      The Bianconeri full-back has been previewing Wednesday’s Super Cup against AC Milan: “It’s a one-off game and won’t be easy”

      Juventus are preparing to depart for Jeddah where they face their second all-or-nothing cup tie in the space of five days and the chance to claim their first piece of silverware this season. 

      “It’s a final, a one-off game so different from the others,” Alex Sandro explained. “We’re not quite at 100% yet following the break so we need to be very careful and fully focused in order to play well.”

      “They’ve got loads of top-quality players like Gonzalo Higuain, who we know well - we're aware how important he can be. There’s also Lucas Paqueta, who I know. He’s got great technique and sees things before everyone else."

      NEXT STOP JEDDAH

      “I’ve been to Saudi Arabia with my national team, but it will be a new and interesting experience for us. In any case, we’re ready to play anywhere.”

      CHAMPIONS LEAGUE REMAINS AN OBJECTIVE

      “We want to win the Champions League,” the full-back declared to conclude his interview. “I think we’re among the favourites alongside teams like Real Madrid, Barcelona and PSG, but there are so many top-class sides - like Atletico Madrid, who we’ve got in the Round of 16. It’s always tough to play against them but we have to do our job.”
