Carlo Nicolini says playing Thursday and Sunday is an advantage for Juventus

The normal perception is that Europa League football affects clubs campaigning for domestic titles because they have to play on Thursday and Sunday.

With that in mind, Juve’s bid to win the league this season could be derailed by their relegation to the competition.

Several clubs in the competition continue to demonstrate it and it is not the ideal situation in which they want to be.

The bianconeri have no choice but to play it now and they may want to win it.

Although some fans will prefer to focus on the league due to the perception that it could prevent them from winning Serie A.

However, Carlo Nicolini, manager of Shakhtar Donetsk, insists that he gives them an advantage every weekend.

He said through Tuttomercatoweb:

“It’s just an Italian problem because excuses are always being made. Juventus will play on Sunday and always knowing the result of the others. Therefore, it will be an advantage. The rest are sterile polemics that make no sense.

“It is true, Juve will play more games in EL than the other Italians who could leave before. but only those who do not know how to manage the two commitments complain. See Sarri, who did it at Napoli and again at Lazio. If he doesn’t like it, he can leave. “

Juve FC says

Winning the Europa League would be great, but that competition is tough and could limit our chances of doing things in the league.

However, while we compete in it, we must give our best to achieve results there and make sure that we leave knowing that we did our best.
