Chiellini: Juve must not concede

Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini has stressed the importance of his side keeping a clean sheet against Benfica tomorrow.

The Old Lady head into the Europa League semi-final second leg needing to overturn a 2-1 deficit to progress to the final, to be played at their own Juventus Stadium.

“I can’t wait to get out on the pitch,” Chiellini said at the pre-match Press conference. “It will be a magical evening and one that all Juventini, whether they are at the stadium or watching on television, will want to experience.

“It will be absolutely crucial to not concede a goal, because I am convinced that with the attacking threat we have we will manage to score.

“We must also look to limit the number of errors we make compared to the first leg.

“On that occasion we deserved more than we got but we found ourselves on the end of a negative result.

“We have no fear. We are conscious that everything depends on us and tomorrow we have the chance to continue to live this dream of playing in the final here in Turin.

“So we have no fear, but a lot of desire to play, do well and win. That’s it.”
