Vasilyev: ‘Juventus a tough opponent’

Monaco President Vadim Vasilyev calls Juventus “a tough opponent” but “we’re stronger than two years ago”.

The Bianconeri knocked the Ligue 1 side out of the Champions League in 2015, and the pair were today drawn together in the semi-final of this year’s tournament.

“They’re a tough opponent, with a different style of play [to ours],” Vasilyev told BeIn Sports.

“It will be a rematch, two years ago Juventus eliminated us in the quarter-finals. They’re stronger than two years ago, but we’re stronger too.

“It will be a nice match.

“Every opponent is difficult to face at this stage of the competition, the atmosphere at Stade Louis II was incredible in the last game, I call on all supporters to be there like in the return.”
