Massimiliano Allegri eager to reach next round in the Champions League


Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri says the focus is on reaching the next round of the Champions League.

The Bianconeri opened a 14-point gap at the top of the Italian Serie A after Roma lost at home against Sampdoria on Monday night.

But Allegri insists the title race is still not over as his side prepare to take on Borussia Dortmund at the Westfalenstadion.

"We start with a 2-1 advantage, we know how difficult it will be but Borussia know that it will be difficult as well," Allegri said.

"It will hopefully be a beautiful game that will very unlikely finish 0-0. We have to score two goals to qualify.

"In a game like this an episode can be important, like the Chiellini slip in the first leg.

"We are here and we want and have to reach the next round. But we also have the Serie A to win despite the 14-point gap at the top. And also the Italian Cup, a tie which we can still recover.

"So at the moment our objective is to compete in all three competitions, we just have to be good in finishing the job in the Serie A and to reach the next round in the Champions League.

"As for the starting line-up, I still have doubts, I'm yet to decide [who will start]. But I will have to decide tomorrow since the game is in the evening."
