'Empoli only interested in points'

Empoli boss Aurelio Andreazzoli insists his side are only interested in picking up points against Juventus in Serie A on Saturday.

Empoli won their first game back under Andreazzoli before the international break, and the Coach urged his player to look beyond Cristiano Ronaldo’s absence for the Bianconeri.

“The match against Juventus is the first of 10 matches where we must be focused on reaching our objective of picking up three points,” he said at a Press conference.

“We’re facing one of the best teams in the world. Even without Ronaldo, they have so many options that his absence will be irrelevant.

“In our first meeting, he decided a game that wasn’t easy for them. We always play to win, It’s just a pity that we come back out against Napoli on Wednesday.

“We have to arrange our drawers because right now there’s some clutter. The 3-5-2 may be a starting point, but our game system is a component that’s relative to a match.

“To pick up points we must defend well, but as a team. Tomorrow we’ll miss Silvestre a bit, but we have Veseli, who will do well.”
