Zenit St Petersburg coach Sergej Semak said Juventus are ‘designed to achieve results’ and claimed it’s ‘difficult to predict’ the match on Wednesday. ‘It’s a tough and complicated match for us’.
Juventus have won their first two games and have yet to concede in the Champions League this term and Semak predicts a tough task for his men in Russia.
“It’s difficult to predict what the match against the Bianconeri will be like,” Semak said at a press conference. “It’s a tough and complicated match for us.
“They play well in both phases and always achieve results. We will do our best, we prepare and train to score points. They represent a machine of results, their game is aggressive, attentive to details in defence and attack.
“They counterattack well too. Everything is designed to achieve results. I like several players of them: [Alvaro] Morata, [Leonardo] Bonucci and [Giorgio] Chiellini.
“Giorgio is the soul of Juventus, you cannot fail to mention him.”
