Old Lady can still sing, says Juve boss

JUVENTUS boss Fabio Capello believes his side can perform a “miracle” and dump Arsenal out of the Champions League tonight in the Stadio Delle Alpi.

“Miracles do happen,” said Capello.

“We are convinced we can do something extraordinary. People think we are dead in this competition - they are mistaken. We can do it, we have the determination to do great things.”

Captain Alessandro Del Piero, who missed the first leg, has failed to recover from a thigh injury and has not been included in Capello’s squad. The Turin giants will also be without suspended trio Jonathan Zebina, Mauro Camoranesi and former Gunners captain Patrick Vieira.

“We are well aware of the errors we made in the first game,” Capello said.

“We have learnt from them and with respect to my players’ indiscipline, I hope it doesn’t happen again.

“Concentration and determination will be crucial. We respect Arsenal and we know they are strong, but so are we.”
