The Juventus squad’s preparations for Sunday’s away trip to Verona have entered the home stretch this afternoon as tactics came to the fore in Vinovo.
Juventus Center may have again been subjected to the driving rain that has hit the Piedmont region all week, but Antonio Conte’s men had no intention of letting that stop them, and in fact stepped up their work towards a tricky fixture against the Gialloblu with a thought to their tactical strategy.
It will be an intriguing battle of wits between Conte and his opposite number Andrea Mandorlini, two bosses who have consistently worked wonders with their respective squads.
Not many have matched Conte’s extraordinary success since his arrival in the Juve dugout, but Mandorlini’s feat of leading a side floundering in Serie C to a current fifth position in Serie A is certainly up there.
Having worked on a way to outfox his Verona adversary today, the Bianconeri manager will take care of the final few details ahead of the 15.00 CET kick-off in another morning session tomorrow.
