Juventus will host Manchester United during the week in the UEFA Champion’s league in Turin. The Old Lady triumph over the Red Devils 1-0 at the Old Trafford thanks to a Dybala goal early on in the first half.
However with the reverse fixture coming to Turin in few days’ time, Juve boss Massimiliano Allegri seems unmoved by the imminent arrival of Manchester united to the Turin and has revealed that club will go on with its set of players.
The Italian tactician also confirmed that Ronaldo will start while decision will be made by the manager between Paulo Dybala, Mario Mandzukic and Douglas Costa.
Chiellini and Federico have been ruled out of the contest but Khedira and Mandzukic have both returned.
Allegri wary about the threat posed by Napoli and Inter in the title race has stated that the Old lady cannot afford to drop points or lose their unbeaten run of form now.
“It won’t be easy, it never is easy to win and we all saw that against Empoli where we struggled, because we started well and then fell asleep,” said Allegri of last week’s league match which Juventus won thanks to a Ronaldo second-half brace. “We can’t afford to drop points because Inter and Napoli are behind us. “If you concede more than 30 goals then you won’t be winning the title so tomorrow we have to keep a clean sheet, so let’s beat Cagliari and then we can think about Manchester United.”
The Old Lady were held to a 1-1 draw by Genoa in their last home game and Allegri added: “We need to get back to winning ways in our stadium in the league. “We have the chance to secure (Champions League) qualification and then we go to AC Milan before the international break. We have a nice week ahead of us.”
