Rossi expects Samp-Juve festival

Sampdoria conclude their season tonight with Juventus and Delio Rossi is glad it’ll be “a festival against one of the best teams in Europe.”

The only Serie A game of today kicks off at Marassi at 19.45 UK time (18.45 GMT), click here for a match preview.

“I trust it will be a festival against one of the best teams in Europe and I’m happy that we round off the season with such a top class fixture,” said the Coach.

The Blucerchiati could become the only side to beat Juventus twice in Serie A this term, as in January they won 2-1 in Turin despite being down to 10 men.

“Juventus are certainly a stronger team than we are, but we are motivated and this will be the last game of the present, not the first of the future.

“I can only thank the fans, as they supported us even during the most difficult moments. If Sampdoria achieved safety, it is also thanks to them.”

Rossi arrived as an interim manager, but this week signed a new two-year contract with Samp.
