    Coppa Italia 2007/2008

    The Coppa Italia tournament, traditionally reviled by the Italian public and often used by the top teams as a kind of training ground for talented youngsters, has been revamped by the Italian FA to try and recapture the public's attention after poor attendances and a limited TV audience.

    No Serie C sides will be involved, so 42 teams will be participating, 20 from Serie A and 22 from Serie B. The first three rounds and the Final will be single-legged ties, while the rest will be two-legged encounters as usual.

    Napoli and Genoa, who finished second and third respectively in Serie B last season, will play in the first round. Juventus meanwhile move straight into the third round.

    In the third round Serie A sides who finished between 9th and 17th will enter the competition. The already known clashes are Juventus-Parma and Cagliari-Siena, which are both programmed for 29 August.

    Cup holders Roma will enter the fray in the fourth round along with the teams who finished within the first 7 places in Serie A last year.

    The opening round will see relegated sides Ascoli and Chievo face newly promoted Serie B sides Ravenna and Avellino respectively.

    The Final is scheduled for May 24 2008 with the venue yet to be decided.

    First Round

    Rimini Frosinone
    Treviso - Lecce
    Messina Vicenza
    Bari Albinoleffe
    Bologna Modena
    Triestina Mantova
    Piacenza Spezia
    Ravenna Chievo
    Genoa Grosseto
    Napoli - Cesena
    Avellino Ascoli
    Napoli Cesena
    Pisa - Brescia



    The first round clashes are scheduled for 15 August.

    A two legged final is such a retarded thing. I was really hoping they would change it, guess not.

    No harm to the Italian authorities but the only way to make the Coppa Italia in the remotest bit exciting is to allow serie c1 and c2 sides back into the draw. Make the entire competition one-leg affairs, a la the FA Cup in England (which only allows for 1 possible replay - penalties at the end of the replay to decide) and therefore create the 'possibility', however remote, of the likes of Inter or Milan getting beaten at places like Cesena or Juve Stabia in a one-off match.

    Agreed. The smaller teams just don't have the depth to play two-legs and compete against the bigger teams. With one-leg, at least they have a chance to field their best squad and possibly cause an upset.

    I don't think the FIGC would want to copy the English system maybe out of pride.

    I'm falling in love with Rosina. Just look at his goal and that chi near the end of the clip. Magical.

    lol love the chip in the box. Takes alot of confidence to do that kind of thing. Would've been sick if he actually scored because the keeper was frozen solid.

    He's turning into a star. Azzurri material definitely.

    Finally a year of televised copa italia action. Hopefully goltv will show some good games, and it gives me a chance to see some coppa games on tv instead of streams. Grande goltv they better show ever inter game, although i dont think they mention inter in their commercial.
