Sannino prepares Juve tricks

Giuseppe Sannino has some tricks up his sleeve to block Juventus on Wednesday, just days after Chievo beat Udinese.

The Flying Donkeys host the Scudetto holders at 19.45 UK time (18.45 GMT).

“It was a tough victory against Udinese, but now we have to focus on the next game with an extremely strong side,” Coach Sannino told the club website.

“All the players who step on to the field give their all, that is what I ask of them, but we can always improve.”

It’s reported Chievo will adjust their tactics from a 4-4-2 to a 5-3-2 to counter the Juventus midfield.

After seeing the effect Jorginho had when man-marking Andrea Pirlo on Sunday for Hellas Verona, he could give striker Alberto Paloschi the job of tracking the Italy legend.

“Sergio Pellissier and Luca Rigoni have a lot of experience and can set the example for the other players. Sergio in particular can let them know what it means to wear this jersey. Rigoni also could’ve had a more ‘important’ career elsewhere.

“The fans have always supported us and we thank them. This year Serie A is very difficult, but we will try to do our best.”
