Comparison to previous year

Quick question - How does the comparison to previous year match dates up?  For example, would it match Monday 1st May 2017 to Sunday 1st May 2016?  Or would it match to Monday 2nd May 2016?

 

Demand to our business fluctuates day-to-day, so if we were to compared Monday 1st May 2017 to Sunday 1st May 2016 we wouldn't be comparing apples with apples.  If Data Studio doesn't match up by day of week in the previous period, is there a way in which we can do this?

If your default date range is fixed from the Monday 1st May 2017 will me matched with the 1st may 2016, even if the 1st May 2017 is a monday and the 1st may 2016 is a sunday.
