Del Piero: 'Juventus will win Champions'

Alessandro Del Piero believes Juventus “will win the Champions League sooner or later with Cristiano Ronaldo. I was surprised to see him sign, but not that surprised.”

The Bianconeri will face Ajax in the quarter-finals after overturning a 2-0 deficit to beat Atletico Madrid 3-2 on aggregate with a Cristiano Ronaldo hat-trick.

“It was a huge achievement with Atletico, but those who already know this club were not surprised,” Del Piero told Marca.

Juventus have set their sights on Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane, claim reports in Spain and France.

The centre-back turns 26 next month and is under contract until June 2022.

Di Biagio: 'Italy project paying off'

Italy Under-21 Coach Gigi Di Biagio insists the influx of young talent like Moise Kean and Nicolò Barella “came from the project we started eight years ago.”

Perin injured by bottle?

Mattia Perin reportedly injured his ankle on international duty after a curious incident with a water bottle.

The Juventus goalkeeper was ruled out of the Italy squad for the 2-0 victory over Finland and remains in doubt to face Liechtenstein on Tuesday.

According to Sportmediaset, Perin sprained his ankle because he accidentally trod on a water bottle that had been left on the training ground.

It was not a serious incident, and he could well be on the bench for Tuesday’s second Euro 2020 qualifier in Parma.

Dybala invites 'hero' to Juve game

Juventus star Paulo Dybala invited “hero” Rami Shehata to a match after the 13-year-old’s actions saved a bus full of his school friends.

The school bus was hijacked by the driver, who got teachers to tie them up and then set fire to the vehicle in Milan this week.

Although the driver had confiscated all their mobile phones, 13-year-old Rami – the son of Egyptian parents – hid his phone and called for help while pretending to pray out loud.

All the kids were rescued by authorities and the driver arrested.

Sheva sees Milan and Juve success

Ukraine Coach Andriy Shevchenko discussed Milan’s revival, Krzysztof Piatek comparisons and why Juventus “can triumph in the Champions League.”

The former Rossoneri hitman spoke to Tuttosport about his new role after a 0-0 draw away to Portugal in Euro 2020 qualifying.

“The greatest difficulty I have is getting people to realise I am now a Coach and no longer a player,” said Sheva.

Kean enters Azzurri history books

Moise Kean has become the second-youngest player ever to score for Italy, aged 19 years and 23 days, but the 1958 record holds.

Juventus striker Kean found the back of the net in the 2-0 Euro 2020 qualifier against Finland on Saturday evening.

He only turned 19 last month and therefore put himself in the record books as the second-youngest Azzurri scorer.

Mancini: 'Kean-Balotelli possible'

Roberto Mancini said Moise Kean and Mario Balotelli “could certainly play together” or use the Juventus teenager as a centre-forward.

The 19-year-old was on target in Saturday’s 2-0 victory over Finland, his first senior Italy start, playing as part of a trident attack with Ciro Immobile and Federico Bernardeschi.

Although Immobile did provide the assist for Kean, the Lazio striker has fired blanks in his last 10 Azzurri caps.
