Juventus are through to the semi-finals of the Viareggio Cup after beating Siena. The match saw the bianconeri constantly taking the initiative.

With Juventus attacking right from the start it was however Siena that opened the score 20 minutes into the match thanks to Larrondo. Juventus, continued to attack and impose their game collecting a large number of corners. The Juventus attack sees its inspiration in young Spaniard Yago who with a number of good runs and a series of dribbles wreaked havoc on the right flank. After a series of Juventus opportunities, the bianconeri equalised two minutes before the break thanks to the youngster who is making himself the prime candidate for the Golden Boy award, that is Ayub Daud.

The second half saw the bianconeri with a fiery start, immediately imposing their play on the match. Three minutes into the half it was once again the Somali talent who put Juventus ahead, scoring his 6th goal in five matches of the tournament. Two minutes later Juventus scored a third, this time thanks to Marrone who headed the ball beyond the Siena goalkeeper and into the back of the net. Juventus continued to attack and had a number of good chances to add to score line with opportunities for Immobile and Yago amongst others. Siena tried to fight back and at the end made the score 3-2 thanks to Giannetti with the bianconeri already in the semi-finals.

Maddaloni’s team will now meet Torino in the semi-finals after the “cousins” beat Reggina following a penalty shoot-out.
