Juventus: ‘It’s important to win the title’

Sep 19, 2021 News

Juventus will play Atalanta in the Champions League on Sunday, and the Giallorossi will try to reach the final after winning four consecutive league titles and two consecutive Serie A titles. 

Juventus will travel to Italy on Wednesday to face Atalantans Bologna, who are third in Serie A, after being runners-up in the Serie B table. 

Boca Juniors, which were runners-on in the table last season, have been knocked out of the Champions league by Roma and Lazio in the past two seasons, respectively. 

The Bianconeri, who beat Roma 4-0 in the previous round, are currently top of the table, and have scored 12 goals in their last nine games. 

Atalanta will be without midfielder Giuseppe Nesta for the match, who is suspended after his tackle on Gianluigi Donnarumma in the 4-1 win at Brescia on Wednesday. 

Milan have not lost to Atalanti in the Europa League since March 2010. 

“Atalantas game is the first match we have to play against Milan,” said head coach Mario Mandzukic after the match.

“They are the champions of the Europa league. 

Their game is a real derby for us and I am very happy to be playing against them. 

They will be challenging for a top-four place. 

This is our first Europa League match.” 

Giorgio Chiellini is suspended for the first leg due to a thigh injury, while Milan have lost four of their last five Serie A games.
