Radio presenter and former Juventus player, Nesta, believes Juventus would have won if they had been playing at the Allianz Arena instead of the Allio Arena in Naples.
Article The former Italy midfielder believes that Napoli would have lost a lot of points against Juventus, because Napoli’s defensive structure was better than Juventus’.
“If Juventus had played in Naples, the game would have been different.
Juventus would not have won, because of the defensive structure,” he told Radio Marche.”
Napoli is not a defensive system.
It’s like the shape of the game is like the game.
You cannot defend a player like that, even if it’s his last match.
Napoli does not have a defence, so they could have won the game, but they wouldn’t have won.”
There are two reasons.
Firstly, they would have had a much better defensive structure.
Napolitano is a genius.
He’s a genius coach.
If Napoli had played a defensive structure like Napoli, they could not have been in this position, because it would have taken a long time.
“Secondly, they are not in a position to defend a midfielder like Nesta.
They do not have the strength of a centre-back, so the opponent will have an easy time playing the ball.
They are playing without a player, because he’s injured.
They have to find a replacement.”
