      Sporting CP midfielder Bruno Fernandes and manager Jorge Jesus preview tomorrow night’s Champions League match in Lisbon
      BRUNO FERNANDES

      SAME APPROACH AS TWO WEEKS AGO

      "Tomorrow our approach must be the same as the first match in Turin. We play the same way at home and away and I believe that we will succeed in imposing our game and ultimately get a positive result.

      “We had plenty of fans supporting us in Turin two weeks ago and tomorrow I expect them to come out in force once more. They’re our 12th man and always get right behind us.”

      JORGE JESUS

      JUVE A TOP SIDE, BUT WE BACK OURSELVES

      “It will be great to pit our wits against a top European team like Juventus again. We know how strong they are, but we also believe in our own ability to get a result.

      “Despite losing, our performances against Barcelona and Juve have taught us a lot about our own strengths. Tomorrow we must defend well like in Turin and cause the opposition problems at the other end of the pitch too. I’m backing our chances of doing just that.”

      TEAM NEWS

      “I'm not sure if William Carvalho will be fit tomorrow. His absence would force me to find alternative solutions in midfield.

      “Likewise, we’ll have to see about Jeremy Mathieu’s chances of playing tomorrow.

      “Meanwhile at right-back, Stefan Ristovski has a great chance to come in for Cristiano Piccini and prove his credentials.”
