Allegri: Juventus Become Favorites With Win Over Bayern

share on:

Juventus manager Allegri believes going past Bayern will make them favorites to win the UCL.

Juventus were drawn with Bayern Munich in the last 16 of the UCL in Nyon.

And Allegri is certain a win over Bayern is all they need to win the UCL.

“Bayern are one of the best teams in the world,” he said. “Getting past them would make us one of the favourites for the Champions League.

“The game with Bayern is a long way off though. For now, we will focus on the more immediate future.”

Next up for Juve is a Coppa Italia clash with city rivals Torino on Wednesday.

“We haven’t won two successive Coppa Italia trophies since 1959-60 so it’s a feat we are hoping to pull off,” he added.

“Both of tomorrow’s teams are in good shape and it’s a one-off game so it will be very different from a Serie A encounter.”

Allegri is expected to make a raft of changes with striker Paulo Dybala and veteran goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon likely to be left out.

“Paulo could be rested, he has played a lot of games recently. Two from Simone Zaza, Mario Mandzukic and Alvaro Morata will play,” he said.

“Hernanes has taken part in almost all training sessions so we’ll see if he’s fit. Neto and Daniele Rugani will play.

“Juan Cuadrado did well against Fiorentina. If he doesn’t start he’ll be an important option off the bench.”
