Juventus are not Champions League favourites. ; Allegri


Italian champions juventus fc head coach Max allegri insists that juventus are not the champions league favorite despite having Cristiano Ronaldo on their side who had won the prestigious competition for the last 3 years

Juventus won 4 of the 5 games last month. The 1-0 win over Milan saw Bianconeri lift their 8th Supercoppa Italiana trophy but .In Coppa Italia, Allegri’s side eliminate Bologna but were dumped out by Atalanta in quarter-finals. And  Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri believes Giorgio Chiellini’s injury is nothing serious after the defender was forced to be withdrawn against Atalanta on Wednesday.Chiellini came off after 25 minutes of Juve’s shock defeat in the Coppa Italia with the score then tied at 0-0.The centre-back was replaced by Joao Cancelo,and Bonucci is facing a month out with an ankle injury, potentially ruling him out of Juve’s Champions League last-16 tie with Atletico Madrid.  Max allegri said


“It’s not written anywhere that we’re super-favourites for the Champions League. That would be madness.“By doing that, you don’t experience the competition as it should be experienced, that is as an objective to bring home, if we play well and are lucky.Atletico are on Juventus’ level because they’ve played in Finals too. If we’re knocked out then we’ll accept the criticism

Juventus will play against sassaulo in Seriae A on Sunday and Atletico madrid on champions league round of 16
