Massimiliano Allegri wary of threat from Dortmund's offensive department


Coach Massimiliano Allegri says Juventus must not concede a goal in the first leg of their last-16 Champions League clash with Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday.

Having finished second in Group A, the Bianconeri host Jurgen Klopp's in-form side at home in the first leg and the Italian says the priority is to keep a clean sheet at the Juventus Stadium.

"It's not the most important game of the season," Allegri said.

"And that is because there are many more games yet to be played as well as the fact that it's a Last 16 game not a final.

"They [Borussia Dortmund] are going through a positive patch but so are we so we need to be patient because it's an important game.

"They are not superior to us but they are quality, they are a technical side and have pace in the offensive department.

"We are aware of the fact that we have a good chance of making it through [to the Last 8] but we have to respect the opposition because they have done exceptionally well in Europe in the last few seasons.

"As we play at home, the objective will be not to concede goals."
