BOBBY Zamora insists he won't rise to the Italian bait like Chelsea's Didier Drogba .

The Blues striker saw red for a clash with Thiago Motta as they crashed out of the Champions League to Inter Milan on Wednesday night.

But Fulham frontman Zamora insists he won't crack under pressure as the Whites attempt to overturn a 3-1 deficit in tomorrow night's Europa League last-16 showdown with Juventus .

He said: "The one thing I know is [Fabio] Cannavaro doesn't want to run the channels. He's a bit older now, and wants to fight, pull and push you.

"Italian defenders are very hands-on, which you saw in the Chelsea v Inter game. The closest thing to playing against an Italian side is against Ricardo Carvalho .

"He's not overly strong or quick, but knows when to foul at the right times. They are very clever at it, it's an art in its own.

"I'm sure they'll be trying to frustrate us, but the gaffer has said to us to keep our head and stay calm."
