“We know it’s a cauldron and the fans are able to express all their emotion. Gigi Buffon’s response was emblematic when he said the fans don’t score goals,” Marotta told Sky Sport Italia on the touchline.

“We have players with a great deal of experience who know how to deal with these situations. We will play open and attacking football, as is Antonio Conte’s style.

“Galatasaray need a victory and we certainly won’t be playing for a draw. I hope it will be an entertaining game and that we get a positive result.”

There were concerns ahead of the match due to snow and even hail over Istanbul, but the situation appears to be calming down and the pitch is in good condition.
