After enjoying himself in Italy yesterday, Tobias Gourlay is sticking around to see that everything calms down a bit today

Friday 19:45
(Live on ESPN)

Quite a game in the Coppa Italia yesterday. 2-2 at full time, 4-4 at the end of extra time, Cagliari win 5-4 on penalties.

But the truth is we lost interest at 1-1. Because as soon as Zdenek Zeman's lot equalised, we were paid out.

We're sticking around Italia today, for what promises to be something completely different.

Totting up Fiorentina's home games and Juventus' away matches from the Serie A season to date, it's 11/12 in which both teams have not scored. Between them they have put together nine clean sheets from those matches.

Despite the presence of old Vincenzo Montella on La Viola's bench, Florence's finest have failed to score themselves in 4/6 league outings at the Artemio Franchi. All four of those games finished with Under 2.5 Goals.

To date, Massimiliano Allegri has seen 5/7 Juve away games end the same way. The Old Lady has also kept clean sheets in 5/7, while scoring more than once in only 3/7.
