Rudi Garcia: Roma wants revenge on Juventus

Roma boss Rudi Garcia thinks his players can exact revenge on Juventus on Tuesday after suffering a 3-0 defeat in the opening game of 2014.

The Giallorossi could have gone within two points of the Bianconeri at the top of Serie A if they had won in Turin, but they were reduced to nine men and saw their Scudetto charge severely damaged earlier in January when they were defeated.

Garcia is determined that his team will not suffer the same fate in Tuesday's Coppa Italia quarterfinal as it looks to advance to the last four with a win at the Stadio Olimpico.

"I'd like to win against Juventus because it is a game where the winner goes through to the semifinals," the former Lille boss told Rai Sport. "At the moment we are focused on this competition, it will be a good game to play. We need to ensure that the match goes in our favor this time. The venue of the game can change everything. It is difficult to play at their stadium, but this time it is at the Stadio Olimpico.

"Their team know how to do everything. Juve do not envy any other team. They know that they have a good squad that can play together. They have won two league titles and this year - with the arrival of two strong strikers in Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente - the team's even stronger."

The winner of the Coppa Italia last eight clash will face Lazio or Napoli in the last four.
