Juventus will start preparing for the return match of the third preliminary round of the Europa League after 48 hours granted by coach Del Neri after the return from Dublin.
Tomorrow’s training session will begin at 16:00hrs and for the team it will represent something new this season. With the exception of the internationals (with the exception of Felipe Melo), who after returning from the World Cup worked in Vinovo between the 19th and 20th July and eventually joined the team in Varese.
It will be the first time for Del Neri coaching the entire squad at the Juventus Center. There will be four days of work before the return match against Shamrock Rovers on Thursday 5th August in Modena, a week after the first leg.
It will be the longest period without a match since the first friendly against the Rappresentativa del Trentino which the team played against in Pinzolo on the 11th July. Since then the schedule was rather busy: against Al Nasr on the 15th July, against Hamburg on July 18th and then after 5 days on the 24th July the friendly match against Lyon in Cosenza, the last match before the one in Dublin on July 29th.
The team played 5 matches in all during July with a more then positive balance: 4 victories (amongst which the one against Shamrock Rovers in the only official match) and a draw, with 15 goals scored, and only 1 conceded from a penalty. It was an intense month to prepare as best the team can for an intense season.
