Three Verona players that Juventus must look out for on Thursday

This mid-week, Juventus will try to make the fifth on the trot when they travel to play Hellas Verona at the Marcantonio Bentegodi Stadium.

Although the Bianconeri were unceremoniously eliminated from the Champions League, they have been enjoying a domestic rival that started with a win over Torino. His most recent victim has been Inter in the famous Derby d’Italia.

But despite being in deep crisis, the hosts can still derail the Elder’s momentum if taken lightly.

So let’s take a look at three Verona players that Juventus must keep a close eye on during Thursday’s fixture.

Koray Gunter (Center Back)

The German might be one of the most underrated defenders in Serie A. Last season, he held his own against Dusan Vlahovic, and he always enjoys a one-on-one battle with his foe.

The former Dortmund player will be looking to unsettle Arek Milik from the first whistle to the end.

Adrien Temeze (Central Midfielder)

The former Atalanta man possesses all the traits he would like to see in a midfielder. He has an eye for the pass and works hard for the team.

While he has yet to show his best football this season, like the vast majority of his team-mates, the Cameroon international is hoping to make an impact against Manuel Locatelli and company.

Thomas Henry (forward)

Although he is far from the most famous French striker with the surname Henry, the 28-year-old is the kind of objective man who endears himself to every manager, as evidenced by the fact that he has so far started every the Serie A matches: either under the direction of Gabriele Cioffi or his successor Salvatore Bocchetti.

The former Venezia man has only found the back of the net twice this term, but his ability to hold the ball and bring team-mates into the game could be his most dangerous weapon.
