Allegri: ‘Real missing key player’

Max Allegri believes Real Madrid are missing their most important player, so Juventus can win the Champions League semi-final.

The first leg is on Tuesday evening at the Juventus Stadium in Turin, so the Coach sat down with JTV.

“When you play in a Champions League semi-final, your mind is never completely clear,” warned Allegri.

“You play with the awareness of your own strengths, the objective of reaching the Final and knowing you are among the top four in Europe.”

Apart from Cristiano Ronaldo, which player would Allegri like to remove from the Real squad?
“They’ve already removed him – Luka Modric. Real Madrid have improved a great deal under Carlo Ancelotti’s guidance.

“He brought so much international experience, won the 10th Champions League trophy and this year is back in the semi-final while in the running for the Liga.

“What shouldn’t Juve do? A lot of things. They are an extraordinary squad with so much technique and pace. We’ll need a great performance, two of them actually.”

Allegri was asked what he’ll say to his squad before going out on to the field.

“I’ll tell them we are one step away from an extraordinary moment and therefore must play it with a relaxed mind and aware of our strengths.”
