Allegri Beware of Sevilla as Juventus Chase Top Spot

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has Sevilla as a dangerous opposition, but he is confident that the club can get a positive result in Spanish.

Juventus will be making the trip to Sevilla in order to take on the Spanish club in the fifth match day of the Champions League group stages. After having taken only two wins from their opening four games, Juventus qualifying for the knockout stages is far from certain. The team needed a victory against the Spanish club and they need to do so while playing away from home. It is a difficult task, but Allegri reckons that it can be done.

After all, the team are unbeaten in all competitions since the 1-0 defeat against Milan towards the end of October. Juventus seem to have found the form once again and they are extremely difficult to stop in this kind of a form. One aspect that gives Juventus fear is the fact that both teams were involved in a goalless draw in the reverse fixture in September.

Finish on top of group is the main priority for Juventus as it would give them access to a home match in the return leg of the Champions League last 16 game.

Furthermore, there is also a possibility of facing an easy opposition in the knockout stages.”The only result that guarantees our place in the last 16 is a win. I’m confident we can get a positive result.We must win one of our last two group matches to qualify. We want the job done tomorrow.We’re coming up against a side that is yet to concede in the Champions League and is dangerous on the break.We played very well here last season and conceded from one of few attempts on our goal,” said Allegri ahead of the match.
