Cosmi: Lecce will give Juventus a game

The flamboyant coach has nothing but praise for the Serie A leader, but has stressed that his side will do its utmost to cause an upset in Turin.
Lecce coach Serse Cosmi is confident that his team has what it takes to trouble Juventus in Wednesday's Serie A match in Turin.

Cosmi is full of respect for the Bianconeri following their impressive performances in the 2011-12 campaign, but believes Lecce can 'give them a game' with the right attitude.

"We know we face a team that has conceded just one goal in the last eight games. Juventus are enjoying a superb championship with great results and football of the highest level," Cosmi said at a press conference. "I don’t know how much chance we have of getting a result in Turin, but with the right attitude we could give them a game.

“We’ll need players who don’t surrender and are able to find the strength to give even more than they have done up until now."
