“It’s a Champions League game, they are all difficult at this level,” the vice-president told JTV.

“We want to do well so we can go as far as possible in the tournament. We’re in a good position and a win would be an important step forward.”

Federico Bernardeschi was expected to again start in the absence of Aaron Ramsey, but instead Uruguay international Bentancur is moved there.

“Bentancur will be a trequartista, he already played very well in that role for the closing stages of the game with Inter. He plays there at international level too, so we’ll see how he does tonight. I am confident, the player is in great shape.

“Juve went looking for this improvement in our style of football, so that we could score more goals. I see a lot of progress from week to week, but we want to do much better.”
