Allegri: Monaco nothing to lose

Juventus boss Max Allegri has warned that his side “still have to quality for the final” and Monaco “have nothing to lose” on Tuesday.

Juve lead Monaco 2-0 and on away goals in their Champions League semi-final, but Allegri made it clear the Bianconeri would play to win the second leg as the principality outfit were capable of causing “great difficulties”.

“Tomorrow we’re playing against Monaco and we still have to qualify for the final,” the Coach said at a Press conference.

“We have to win in order to get to Cardiff. Monaco have nothing to lose, they have players that can cause great difficulties.

“Dani Alves? He’s in a good run of form, like the rest of the team. After his injury, we found an important player that brings us experience.

“Tomorrow’s choices? I still have to decide whether to play Barzagli or Cuadrado.

“Marchisio can be a great gamechanger, like Pjanic was on Saturday.

“What must Juve do tomorrow? Play an aggressive game, play well technically and even better than we did in Monaco, where we were often wrong, with more patience.

“Still, we’re in a beautiful spell. We’re in full swing.

“We still have to win the Scudetto, so we’ll think about getting to the final in Cardiff first and then Roma.

“The point against Torino? It was crucial not to drop points on Saturday. We won 33 times in a row at home, and sooner or later it had to stop.

“Games are there to be won, but when you can’t, it’s important not to lose them.

“What mustn’t be done tomorrow? We mustn’t worry about winning by force, but at the same time we have to play the match as if it was a dry one.

“We have to face it with that mentality.”
