      The club CEO is confident Juventus have what it takes to progress through to the knockout stages of this season's Champions League

      Giuseppe Marotta says he is satisfied with the outcome of this season’s Champions League group stages draw.

      Juventus were pitted against Atletico Madrid, Olympiacos FC and Malmo FF this evening at Monaco’s Grimaldi Forum and the club CEO is confident a place in the knockout stages represents a realistic target.

      He also believes the recent Champions League experience gained will stand the team in good stead as they prepare to rub shoulders with Europe’s finest for the third year in a row.

      Reacting to the draw, Marotta said: “We're satisfied with the outcome. There are teams like Malmo, who are currently in the middle of their season but will finish it in November, so the outcome of the ties will also depend on when they take place.

      “Having said that, we must be aware  of our club’s history and remember that qualification is certainly attainable. We now have a proven group of players that in recent years was undone by a lack of experience. I think that what happened last year will help us to not repeat the same mistakes again.

      "In Italy we must ensure that we compete for the Scudetto, but in the Champions League there is a considerable gap between ourselves and the  big clubs. We hope to progress as far as possible in Europe and you can be sure that we’ll give our all in every single match, because we are well aware that this is a competition which can be decided by the smallest details."
