“I don’t believe we can consider their Champions League midweek game to be an advantage for us,” said the coach in his press conference.
“After Juventus, they are the squad with the most strength in depth and experience. They have the utmost quality in their ranks and we need an extraordinary performance, playing to the death for points that would be of vital importance to us.
“We’ve trained hard all week, hoping to get the best out of our lads. Francesco Vicari has recovered and I hope he can play the full match. Gabriel Strefezza is in the squad, but I’ll decide who starts tomorrow.
“With a midweek round coming up, there will be room for everyone.”
