Massimiliano Allegri: Olympiakos game pivotal for group qualification


Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri says a win is a must against Group A leaders Olympiakos.

The Bianconeri lost two of their first three Champions League games and will be desperate to take all three points when they host the Greek side on Tuesday evening.

"Olympiakos beat Atletico Madrid and Juventus in their two home games so we have to be fully focused on the job," Allegri said on Monday.

"The qualification for the next stage will almost certainly be decided during these 95 minutes. Then fair enough, anything can happen in the game of football but tomorrow, winning is vital.

"I expect them to play in the same way they did in Athens, as for us, we have to play in a different way, improving in respect to the technical aspect of the game.

"But we will not rush things, we have 95 minutes to win the game, we need to be patient and take full advantage of all the minutes available to take the result we want.

"Saying who will play now would be impossible because we still have a training session to do.

"We will assess Asamoah and Ogbonna and I will see who starts depending on how fit these two players are.

"If both of them fail to recover, Padoin can play on the wing. He did well against Empoli, he's a reliable lad so I'm not worried for his role.

"Morata did well at Empoli, he scored, but Llorente is fit, he's improving, it's another decision I will have to make tomorrow morning."
