Matchwinner Carlos Tevez insists the team is his primary concern after netting twice to sink Swedish side Malmo in this evening’s 2-0 Group A success at Juventus Stadium.
The Argentine scored his first Champions League goals for five years in this evening’s success at Juventus Stadium but sought to play down the significance of that particular jinx.
Speaking after the game, the 30-year-old said: “I wasn’t concerned about my Champions League goal drought. I play for a team and with this one I play every game as if it were the last.”
Tevez ended by warning of the perils of underestimating the opposition, insisting every point counts if the Bianconeri are to navigate their way beyond the group stages of this year’s edition.
“We know we need to win every game. The papers say it’s an easy group, but taking last year’s experience into account we know that’s definitely not the case.
"We didn’t get through last season and it was a disappointment. First we’ll look to overcome that hurdle, then we’ll think about how far we can go."
