“It’ll be impossible to find our rhythm right away because we’ve encountered many problems,” Juric said at a press conference.
“I’ve never experienced a situation like this as a coach. So many players will also be missing tomorrow or some will be on the bench with only a couple of training sessions behind them.”
Verona were flying in Serie A before the coronavirus lockdown, going unbeaten in nine games.
“It’s a strange situation, we’ve had injuries like never before. Clearly, the 70-day break at home did some damage to us.
“Therefore, we have to try to get back to what we were, but I don’t know if we’re able to do that right off the bat.”
