Fiorentina keeper Neto admits Viola don’t fear Juventus ahead of Europa League second leg
Fiorentina host Juventus on Thursday in the second leg of their Europa League tie with a slender advantage over the Turin club having achieved an impressive first leg draw last week.
Brazilian keeper Neto played his part in that draw and believes that Viola will go into the match against the formidable Juve with no fear.
Neto told Sky Sports 24 about the incredible atmosphere he expects to play in on Thursday.
Football Italia quoted the Brazilian who said: “The result against Chievo was important. Now we need to concentrate on Juventus and we can play in a calmer fashion.
“When there are games of this type in Florence the atmosphere is incredible, it’s always like that.
“We have no fear, there are two teams of a high level going up against each other.
“They have a lot of champions, but so do we. Buffon is of the highest calibre, it is an honour to play against him.”
Neto will hope to outshine his opposite number midweek and inspire his team to secure a place in the Europa League quarter-finals at the expense of their Serie A rivals.
