Massimiliano Allegri: A positive result against Manchester City could completely change our situation


Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri wants his side to get back on winning terms starting from tomorrow's Champions League game against Manchester City.

The Bianconeri endured a terrible start to the new campaign as they suffered two defeats in the Serie A.

But they will be hoping to take all three points when they take on the Citizens away from home.

"We need to stop the rot and a positive result here could completely change our situation," Allegri told reporters.

"Tomorrow's is the first of six group matches and our aim is to reach the knockout stages.

"We'll need to show plenty of intensity and courage and also be at the races from a technical standpoint. A focused display will be required against one of the strongest teams in Europe.

"I have five midfielders available and we'll see if I go with three or four – I won't be revealing my team just yet. I need to have a good think about things because Saturday's game was an energy-sapping one.

"Hernanes played well [against Chievo], seeing as he hadn't featured in a competitive game for a while, as did Alex Sandro. [Juan] Cuadrado also looked good, it's important for us to play to his strengths and give him the right support."
