Good morning my friends! Grabbing my cup of coffee while checking the Italian newspapers. Here are the front pages of La Gazzetta dello Sport, Corriere dello Sport, and Tutto Sport, Tuesday 25 April 2017. Bam! A headline hitting me big time is about AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma and the possible departure to another club offering more money. Milan responding with the chance of offering even to become Captain. Well, the headline not making good news is about Pescara losing at the Adriatico Stadium totally humiliated by AS Roma defeating them with a 1-4. This result sending Pescara already to Serie B. Sad relegation. Oh gosh…. I do wish Torino forward Andrea Belotti remain with Torino……
Oh my gosh… here is a bim bam boom headline…. Inter decided to get coach Simeone!!!!! Oops, you bet the new Inter management is not happy with Inter’s performance. In any case…. since the times of Mourinho when they won the Treble, thy have changed 10 coaches and things not improving…… Challenge now is for Inter to make a comeback and defeat Napoli at the San Paolo Stadium this Sunday … something difficult.

Stephan Lichtsteiner speaks after the semi-final draw: “Monaco are dangerous but we have the confidence to go all the way to the final”
RESPECT FOR MONACO
“Monaco are a tough side to beat. Knowing how dangerous they can be, we certainly won’t be underestimating them. I haven’t seen many of their games season but, knowing a bit about the squad and seeing them up close against us two years ago when they had the same coach, I can say they play some lovely football.
“They have pace in abundance up front and are a very slick attacking outfit. This is a team that will enter the tie with nothing to lose and the pressure will be squarely on our shoulders to go through. If they have a weakness, it could be their lack of experience, being such a young group. You could say they concede a lot of goals but score even more.”

2015 JUVE VS. 2017 JUVE
“People are making favourable comparisons between this Juventus and the one that got to the final but the only way we can prove that is by winning the trophy. I don’t know if this current vintage is better; in midfield then we had Pirlo, Vidal, Pogba and Marchisio, we had great strikers and our defence is more or less the same now.
“What you can say for certain is that this is a different team that has the experience of Berlin, losing to Bayern in unfortunate circumstances last season and beating Barcelona this time behind it; we’ve grown mentally and now we have the belief to go and win the whole thing.”
BEATING BARÇA MUST BE THE NORM
“Our celebrations were discreet at the Camp Nou and that is exactly how it should be: yes, we’re in the semi-final but we haven’t won anything yet. We’re in a great position but everything is still up for grabs.
“We’ve played a variety of different systems in the past few years but looking at the performances we are producing at the moment, you would have to say that the 4-2-3-1 is perfect for the players we have at our disposal.”
NEW FOCUS FOR GENOA
“We struggled at Genoa earlier in the campaign; I don’t remember games in which we lost particularly well. Conceding three goals in the first 25 minutes had never happened before, at least not in my six years at the club. We’re in a different phase of the season now and we can’t afford to drop any points.”
