Juventus, Allegri: “Madrid are favourites”

Juventus, Allegri: “Madrid are favourites”

Juventus Manager Massimiliano Allegri is looking forward to the upcoming Champions League Quarter-Final against Real Madrid.

The Bianconeri can avenge last season’s Champions League Final defeat when they take on Los Blancos next month. Le Zebre were defeated 4-1 in the 2017 Final.

Allegri spoke about the match in a press conference today.

“These will be two wonderful football matches, if we play well and we’re lucky, we’ll go through. If we don’t, we’ll go home. We must be proud of being among Europe’s last eight.

“We’re working to play in games like these, we beat Barcelona in the quarter-finals last season so maybe we’ll win this time out.

“I said three days ago, they’re favourites for the Champions League. If we beat them, we’ll be twice as happy.

“The team are growing physically and mentally. We’re growing in the final parts of games, we’re understanding how to attack and defend better, and that’ll be important for the end of the season.

“We must prepare ourselves better, but we’ll talk about it after Easter”.
