Maurizio Sarri’s team triumphed at the national level and will not want to be less at the European level. They must overcome Lyon to advance in the Champions League.
After obtaining a new Scudetto, Juventus will face the challenge of turning his series against Olympique Lyon. Juve must win to continue the dream of achieving a title in Champions League after so many successes at the national level, and stop longing for that 2015 final that is increasingly distant.
La Vecchia Signora will host the French team in Turin on August 7 and must win if they want to go to Lisbon to continue in the competition. Those of Rudi García won 1-0 at home with a great defensive job that they will want to repeat in Italy to take care of the draw that makes them pass the round.
However, in this case, the Bianconeri will face the peculiarity that their rival has not played official competitions for more than three months, since the season was canceled in France. Maurizio Sarri must find a way to physically demand the rival in order to take advantage of his lack of shooting.
If they make it past the knockout stages, Serie A champions in the past nine seasons will face yet another difficult challenge. In Lisbon, a single match would collide with the winner of the crossing between Real Madrid and Manchester City.
