Corini: Juve are extraordinary

Chievo boss Eugenio Corini has admitted that his side are up against ‘an extraordinary opponent’ when they host Juventus tomorrow.

The Flying Donkeys get their campaign off to the toughest possible start on Saturday afternoon when they play the current champions.

And despite the obvious differences in class, the Coach has insisted that his men will play to win.

“We face an extraordinary opponent,” he told a Press conference. “Who last year ran away with the League despite having to fend off a team as strong as Roma.

“They have a new Coach, but the structure of their team is the same – and they’ve got even stronger with the likes of Evra, Morata and Romulo coming in.

“My feeling is that Juventus will play with a back four, but we’ll be ready for whatever formation they put out.

“We won’t change the way we approach the match. The club have done a great job recruiting players over the summer, but now we have to prove what a good team we are.

“If we have the full support of the fans, then I think we could cause an upset.”
