Solbakken: 'Pressure on Juve'

Copenhagen manager Stale Solbakken warns “the pressure is on Juventus and that might work in our favour.”

The Danes are still in the running for qualification from Champions League Group B, as they are level second with Galatasaray on four points and ahead of Juventus on three.

They play at the Juventus Stadium on Wednesday at 19.45 GMT and it’s a must-win for the Bianconeri.

“We want to have a go at it. The pressure is on Juventus tomorrow and perhaps that might work in our favour,” said Solbakken in today’s Turin Press conference.

“We have the greatest respect for Juve. They were the best side against Real Madrid and Galatasaray and have been unlucky in the Champions League so far. They have an extremely strong midfield and are now back at the top of Serie A.”

When these sides last met in Denmark, it ended 1-1 with Copenhagen finding the net first.

“We weren’t afraid of crosses in the first leg, but now Juve have another alternative in Fernando Llorente, who is a threat in the box.

“We’ll give it our best shot, try to be brave and make a real fight of it. Anything can happen over the course of 90 minutes.”
