Massimiliano Allegri says his men will be taking each Champions League game as it comes in their bid to reach the competition’s knockout stages for a second successive year. Speaking to the media in Germany, he began:
“When you participate in the Champions League the big aim is always to reach the last hurdle. Now we’ll take things one step at a time, focusing on our current goal of reaching the knockout stages, which is no easy task given that there are still three games remaining.”
“Borussia have won six league matches on the bounce, one in the domestic cup and they drew against us. Tomorrow we’ll need to be on our game from a technical standpoint and deny them space in which to hit us on the counter".
“Football’s a simple game: you need to play well, make as few errors as possible and look to get the best out of those who cross the white line.”
