Empoli Coach Aurelio Andreazzoli details his plan of attack against Atalanta this weekend

Empoli Coach Aurelio Andreazzoli details his plan of attack against Atalanta this weekend

Two years ago, in the last match of the season, Inter were fighting for a Champions League place; Empoli, battling to stay in Serie A. On opposing benches: Luciano Spalletti and Aurelio Andreazzoli. Competitors in the lower divisions, roommates in the coaching course, Andreazzoli was Spalletti’s loyal assistant during his adventures at Udinese and Roma. But on that day they were rivals not friends.
We haven’t talked about that game since we bumped into each other during the post-match press conference. He’d just finished his while I was about to start mine, and in front of everyone he told me we didn’t deserve to be relegated but unfortunately we went down. We rarely meet now and when we do we don’t talk about that game. It’s too painful for me to remember” stated Andreazzoli.
A winner and a loser – but both lost their jobs after the match and after taking some time off, both came back to Serie A this summer. Spalletti in a new club while Andreazzoli returned to Empoli to complete the task.
Our motto is on display in the dressing room “It can be done”. We must believe that we can defeat any opponent. We must believe in ourselves and in our ideas and in the work we do everyday in training, that way we can overcome every obstacle. I really hope we manage to achieve our objective this time around, which is to stay in Serie A” explained Andreazzoli.

Andreazzoli’s teams are always known for their strong mindset and attacking style. Empoli have demonstrated both qualities this season, as much in their defeats as in their victories.We’ll see his ideas put into practice against visiting Atalanta on Sunday. Andreazzoli has never beaten Gianpiero Gasperini in his career. A first win over his opposite number would be a big feather in the Empoli coach’s cap.

Cagliari seek their first Serie A Win this season against Sampdoria

Cagliari seek their first Serie A Win this season against Sampdoria

Three points from a possible 21. Cagliari are the only team in Serie A yet to win this season – and they’re bottom of the table. It’s early enough in the campaign for them to get out of trouble – but the pressure’s building. So this week the Sardinians need to add to their 25 victories over Sampdoria – they’ve defeated Samp more than any other team in the top flight. Sampdoria’s in form Antonio Candreva may well be the man Cagliari need to watch out for the most. He’s the team’s most influential player this campaign with 3 goals and 2 assists He’ll aim to help break the Blucerchiati’s island curse. They’ve always struggled in Sardinia: their last victory was back in November 2007.

Juventus aims to extend 3 game winning streak against Roma

Juventus aims to extend 3 game winning streak against Roma.

Juventus are back! 3 wins in a row before the international break and now the Bianconeri welcome Roma. Max Allegri wants another victory to show everyone that his side mean business. This will be the 175th league encounter between these two teams and history favours the Old Lady, they’ve clocked up 83 wins –the Giallorossi with only half as many. Bonucci & Co have prevailed in 9 out of the last 10 matches against Roma at the Allianz Stadium… The Giallorossi for their part have claimed 9 victories in Turin but over the course of 90 years of Serie A history. That’s a win every 10 seasons. This is the kind of challenge Jose Mourinho relishes. He has the talent to turn the tide – Jordan Veretout stands out right now – he’s Roma’s top-scorer this term with 4 goals, and has struck before against the Bianconeri.
