0 53

Massimilaino Allegri has revealed that his side will need to put on the hard work against a Sporting side and insists they won’t go all out to defend 1-0 advantage for 90 minutes.

Juventus manager Massimilaino Allegri has stated that they will have to attack Sporting in the home and score more goals in order to reach the last four of the Europa league.

The Italian side have the advantage ahead of their meeting with the Portuguese club but are weary of the danger they possess at home.

Speaking ahead of their clash Allegri said:

“We have to approach the game as if it were a once-off match. We can’t think about the first leg. Sporting are a team that knocked out Arsenal. It’s going to be difficult but at this point it’s normal to face teams of this level.
“It is unthinkable to try defend our 1-0 lead over the 90 minutes. We have to try to score, although there will be times when we will have to defend as a team. We will need to be patient, especially when they’re on the attack because of the support of the home crowd.”

Allegri added that also they will have first choice goalkeeper back in the starting lineup and also says Sandro will feature in the game.

“[Wojciech] Szczesny will be back in the starting line-up, while Alex Sandro will also play from the first minute. Tomorrow I will weigh up who’ll play in attack.

“We are in the Europa League, an important competition.Winning it would give us access to the Champions League and above all it would be a great satisfaction for the work done by the group.”
