Leonardo Bonucci says Juventus’ unity will be key as they aim to overhaul Atletico Madrid in the Champions League on Tuesday.
The Bianconeri brushed Udinese aside 4-1 on Friday in a game that allowed Massimiliano Allegri to rest some of his stars, with Bonucci one of those to start from the bench.
Allegri is likely to recall his skipper for the game as the Bianconeri look to overhaul Atleti having lost 2-0 in Madrid last month.
Juve will need to summon all of their energy to beat what remains a gritty Los Colchoneros outfit under Diego Simeone and they have extra motivation this season with the Metropolitano hosting June’s final.
The Champions League has eluded Bonucci and his colleagues in recent seasons despite making two finals and, using a post on Instagram, he highlighted the confidence his side can take from their collective strength.
He posted: “The strength of a team is the union, all the pieces have the same importance. This was the demonstration this evening.
For Tuesday we will need everyone, both on and off the court, for THE GAME. Always believe in it.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
