender was injured while on international duty with Albania, creating apprehension for the double showdown with the Bianconeri, Sunday in Serie A and Wednesday in the Coppa Italia. “He had an ankle problem, but I think we might be ok for Sunday,” Mario Giuffredi said on Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli. “We’re optimistic for the match with Juventus. The League game could create enthusiasm for the Coppa Italia, in which it will take a real feat [to come back].” http://www.goal.com/en/tables/serie-a/13?ICID=TP_TN_110
  3. NAPOLI - JUVENTUS MATCHDAY 30 Sunday, April 2nd, 2017 - 8:45 p.m.San Paolo Stadium, NaplesReferee: Daniele Orsato Juventus head into Napoli encounters seeking to protect treble ambitions Two games in Naples over the week will have a huge say in the club's hopes of making history http://www.blackwhitereadallover.com/2017/3/30/15086282/juventus- napoli-2017-serie-a-coppa-italia-semifinals-champions-league Mar 30, 2017 Tifosibianconeri English page - CLICK HERE It’s not often that two teams hold the fate of each other’s seasons, but that will be the case over the next week when Juventus face off against Napoli. Keen to hold onto an eight-point lead at the top of the Serie A table, Juve travel to Naples on Sunday. A positive result there would see them edge ever closer to the Serie A title while their opponents still hold distant championship hopes. Napoli are also wary of the chasing pack behind them for that third Champions League spot, with Lazio, Inter and Atalanta ready to pounce on any slip up. he meeting between these two is always highly-anticipated. That it will play a huge part in deciding both sides’ season ambitions makes it even more exciting. But the rivalry doesn’t stop there. The following Wednesday night will see them meet again, in the same place, at the same time for the Coppa Italia semifinal second leg. Juve hold a 3-1 lead from the meeting in Turin last month, which was dominated by controversy as the Bianconeri were awarded two penalties. Napoli threatened to field their second side for the return leg, but it’s unlikely that will occur as Maurizio Sarri’s men need just two goals to go through. They simply wanted to stir the pot with regards to what they see as generous refereeing in Juve’s favour but it would be unnecessary to throw away a chance in a cup final for the sake of making a point. The talk surrounding that first leg tie sets up this weekend’s match perfectly. Both teams are always looking to get one over on each other, and with their league positions at stake, we should see a feisty encounter. Max Allegri’s team selection will be interesting. Will he set up more defensively, looking to contain Napoli’s attack, which leads the league with 68 goals scored? Or perhaps he saves those tactics for the second leg clash where he can sit on a two goal lead. Juve aren’t exactly in desperate need for three points, with their comfortable advantage as league leaders, but it would be wise to not give Roma any confidence of an overthrow at the top as we head into the final weeks of the year. While Napoli boast an exciting attack, Allegri’s side are still the most astutely defensive of teams, not just in Italy either. Across Europe’s top 5 leagues of Spain, England, France, Germany and Italy, Juve have the second best record in terms of goals against with 19. Should Allegri fancy settling for a draw instead of push for all three on Sunday night, then chances are he’ll leave Naples a satisfied figure as Juve have the ability to sit back and soak up any pressure the home side throw at them. However, with the international break coming to an end Tuesday night, most of the squad should be fresh which might lead to to a more attacking approach. Roma face struggling Empoli at home on Saturday so Allegri’s hand could be forced if Juve’s lead is down to just 5 points by kickoff. Napoli would love nothing more than to dent their rival’s treble hopes. Having been eliminated from the Champions League by Real Madrid, the domestic competitions are all they have left to play for. What joy they would get if they heaped pressure on Juve in the league or ended their Italian Cup aspirations with an unlikely comeback. They won’t get a better chance to lump misery on their counterparts than the upcoming double meeting. Even if they lose in the league, they still have a chance to knock them out of the cup just a few days later. You can be sure the Naples club will be motivated for such an opportunity. Juve themselves have a chance to disrupt Napoli’s own domestic ambitions. Though they are 10 points behind the leaders, Napoli sit just six clear of Lazio and eight clear of Inter and Atalanta. Should they drop points at the weekend, they could find themselves a game clear of fourth place, which places a lot of pressure on a side expected to challenge for the title year in, year out. Napoli still have to face Lazio away from home, and it would be just as satisfying for Juve to throw their opponents season into disarray, especially after their complaints following last month’s victory. Napoli have picked up some impressive wins recently, most notably away to Roma and AC Milan but have also dropped points at home against Atalanta and Palermo. It’s been that sort of year for the club, but over the last few weeks they’ve started to show more consistency, winning 6 of their last 7 league games. Juve must be feeling confident heading into the next week due to their dominant record over Sarri’s team. They have lost only 3 from their last 13 contests, dating all the way back to 2011, while if you include the Super Cup, its 4 losses from 15. Juve constantly outmatch Napoli, and there’s nothing from this season to suggest the next two matches will be any different. These games always mean something, with the rivalry increasing these last few years, but next week’s encounters feel even more special as both teams’ season ambitions depend on them. http://www.goal.com/en/tables/serie-a/13?ICID=TP_TN_110
  4. Marko Pjaca out for rest of the season Forward has ACL tear http://www.blackwhitereadallover.com/2017/3/29/15114338/marko-pjaca- out-rest-of-the-season-acl-tear-injury-juventus-croatia-team-news Mar 29, 2017 Tifosibianconeri English page - CLICK HERE Juventus forward Marko Pjaca sustained an anterior cruciate ligament tear last night in Croatia’s friendly against Estonia, and will miss the rest of this season. The 21-year-old was stretchered off after appearing to get his foot caught in a divot and twisting his knee. The makeshift Croatia side went on to lose 3-0 in the insignificant friendly in Estonia. The Croatian Football Federation announced that results of the tests, confirming the injury and Juventus fans’ worst fears. This is the second major injury Pjaca has had this season, both sustained during international duty. He had injured his lower leg (fibula) in October 2016 when Croatia was preparing for World Cup qualifiers against Bosnia and Finland. He ended up missing nearly three months, and has only featured in 14 games all season for Juve. Pjaca was expected back in Vinovo this afternoon to start his rehabilitation. Bianconeri teammate Claudio Marchisio, who himself has just returned to the side after spending an extended period out with a knee injury, sent him his best wishes, expecting him to return stronger.
  5. Juve ask Milan for De Sciglio http://www.football-italia.net/100381/juve-ask-milan-de-sciglio Mar 29, 2017 Tifosibianconeri English page - CLICK HERE Juventus have reportedly made a formal offer for Milan full-back and Italy international Mattia De Sciglio, who is out of contract in 2018. The Bianconeri’s interest in the versatile figure is nothing new, particularly as Max Allegri effectively launched his career at San Siro. According to Calciomercato.com, the situation has taken a step forward with Juve contacting Milan for a proposal. His current contract with the Rossoneri is due to expire in June 2018 and he does not seem particularly inclined to sign a new deal. All contract issues are currently up in the air, as Milan are in the middle of a takeover that might be completed on April 14. In order to avoid losing him as a free agent next year, a summer sale is entirely possible, especially with more important players to lock down like Gianluigi Donnarumma and Suso. A deal could well be struck for around €15m for the 24-year-old, who can play on the right or left of defence or midfield.
  6. Sanchez: 'I want to stay in London' http://www.football-italia.net/100377/sanchez-i-want-stay-london Mar 29, 2017 Tifosibianconeri English page - CLICK HERE Juventus and Inter target Alexis Sanchez insists he wants “to stay in a winning team and keep playing in the same city. I hope to finish my contract at Arsenal.” The Chile international spoke at a media event in Santiago after scoring in their World Cup qualifier. “I am happy in London and I hope to finish my contract at Arsenal,” he said. “I want to stay in a winning team and keep playing in the same city. I want to play in a team that has aspirations. “I’m 28 years old, I still have a lot ahead of me. I am a player who takes great care of himself.” Sanchez is under contract until June 2018 and seemed unlikely to sign an extension. Juventus had been the favourites for his signature, with Inter and Paris Saint-Germain also options. Antonio Conte’s Chelsea have emerged as contenders, which would fit Sanchez’s comments that he would like to remain in London. However, the Gunners would not reinforce their Premier League rivals, so prefer to sell abroad.
  7. NAPOLI - JUVENTUS MATCHDAY 30 Sunday, April 2nd, 2017 - 8:45 p.m.San Paolo Stadium, NaplesReferee: Daniele Orsato Higuan 'will feel consequences' http://www.football-italia.net/100374/higuan-will-feel-consequences Mar 29, 2017 Tifosibianconeri English page - CLICK HERE Gonzalo Higuain “will feel the consequences of his choices” when Juventus visit Napoli on Sunday, said Nicola Amoruso. This will be the Argentine’s first visit back to the Stadio San Paolo since he left the Partenopei in a Serie A transfer record €90m deal. It’ll be followed next Wednesday by another match here for the Coppa Italia semi-final. “Higuain is a champion and two very difficult games await him in Naples,” said Amoruso – who played for both clubs – told Radio CRC. “His departure was seen as a betrayal, but in those three years he gave extraordinary performances, rewarded by the unique affection from those fans. “Higuain will feel the consequences of his choices the moment he steps on to the field. In some games, the Stadio San Paolo can give you so much and right now there is a great deal of enthusiasm in the city. “However, when things are going badly, the San Paolo atmosphere can burn you. Either way, it’s an unforgettable experience.” http://www.goal.com/en/tables/serie-a/13?ICID=TP_TN_110

He had already been in the Partenopei’s radar for some time, but now face stiff competition from some of Europe’s biggest clubs. According to The Sun, Juventus, Bayern Munich and Antonio Conte’s Chelsea have joined the fray and promise a bidding war this summer. Toljan has one goal in 13 caps for Germany at Under-21 level and is prized for his versatility, as he can also play at right-back. This season he has one goal and one assist in 14 Bundesliga appearances for Hoffenheim and is valued at around €5m.

Juve will stay at the Grand Hotel Parker in Corso Vittorio Emanuele, but won’t remain there for the entire duration. “The hotel will be on lockdown with maximum security considering the nature of the event,” hotel director Antonio Maiorino told Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli. “We received very precise instructions from the authorities and from Juventus to be extremely careful. Nobody must be let in without permission. “We will maintain privacy and ensure the safety of our guests. We want to give an image of Naples as a hospitable place that doesn’t let itself be taken over by fanatics. “Juve will return to us on Sunday. We thought they’d be staying with us throughout the whole period, but that is not the case, so they’ll come back for the Coppa Italia game. “They have not made any personal requests. Their chef will collaborate with ours in the kitchen and they have booked 60 rooms.” http://www.goal.com/en/tables/serie-a/13?ICID=TP_TN_110

The 21-year-old was stretchered off during Croatia’s friendly last night, and it was today confirmed that he’ll miss the rest of the season with an ACL injury. “The pitch we played on was unworthy of professional football,” Perisic fumed, speaking to vecernji.hr. “There’s no reason to organise a game of this type. I’d recommend to Mr [Davor] Suker [head of the Croatian FA] to choose better opponents with superior facilities because all that will happen is we’ll lose more players on these horrible pitches. “The biggest defeat in this friendly was losing Pjaca. The pitch was criminal, terrible.”
  12. Croatia confirm ACL injury for Juventus star Pjaca The midfielder was stretchered off during his national side's defeat to Estonia and will now miss the rest of the season. http://www.goal.com/en-gb/news/683/main/2017/03/29/34122262/- Mar 29, 2017 Tifosibianconeri English page - CLICK HERE Juventus winger Marko Pjaca's season is over after the Croatian FA confirmed he sustained an anterior cruciate knee ligament injury while on international duty against Estonia.

  13. Juventus to make move for Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin? http://www.sportsmole.co.uk/football/arsenal/transfer-talk/news/ italian-giants-to-move-for-arsenal-defender_294846.html Mar 29, 2017 Tifosibianconeri English page - CLICK HERE Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin has reportedly emerged as a transfer target for Juventus ahead of the summer transfer window. It has previously been suggested that the Gunners would have to fend off interest from Barcelona for the right-back, who spent time at Camp Nou until the age of 16. However, after it was alleged that Barcelona had ended their pursuit of the Spaniard, it appeared that Arsenal would not face a fight to keep him at the Emirates Stadium, but it has now been claimed that another European giants is interested in his signature. According to Tuttosport, Juventus want to strengthen their squad at the end of the season, and Bellerin has been placed towards the top of their shortlist. Bellerin recently signed a long-term deal in North London, meaning that Juventus would have to spend big on the 22-year-old, but it has been reported that his new contract has not swayed them against making a bid for his services. The player has scored three times in 102 appearances for the Premier League side.
