Andrea Pirlo hails Juventus Performance

Wed 02 December 2020 | 23:41

Juventus manager Andrea Pirlo praises his side’s performance over the game against Dynamo Kiev and feels ‘ready’ to take on Barcelona.

Juventus

beat their Ukrainian opponent on Wednesday in Turin with 3 goals and conceding none. Federico Chiesa, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Alvaro Morata scored for the Italian club.

“I’ve never seen a team dominate for 90 minutes, especially not in the Champions League, so there is going to be some defending to do,” the coach told Sky Sport Italia.

“I am pleased with the performance and we had the right psychological approach. Even if we are already qualified, we must always play to win, so I saw the right team performance and it was a positive sign we needed for ourselves.”

Pirlo is satisfied with Alvaro Morata and Federico Chiesa and knows them as important players for the team.

“Morata arrived very young at Juventus, he returned from his experiences in Madrid and London a more mature person and player. He feels happy and free of pressure, so that helps anyone give their best.

“We wanted him at all costs and are very happy to have him.”

Chiesa not only scored a goal, but effectively created the other two as well.

“I am happy for Federico, as he’d been looking for a goal for some time and I told him he didn’t always need me to indicate the run he had to make to finish off the move. I think he needed this goal.”

Juventus can take first place in Group G from Barcelona in their match against each other in the Champions League final fixture, but they have to win the game with 3 goals difference.
