UEFA Champions League


Massimiliano Allegri held a news conference on Tuesday ahead of Juventus' Champions League Matchday 4 fixture against Manchester United.

We're doing well at the moment but you don't win any silverware at this stage of the season. Tomorrow we have the chance to reach our first target for the season by qualifying for the next round of the Champions League, then we'll be able to focus on Serie A. It's important to try and get to March in very good shape".

Allegri spoke also about the line-up: "Mandzukic's ankle is ok and he's available. I didn't name him as a sub at the weekend because he would have had to climb up the steps... He's an extremely important player for us. The players who aren't available are Bernardeschi, Douglas Costa and Kean, as well as Emre Can, who we hope to have back with us as soon as possible. We might go with Cuadrado, Dybala and Ronaldo tomorrow, but I still have to make a decision on that. I also have to think about whether to rest any players like Matuidi, since Khedira is in good shape and Bentancur is young and recovers quickly".
