Objective: seal qualification. This was the underlying message in today’s press conference between Coach Pirlo and Szczesny, who both spoke to the media about tomorrow’s Champions League clash at Allianz Stadium.
Here’s what Andrea Pirlo had to say:
"We have to approach the match in the best way possible. Losses of concentration are not allowed. We want to secure qualification as soon as we can. We have some absences in defence. The others are available and those in the best shape will be on the field. Dybala is finding his form, it takes time.
Tomorrow, we'll see whether or not he plays from the first minute. Tomorrow will be a decisive match. The away game was good, but tomorrow only the present will count. We are thinking about different solutions in the attack. We will try to play Dybala, Cristiano and Alvaro Morata all together, but it takes time.
Sealing qualification tomorrow would be very important, because it would allow breathing space to those who have played the most at the start of the season. Bernardeschi did well on Saturday. He needs to find continuity and a feeling with the pitch."
