Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri, who will face Paris Saint-Germain this evening in the Champions League at the Parc des Princes, revealed that the French club has a remarkable strength that makes it necessarily the favorite for the current version of C1.
The Italian coach said he was excited about the idea of playing such a game, while he feared the attacking trio of Paris Saint-Germain (Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, Lionel Messi): “These are great matches to play because you are playing against some of the best opponents in Europe, including Paris Saint-Germain which is, for me, the first favourite. We have to play at their level. Let’s say (Lionel) Messi, Neymar and (Kylian) Mbappe are tall. So much so that when they have the ball they can always find the right place or the right space on the field. They are exceptional in that regard. We have to be aggressive and not give them space when they have the ball. And when we have the ball, we have to do our best. And we will do that” .
Paris Saint-Germain is my favorite, but not the only one
Juventus, led by Massimiliano Allegri, started its championship poorly, occupying seventh place in the Italian league standings (5 matches, 2 wins, 3 draws). So it seems that the Italian club is the outside party in the match against Paris Saint-Germain, which presents a very effective and effective offensive fleet at the beginning of the season, in L1 (6 matches, 24 goals scored).
If Massimiliano Allegri cites PSG as “No. 1 Favorite” As for the Champions League, we can also believe that the defending champions, Real Madrid, will not be far from winning the final, just like Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City and Bayern Munich’s Julian Nagelsmann. It’s up to Christophe Galtier’s men to dress up as his favorite, from Tuesday evening, against Juventus Turin, at home.
