Allegri, Buffon disagree on Juventus aims

08 December 2014, 15:54

ROME — Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri and captain Gianluigi Buffon appear to be in disagreement on how to approach Tuesday's match against Atletico Madrid.

A point will see Juve secure second place in Group A, and advance to the knockout round of the Champions League, while winning by a two-goal margin would earn the Bianconeri first place — leapfrogging Atletico in the process.

"We have to try and win by two goals," Allegri said of the match in Turin. "We want to win, advance and try to finish first."

Last season's runner-up Atletico leads the group with 12 points, Juventus is next with nine, Olympiakos has six and Malmo trails with three.

"You can believe in anything in life but I'm interested in advancing," said the 36-year-old Buffon, who has won just about everything in his glittered career except for the Champions League.

If Juventus loses, Olympiakos can finish second with a win at Malmo due to its head-to-head record against the Italian side.

Meanwhile, Malmoe can snatch third place and a Europa League spot with a win in Greece.
