Massimiliano Allegri eyes two-goal margin win against Atletico


Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri says his team will be targeting a two-goal margin win when they host Atletico Madrid on Tuesday night.

Wins against Olympiakos and Malmo in their last two games of the Champions League saw the Bianconeri keep the pressure on the Spaniards with Allegri determined to win the group to avoid tough opposition in the next round.

"Tomorrow's objective is to make it through the group stage," Allegri told reporters during Monday's press conference.

"Clearly, we will do our best to win the game with at least a two-goal margin but it's not easy because they concede very little.

"It will be a difficult game but we should not fail the target to qualify and to win the group so as to avoid tough teams in the next round.

"I'm yet to decide who to start with [in attack] tomorrow. Either [Fernando] Llorente or [Alvaro] Morata will start."

The manager was also full of praise for Atletico manager Diego Pablo Simeone who was named as one of the three finalists for the 2014 Best Coach award.

"He's doing a terrific job," Allegri said.

"Winning the Spanish Liga against two giants of the game like Barcelona and Real Madrid is not easy.

"And it's also not easy to reach the final of the Champions League. He deserves the award but so does [Carlo] Ancelotti who is doing exceptionally well at Real Madrid.

"And so does the German national coach [Joachim Low], all three deserve to win the award for the work they have done."
