Juventus go into Wednesday’s Champions League match against Lyon knowing that victory would put them in the last-16 draw in December while also keeping them in pole position to qualify as Group H winners.
Well aware of the opportunities tomorrow to make serious headway towards wrapping up the season’s first two major objectives, here is what Massimiliano Allegri had to say in today’s press conference.
‘Tough’ test awaits
“We can expect a difficult game against Lyon, who secured a fine away win at the weekend against Toulouse and played very well especially in defence.
“Tomorrow’s match for us is crucial because victory would allow us to wrap up qualification to the knockout stages and take an important step towards finishing first in the group.”
