Allegri admits: We miss Ronaldo at Juventus

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri said today, Monday, that his team is facing an important test in its battle with Chelsea to take the top spot in Group H in the Champions League, but admitted that “Juve” is still struggling to score goals since the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Italian team will move to London after having already qualified for the final price after winning 4 consecutive matches and winning the full mark, and is 3 points ahead of the Premier League leaders.

But the “Blues” – who lost 1-0 to Juventus in Turin last September – want to exclude Allegri’s team from the top of the group, and he may restore his record deal, Romelu Lukaku, after recovering from injury to help against Juventus.

Allegri said – in a press conference – “We will play tomorrow’s match in order to decide the top of the group against the leaders of the English Premier League and the holders of the European Champions League. In the presence of Romelu, they will play differently. Without him, they will rely on counter-attacks by relying on players who are characterized by speed. It will be a test Whatever ours.”

Juventus is suffering locally this season, winning 6 of 13 league matches, including a 2-0 victory over Lazio in Rome last Saturday, to occupy the eighth place in the competition.

Paulo Dybala is the team’s top scorer this season with six goals in all competitions, but Allegri said that the Argentine international may not participate against Chelsea because he is still suffering from injury.

The Italian coach called on his players to be more effective in attack, as the team continued to struggle to score goals since the departure of Ronaldo, the league’s top scorer last season, and his move to Manchester United last summer.

“We have to improve our finishing,” Allegri said. “We create good chances but make mistakes in the final touch.”

He concluded, “Everywhere Cristiano went, he was always the top scorer. We have many players who can score goals, but at the moment we can’t find them.”
