Pioli has Europa League faith in Palermo

Stefano Pioli has the utmost confidence Palermo are “mentally and physically prepared” to beat Thun in tomorrow’s Europa League qualifier.

The Rosanero’s participation in this competition is in doubt after their shock 2-2 home draw in the first leg.

They must either win in Switzerland on Thursday evening or draw by scoring at least two goals in order to progress to the next preliminary round.

“We are mentally and physically prepared for this challenge,” said Coach Pioli on the official Palermo website.

“We’ll step on to the field in order to win and bring home the qualification.

“It is not going to be a simple game, but the entire squad is firmly convinced we can overcome this obstacle.”
