Nedved: 'Draw could've been worse'

Pavel Nedved admits the draw “could’ve been worse” for Juventus as they prepare to face Olympique Lyonnais in the last 16 of the Champions League.

The Vice-President was present in Nyon for the draw, which saw the Bianconeri pick up Ligue 1 side Lyon in the next stage of the tournament.

“It could’ve been worse,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

“We can’t complain about Lyon, we can be happy, even if you always have to be careful in the Champions League.

“It doesn’t matter who the opponents are, but rather the form we are in at that moment.”

Nedved then assured Juve were aiming to go all the way in the Champions League but also that it was not an "obsession" for them.

“It doesn’t have to be an obsession. For us, it’s a concrete objective, we feel at the same height of other teams who are aiming to win this cup.”
