Juventus Coach Massimiliano Allegri believes this season “will go down in history” ahead of Saturday’s Champions League final.

The Old Lady face Barcelona in Berlin on Saturday with both clubs looking to secure a treble, having won the league title and domestic cup in Italy and Spain respectively. 

“This season will go down in history,” Allegri said at a pre-match Press conference on Monday.

“It’s not often a team gets to this point in three separate competitions. Winning the Champions League final would be a more than extraordinary feat.

“It’d be the perfect way to round off a magnificent season. The final could go to penalties, even though I think that’s unlikely. We’ll be prepared for any eventuality.

The Bianconeri Coach acknowledged the difficulty of facing Barcelona and in particular Lionel Messi, and outlined how his side will approach the match.

“Barcelona play a different brand of football to that of other teams,” he said.

“We’ll need to be compact and keep it tight. We need to focus exclusively on knuckling down and working hard, not on what might happen.

“Marking Messi while he moves is a near impossible task. We must be smart in working around him.

“We’re aware of how good we are and know we’re capable of giving a decent account of ourselves.

“We know we’ll have some decent spells in the game. We must be calm and avoid letting anxiety creep in.

“There’s a great mood in the camp and only five days to go. Let’s see if we’re able to make this season even more extraordinary.”
