We've already guaranteed qualification, but it's crucial that we finish first in the group so as to avoid meeting Real Madrid or Chelsea in the next round. Juve only need a point at home to Olympiakos, but after three consecutive defeats, even the Greeks must be confident.

Lippi should play Del Piero and Trezeguet (who are clearly out of form) in this match, and let Di Vaio and Miccoli start against Parma (they deserve the opportunity). Davids is suspended so we'll most likely see Maresca in midfield.

I'm extremely interested in seeing if Lippi will include DP in the squad for this game. Hopefully so, as il capitano needs to play as many matches as possible if he's to regain top form any time soon.

in 1999, (UEFA cup) Juve beat Olympiakos 3-1 away and then lost 2-1 at home ... (just some bit of information; not that it means anything as far as this game is concerned)


Juve need to produce a sound performance.

I just hope we don't leak any more goals.

Won't happen, not with Lippi's rotation system :down: I say we play DP-Trez and then start Micco-DV against Parma.

Welll,,, i think that Lippi will keep DP as a starter for most of the upcoming matches.... like it was before Dp´s injury.

We need to win this one in our hoe... to at least boost the morale.

It could be silly to Understimate Olimpiakos, as they create a lot of havoc in their ground.....

after all..we are not in any position to have "airs of greatness" as we are coming from a shamefull week.

So, lets give a warm welcome to the greeks ;)

no, a draw is not enough. We have to crash them to raise our morale.
Yes, this is what I want to hear! We have to play with our first choice players to get our asses back in the track. You may say that they will get injured but I don't want to see an out of form first choice player in Juve shirt. Let them get injured, they deserve it, stupids.

Does it really make sense to play our first team on Wednesday and have them tired out for the Parma game? Keep in mind that we only need a draw at home to Olymp, but in Serie A we HAVE to beat Parma to keep up with Milan and Roma.

But our first team is out of form, they will never win any game while they are out of form. DP needs to play more and more games, Trez. the same.

we need a draw to guarantee the first spot and avoid the big guns ......ironically, Bayern Munich, Arsenal, and even Manchester United could finish second in their groups and meet us in the second phase.

well, i don't think any of our opponents in the next round are going to be easy...

i just hope we don't meet Deportivo again... can't stand them. although they are a lot less potent this time around without Makaay.
