Massimiliano Allegri optimistic ahead of Monaco second leg


Coach Massimiliano Allegri says Juventus have to score away from home against Monaco if they are to reach the semi-final of the Champions League.

Arturo Vidal's penalty was enough for the Bianconeri to win and keep a clean sheet against Leonardo Jardim's men on Tuesday night but the Italian is wary of the threat Monaco will pose at the Stade Louis II on April 22.

"It's a good result, we didn't concede which is a small advantage [ahead of the second leg]," Allegri told Sky Sport Italy.

"It's normal [to be under pressure], it's a quarter final game and you're favourite to make it through.

"The second leg will be a different game, it will not be easy but we now know them better. They are strong, they don't attack in numbers but they still do it well.

"Initially we rushed our game, struggling when they attacked on the counter.

"[Andrea] Pirlo did well, considering he was out for 50 days. Set-pieces are important in these type of games and Andrea can make the different in that department.

"Also, considering the game was almost always in their half, long balls are important, in fact the penalty came from one of his long balls.

"I'm optimistic but we have to score away from home. They are a complicated squad [to play against], funnily enough it was easier against Borussia Dortmund because of their style of play."
