Juve is nearly at full strength for the Sevilla clash.
Italy’s Turin (Reuters) – With the absence of defender Gleison Bremer, Juventus coach Massimilano Allegri will have a complete roster to pick from for the first leg of their Europa League semifinal against Sevilla in Turin on Thursday.
The 26-year-old international from Brazil has missed three of Juventus’ past four Serie A games.
Bremer has a strain and won’t play tomorrow. Allegri stated during a press conference on Wednesday that the other players were in good condition.
In light of Sevilla’s illustrious history in this competition, which they have won a record six times, Allegri stated that his team will have to put up a fantastic display.
The entire team, especially the substitutes, will be crucial tomorrow, he stated. We must use the same strategy as in our previous games, which entails respecting our opponents and taking advantage of their vulnerabilities.
Allegri thinks his squad is developing.
“Juve has just been in two European finals, and we hope to go there as well. We now have the three most crucial weeks of all ahead of us, he said. We must follow through on our commitment to giving our all on the pitch and seeing where it leads.
Angel Di Maria, a winger, has a chance to win one of the few significant awards that have escaped him. It’s a trophy that I only ever used to play for Benfica once. I’m focused on the trophy I’m missing, but all trophies are significant to me, the Argentinean stated.
The 35-year-old Di Maria dismissed rumours regarding his future. I’m content here, and my family is too. We’re in discussions with the team, but at the moment I’m only thinking about Sevilla,” he stated. Coach Jose Luis Mendilibar of Sevilla claimed that his team was prepared for a tense battle against Juventus.
The secret will be maintaining composure at all times and understanding how to handle every minute of the game. We must maintain our composure and focus, he said.
“We know that on our day, we can beat any team, including Juventus.” On May 18, the second leg will take place.
