Will that be home or away game?

We'll be at home regardless of who we play.

Would be possible away game for us from Slovenia if we got Cittadella.

In Coppa Italia First round Lazio will play against Serie B side Cittadella, who won away at SPAL this afternoon, 0:2. Match is scheduled for December 13th, but should be postponed one day later, given that Lazio play against Torino on Monday, 11th.

Yep, 1/8 final against Cittadella and at Olimpico.

Damn lucky Inter get ot face Serie C side Pordenone who surprisingly eliminated Cagliari.

The match has already been moved to December 14th.

Very good for us to meet a Serie B side so we're not forced to play as many starters as we'd have to do against SPAL.

Watching draw for final rounds and (again) thinking how reaching Coppa final - if not easy - is definitely well within reach and is something should be serious point of discussion in club around New Year and with making plans regarding second part of season.

Yes good point, the Coppa should become important.

Seems like we'd have to beat Cittadella first, then Fiorentina or Sampdoria and then Milan, Inter or maybe Chievo to reacht he final.

So we are avoiding Napoli, Merda & Juve untill the final so it's defenitly worth to keep the Coppa in mind.

Let's see if we beat Cittadella first. If we play a reserve team against them, they'll be in with a shot.

Yeah, remember some seasons ago Hernanes scored the winning goal in stoppage time against Hellas, before they promoted to Serie A. Serie B teams can surprise, but our bench should be motivated and ready for this challenge.

Expecting Luis Alberto to play CM (Evesto  :beer: ) in this match

Inzaghi showed last season that he would happily go into a Coppa tie without playing any regular starters and the last time we won the Coppa, we needed Ciani in the 95th minute and a penalty shootout to defeat a Serie B-bound Siena.

I could see us treating Cittadella more as a friendly than anything else with Crecco, Mauricio etc. out there and maybe even the Portuguese kids. And while Cittadella are an unfamiliar name, they made the Serie B play-offs last season and they are in contention again and they'd really push us if we sent out our squad members with the wrong mentality.

I think if and when we win this game, we worry about the Coppa as a competition by re-evaluating our objectives over the winter break. Not before.
