Never letting up and fighting until the job is done.
While such an attitude was the inspiration for the Bianconeri’s dramatic second-half comeback against Bayern Munich in Tuesday night’s dramatic Champions League last 16 first-leg draw at Juventus Stadium, it was also very much the mood of the day in Vinovo this morning as Massimiliano Allegri’s men returned to training.
As ever after an important fixture the night before, there was little time for the champions to reflect on their Champions League efforts today as attentions immediately turned to Sunday’s Derby d’Italia encounter with Inter, the first of two meetings with the Nerazzurri in the coming week or so.
Out on the Juventus Center pitches, with the previous evening’s exertions still burning in their muscles, those that featured prominently on Tuesday night underwent a routine post-match warm down while the remainder of the squad focused on fitness.
Featuring in the latter group and providing the day's good news were Giorgio Chiellini, Alex Sandro and Kwadwo Asamoah, all returning to first-team training after their respective injury layoffs.
The Bianconeri will reconvene at the same time tomorrow morning to get the ball rolling on Sunday’s Serie A preparations in earnest.
From one big game to the next.
