UCL/ JUVENTUS - Allegri: "I chose Khedira and Marchisio in the midfield against LYON"

02.11.2016 17.44 by Chiara Biondini  read 3169

Juventus' coach Massimiliano Allegri has spoken yesterday in the press conference about the crucial Champions League clash with Lyon.

“We can expect a difficult game against Lyon, who secured a fine away win at the weekend against Toulouse and played very well especially in defence. Tomorrow’s match for us is crucial because victory would allow us to wrap up qualification to the knockout stages and take an important step towards finishing first in the group.”

“Marchisio will play . I rested him for the first 70 minutes or so on Saturday after coming back to the fold in an intense encounter last Wednesday against Sampdoria. He’s certainly brought experience to the midfield. In the last two years he’s really felt at home in that holding role and improved a lot, but he still has room for further growth and development".

“Sami Khedira will partner Marchisio in the middle, but you’ll have to wait and see about the third midfielder tomorrow night. Giorgio Chiellini aside, all of our defenders are available and fully fit. Patrice Evra is ready again after recovering from a knock last week against Samp and may well feature tomorrow. It’s normal that Juventus needs to keep improving as we’re only at the start of the season. Our objective, as always, is to be going strong in all three competitions by March".
