Fabio Grosso is expecting “a great game” tonight in the Europa League quarter-final between Juventus and Lyon.
The 2006 World Cup winner played for both clubs in his career and is now working as the Primavera youth team Coach in Turin.
“Juventus have many strengths, are competitive and full of talent,” Grosso told the Corriere dello Sport.
“You can see their capabilities by how many points they have put together in Serie A this season and the gap with the other sides.
“I know the Bianconeri want to go all the way in the Europa League. It is going to be a great game this evening.”
The first leg kicks off at the Stade de Gerland at 20.05 UK time (19.05 GMT).
“Olympique Lyon are always part of my heart. I still have many friends in Lyon and very special memories of my two years in France.”
