Nicola: Juve will be difficult challenge

Livorno boss Davide Nicola has conceded that facing Juventus this weekend will be a ‘difficult challenge’.

The promoted side host the Bianconeri on Sunday looking for the three points that could take them up to 10th in the table.

But the Coach has admitted that getting three points against Antonio Conte’s side will be a tough ask.

“We’re going to be facing a team that has a precise idea of what their identity is,” he told Rai2.

“They play at a club where the only priority is to win – so it’s going to be a difficult challenge for us.

“We’re going to be playing a side that go out with a frightening intensity, but we hope what we’ve got will be sufficient.

“Conte, as a Coach, is absolutely excellent. We all want to be at the same level as him.”
