Massimiliano Allegri: We are here to win and reach the Berlin final


Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri says there is no reason why his side cannot cause a major upset at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday night.

The Bianconeri have a 2-1 advantage from the first leg to defend with midfielder Paul Pogba expected to be fit after playing and scoring against Cagliari last Saturday.

"I expect a beautiful game," Allegri said this afternoon.

"As I said last week it's very unlikely for the game to finish goalless. I hope so, but I very much doubt it because Real Madrid is a team that scores many goals.

"I already cancelled what happened last week, tomorrow is a knockout game, we cannot expect to control the game from start to finish because it's impossible to do something like that away against Real Madrid.

"Motivation-wise, these are games that need no motivation speech. What we have to be good at is to go out there and be serene. Contrary to the Monaco game, where we could play for a 0-0 scoreline, we will have to score tomorrow.

"We have to play a good technical game in the offensive department, perfect maybe.

"We're 95 minutes away from Berlin so I see no reason not to believe [that we can reach the final]. It is an important objective, we are here, and ready to be in Berlin.

"As for [Paul] Pogba, he's fit and I believe he has a strong chance of being in the starting line-up."
