Serie A royalty Juventus faces off against provincial upstarts Frosinone in a highly anticipated Coppa Italia quarter-final clash at the Allianz Stadium on January 11, 2024, at 8 pm UK time.

The Road to Quarter-Finals

Juventus, the reigning cup champions, are eyeing a domestic double this season. Having triumphed over Atalanta BC in 2022 for their 14th Coppa Italia title, they aim to secure a record-extending 15th win at Stadio Olimpico in May. After a disappointing season last year, they find themselves in a tight Serie A title race and are determined to add more silverware.

Frosinone, on the other hand, fueled by young talents from Juventus, ousted Napoli in the last 16 to set up this quarter-final clash. Despite recent Serie A setbacks, their journey to this stage involved victories over Pisa and Torino, showcasing resilience.

Current Form and Stats

Juventus enters the match on a high, having gone 14 league games unbeaten and conceding just eight goals in their last 15 home matches. Recent victories over Salernitana, both in the league and cup, highlight their formidable form.

Frosinone, despite slipping in Serie A standings, created history by reaching their first Coppa Italia quarter-finals. However, consecutive defeats against Lazio and Monza present a tougher challenge against Juventus, especially considering their winless record in Serie A away games this season.
