The teams are out for our big clash with Porto this evening, with Juventus hoping to continue their impressive Champions League form thus far.
We closed out the group stages with an emphatic 3-0 win at the Nou Camp to steal top spot from Barcelona at the last opportunity, and that should have sent a message out to anyone still doubting our credentials.
This Juve team has all the talent, and the strength to overcome any of Europe’s best teams, and I’m seeing chinks in the armour of all of the main competition.
“We’re facing a tough team who know how to defend well and counter, it will be a difficult match. We have to forget what we did in the group stage, now we’re starting again and there’s no room for error.”
The Swede has played just 4 Champions League matches this season, but he is one player that Andrea Pirlo trusts.
The 20-year-old played 19 minutes in Juve’s 1-0 loss to Napoli at the weekend, but his manager thinks he can do a job against the Portuguese side from the start.
These are tricky terms and while both parties continue to negotiate, it reports that RB Leipzig has a serious interest in his signature.
The Germans are good at developing players and that should worry Juve because he can be convinced by their track record.
