One of the standout performers on Saturday against Chievo, it was no coincidence that Alex Sandro provided the assist for Federico Bernardeschi's last-gasp match-winner.
The Brazilian was a constant force down Juve’s left side for the whole 90 minutes and understandably enjoyed the taste of three opening day points:
“It’s always important to start the season with a win,” emphasised Alex Sandro. “This was a difficult match and we know that we still have to improve.
“The spirit in this group is exceptional. We work very hard during the week and we always try to give everything out there on the pitch.
“On a personal note, I feel great. I'm happy and I'm convinced that this will be a big year for me and Juventus. Regarding the national team, I am delighted with the call-up.”
