Del Piero: We are ready for Milan

19 March 2012 13:12

Juventus veteran Alessandro Del Piero is looking forward to taking on AC Milan in the second leg of their Coppa Italia semi-final.

The Turin giants defend a 2-1 lead from the first leg in Milan, and Del Piero feels Juventus are ready for Milan following their impressive 5-0 away win over Fiorentina on Saturday.

"We will play the return of the semi-final of the Coppa on Tuesday, and it will be a tough match. It is important to stick together in order to achieve our goal of making it to the final," Del Piero told Tuttosport.

"We really needed this weekend's win over Fiorentina. It's the perfect preparation for the match versus Milan, and a real confidence boost."

The 37-year-old, who is expected to feature from the start on Tuesday, went on to voice his support for Barcelona defender Eric Abidal and Bolton Wanderers midfielder Fabrice Muamba.

"My thoughts are with Muamba and Abidal," Del Piero said.

"It's impossible not to be upset with what has happened. You can't think of a football pitch as a place where people suffer like this."

"We are all supporting Fabrice, and I'm confident that Eric will win this battle, too."

Abidal is due to undergo a liver transplant in the coming weeks, while Muamba is in hospital in critical condition following his cardiac arrest during Bolton's FA Cup game against Tottenham.
