‘Juve are tired’

Former Juventus player Nicola Amoruso believes the Old Lady are showing signs of tiredness as the run in to the end of the season approaches.

Antonio Conte’s side laboured to a 1-0 win over struggling Catania but on Wednesday face a Parma team unbeaten in 17 league matches.

“There is tiredness,” Amoruso said to Tuttojuve.com. “But the Scudetto is already more or less won, even though Conte will probably want a record points total.

“It’s normal for there to be a slight lull after an intense championship race, but regardless of that the wins are still coming.

“That is an important sign.

“There will definitely be rotation against Parma, because a few days later there is another match with Napoli.

“I think it’s right at the moment to give time to players who have played less because it gives them a chance to show what they can do.

“You could see against Catania that everyone who came in did well.

“That is because Conte always manages to prepare well for matches.

Amoruso was then asked about the Bianconeri’s opposition on Wednesday, who he also played for.

“They are certainly very capable,” he responded. “Every year they manage to put together interesting teams.

“This year they have done particularly well, but even when I was there there was a great vibe with Guidolin as Coach.

“At Parma there is an environment that allows you to work without feeling too much pressure.”
