Juventus, Europa League central for Allegri

For Juventus, the path to the Europa League becomes even more crucial for the club’s European ambitions, following the premature elimination from the Champions League in the group with Benfica, PSG and Maccabi Haifa and the fifteen-point penalty for the capital gains case. On the eve of the match worth the round of 16 against Nantes, coach Massimiliano Allegri spoke in the usual pre-match press conference.

“I have not yet decided the lineup for tomorrow because we had a match a few days ago against Spezia. It’s a double match and must be approached with the utmost attention. We must try to go all the way and try to win the cup, as it would represent a direct passage to next season’s Champions League,” the Bianconeri coach began as reported by “Sky.”

“In the last 10 games they have lost only to Marseille and have totaled six clean sheets since late December. It is a team of quality and in addition a group that was reinforced with three players in January. They are used to playing in Europe, but we have to pass the round and try to go all the way,” the former Milan coach concluded about the French side.
