Bonucci expecting ‘battle’

Juventus’ Leonardo Bonucci is expecting a battle when his side face Lyon in Thursday’s Europa League quarter-final second leg.

The Old Lady hold a 1-0 lead from the first leg in France but the Azzurri international says the team must continue to show a winning mentality.

“Our win against Livorno shows that when we go out onto the pitch we always want to win,” Bonucci wrote on his official website.

“My aim, and I hope it’s my teammates’ aim too, is to increase our advantage over Roma.

“A winning team needs to keep looking forward and after a victory they repeat the job.

“In Udine we have another final, a win we need to win and a match with a thousand motivations.

“Now we need to think about Thursday against Lyon, we are expecting another battle.

“The match against Lyon is the first of four cup finals. At Juventus Stadium I only know one result. Winning!”
