UCL: Juve Coach Allegri Targets Away Goal Vs Atletico

Massimiliano Allegri admits Juventus must score an away goal in Wednesday’s Champions League first leg last-16 tie against Atletico Madrid.

Allegri who led his side to  3-0 win over Frosinone in Friday’s Serie A clash is wary of Atletico, who have reached at least the Champions League quarter-finals in four of the past five seasons.

“The team is in good shape. It is a two-legged challenge against a very physical team,” Allegri said after Friday’s 3-0 win over Frosinone.

“Atletico plays very aggressive football when playing at home. It is a team that has had great results in previous years in Europe.

“It is an open match, we have as much chance to go through as they do.

“The first thing we must do is score a goal in Madrid. Scoring in Madrid will be decisive for our qualification.”
