    Simone Inzaghi

    Here to win

    "This is a huge game for us. We have worked incredibly hard to get here and we fully deserve our place in the final. On the way, we produced brilliant performances against Genoa, then away at Inter and finally in the derby against Roma. We’re here to win.”

    How to beat Juventus?

    "Obviously on paper you would have to make Juventus firm favourites. As we know, with the right approach, anything can happen in a one-off game like this. It will take a perfect 90 or even 120 minutes for us to lift the trophy but we have prepared as best we can.

    “We played well against them here at the start of the season and our first and only dip in concentration to allow Sami Khedira to score cost us the game. We deserved to lose at Juventus Stadium in the new year so this time around we want to deliver a performance worthy of this football club.

    “Teams don’t win six Scudetto titles in a row by accident and we know how good Juventus are. As an Italian, I’m proud to see Juve in the Champions League final. Both sides are ready to give their all tomorrow night.” 

    Lucas Biglia

    Pre-final feelings

    “The boys are nervous and they know we are in for a difficult encounter with a side that can still win the treble. We have to believe in ourselves and show just how much we want to win the trophy tomorrow night on the field.”



    “Heart, determination, composure… you need everything to come together in a fina. We are in good form and our run through the rounds showed that we have what it takes to be champions.

    “We are the underdogs but if we start the game well, anything can happen.”
