MONTELLA ADVISES JUVENTUS TO PRIOROTISE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE
Juventus should focus their attention on the Champions League because Serie A is as good as won, according to AC Milan head coach Vincenzo Montella.
Milan travel to Turin for a crucial Serie A contest on Friday, with their opponents sitting eight points clear of Roma at the top of the table.
Montella said at his pre-match media conference: “If I could give them some advice, I would say they should focus on the Champions League, since they have almost won the Scudetto!
“Will they be distracted by competing for three competitions? They have won a lot in the last few years, they are used to it and they will feed on it. I don’t think they will be distracted by the Champions League.
“In the league, they are almost unbeatable. We have to focus on ourselves and give everything we have.
“I don’t like to talk about luck, we have to play at our best, with great hunger. Juve are really strong, they can dominate the game and score at the right moment. And the Juventus Stadium gives them another boost.
“It won’t be a final, but the attitude must be that of a final. The important thing is to play without fear, otherwise we would have no hope.
“Three points against Juventus count for the same as three points with Chievo, though it would help us get a great lift in the table.
