We Have To Be Brutal In Front Of Goal Says Juventus Coach Allegri

Coach of Juventus Massimiliano Allegri has said that his team needs to be fiendish if they are to beat Real Madrid in Saturday's Champions League final. Allegri said Real start as favourites but his team were capable of pulling off a surprise.

He said “We have worked hard all year and the wins this season have been all about reaching this game, but on Saturday we need to win and we need to understand when will be the moments to attack and when to defend. We have to have the belief that we can bring that cup home and we have to be fiendish to strike when Real offer us an opening. Two finals in three years is an important step but it is not enough. We have to win and we must be tough, technically and tactically. We aren't here to visit Cardiff - we came here to win and take that trophy back home. In 2015 we got to the final and deserved it but perhaps we didn't feel confident enough because we had come out of a number of years of struggling in the Champions League. We didn't expect to win but now it is different.”

Goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon says Saturday's game will have special personal significance as he approaches the end of his storied career. A world champion with Italy in 2006 and eight-time Serie A winner with Juventus, Buffon finished on the losing side in his two previous Champions League finals in 2003 and 2015.
