“It is terrible news for Italian football,” said Petkovic. “They will be the favourites in the Europa League and having the Final in Turin will add further motivation. That’s the great thing about the Europa League, as from January onwards you get better teams who raise the level of the competition.
“That is why it is important to win tomorrow so we don’t have to face those sides straight away.”
