MILAN (AP) - Milan vice president Adriano Galliani says his team will be at a disadvantage in its Italian Super Cup match against Juventus in Qatar after having to cancel its flight on Tuesday.

Milan was supposed to fly out to Doha on the same day as Juventus for Friday’s game.

However, its flight at 3 p.m. local time (1400 GMT) was initially postponed by an hour and a half and then, with a further delay expected because the charter plane was still in London with technical problems, Milan decided to fly out the following day.

“We’ve suffered a serious sporting disadvantage,” Galliani said.

“Juventus is already there in the warmth, tomorrow they’ll train with 20 degrees more than there are in Milan, while we will arrive at night and will only be able to do the finishing touches there, the evening before.”
