Silva looks for ‘right mentality’ against Juve

Adrien Silva says Sampdoria need ‘a spirit of sacrifice’ to beat Juventus and points to the 2-1 win against Inter earlier this month.

The Blucerchiati have picked up nine points in their four last Serie A games and sit 10th in the League and the Portuguese 31-year-old draws inspiration from the win against the Nerazzurri on January 6.

“Another difficult test awaits us against a team that will fight for the Scudetto until the end,” Silva told Tuttosport.

“We managed to beat Inter with the right mentality. That’s to respect the opponent but without feeling inferior.

“We need great team spirit and one of sacrifice and to get a good result against Juventus.”
