      Strategy and tactics form the basis of Juve's penultimate workout ahead of tomorrow afternoon’s departure for Spain. Massimiliano Allegri and Gigi Buffon to meet the media in Madrid at 18.45 CET

      Juventus returned to Vinovo this afternoon to continue their preparations for Wednesday night’s intriguing Champions League meeting with Atletico Madrid at the Vicente Calderon.

      Despite finding themselves playing catch-up in Group A following an opening day defeat to Olympiacos, Diego Simeone’s reigning champions enter the game full of confidence after bouncing back strongly with two wins from their last two La Liga games, the latest of which a convincing 4-0 demolition of in-form Sevilla on Saturday night.

      Massimiliano Allegri’s men will therefore be on red alert during what is expected to be a finely poised tactical battle between the two European heavyweights, with strategy one of the main aspects worked on during this afternoon’s session at Juventus Center.

      After spending yesterday in separate groups, Allegri reunited his charges for a detailed training ground briefing in which he guided the team through the precise movements to be deployed when they cross the white line in the Spanish capital.

      Tomorrow will see the Bianconeri conduct their final preparations at the club’s Vinovo training complex ahead of boarding an afternoon flight bound for Madrid’s Barajas airport.

      The session, open to the media for the first 15 minutes, is scheduled to get underway at 11.00 CET, while the traditional pre-match press conference, to be conducted by Allegri and Gigi Buffon, will be held at the Vicente Calderon from 18.45 onwards.
