Olympiacos boss Michel and midfielder David Fuster claim the pressure to produce a result lies squarely on the hosts’ shoulders tomorrow night.
Two wins from their opening trio of Champions League fixtures see the visitors head into the encounter with a three-point lead over the Bianconeri and Michel is daring his men to dream of claiming another success at Juventus Stadium tomorrow.
Speaking to the media in Turin, the Spanish tactician began: “We won’t be thinking about Juventus’ home form. It’s a crucial game for them, whereas for us it’s different. We must give it our all and aim for the best possible result.”
Despite admitting Roberto’s late string of saves got Olympiacos off the hook in the first encounter, the Spanish coach insists his side were good value for the win when reassessing the fixture as a whole.
“If you think back to the last 25 minutes of the game, there’s no denying that Roberto was the star man. But everyone played well for the rest of the match against a very strong side. We deserved the victory and we’re proud of beating a great team like Juventus. We’ll be after more of the same tomorrow.”
Joining his coach for the evening press conference was David Fuster, who also believes Olympiacos should enter the game in a positive frame of mind.
The midfielder added: “It’s not a must-win for us, but getting a good result would be very important. We’ve got a three-point advantage and the pressure will predominantly be on them. We know we’re up against a great team and it won’t be an easy task, but we view tomorrow as a great opportunity.”
