With Saturday’s success over Sassuolo now a distant memory, the return of the UEFA Champions League to Juventus Stadium is now just two days away for Massimiliano Allegri’s men.
Having focused on recovery and recuperation yesterday, the champions were able to regroup at full strength in Vinovo today with all eyes trained on Wednesday’s curtain raiser with Europa League winners Sevilla; tactics, positioning and ball work all coming to the fore this morning.
As you might expect, a typically action-packed schedule awaits the Bianconeri tomorrow ahead of their UCL bow. First, the Serie A league leaders will walk through their final preparations on the training ground at 16.15 CEST, the first 15 minutes of which will be open to the media, before coach Allegri and captain Gianluigi Buffon meet the media at around 19.20.
Visiting coach Jorge Sampaoli meanwhile will discuss his side’s chances just under an hour earlier at 18.30 and will complete his own pre-game plans with the Rojiblancos at 19.00 on the Juventus Stadium turf.
As ever, supporters will be spoilt for choice for big match build-up, with our official website Juventus.com and English language Twitter feed* @juventusfcen* following providing full coverage of the action as the day unfolds.
