Rome: Juventus have not given up hope of returning to Serie A.
It’s an issue that has dogged the club for some time.
The team is under pressure to reach the Europa League play-offs after a disastrous run to the final of the Champions League last season.
It will be the third consecutive season that Juve has been relegated.
In the end, it’s the players who get to decide.
The president of Juventus, Maurizio Sarri, made the announcement in a press conference on Wednesday.
The Nerazzurri have been in the hunt for Champions League football since the 2010-11 season, but they have failed to qualify for the competition in the last five years.
Last year, they reached the group stage of the competition, losing to Barcelona in the semi-final.
It was the worst result in Juve’s history, and the club are desperate for a win to return to the top flight.
They hope to add to their silverware this season with victory against Fiorence 0-0 at the Stadio Olimpico.
It will be a game that has already been discussed and debated at the club.
The Bianconeri will have to win to reach Europa League action next season, after the defeat to AC Milan on Saturday.
They also have to lose to Atalanta in the Europa Super Cup, which has already happened.
However, they also have the option to face a Fiorencia side who finished in third place last season, losing their opening match to Inter.
Juve will have a tougher time if they are unable to qualify.
There is a chance that a 3-2 win could be enough to guarantee Juve a place in the Champions’ League, although the match will be decided by aggregate points.
Juventas chances to secure their first win in Serie A are slim, and a 2-1 defeat against the Nerazzi would be an emphatic disappointment.
A 3-0 loss would leave the Nerazos in sixth place, a position that they had hoped to avoid for much of the season.
If they can’t overcome a 0-2 deficit, they will be in the relegation zone for the first time in five years and they will have until the end of the month to qualify from the Europa Group.
Juventus also have a tough run to recover from the loss to AC Napoli, with their two other games coming against Sassuolo and Inter.
A 1-0 defeat against Fiorenza could spell the end for their season, as would a 2+1 draw against Cesena.
