The defense of the Italian champions is mainly enjoyed thanks to the cooperation of middle defenders Giorgio Chiellini (34) and Leonardo Bonucci (31).
"It's absolutely fantastic," said Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho (55) after the last match lost to Juventus with 0: 1.
The Italians, however, can feel confident with a goalkeeper like Wojciech Szczęsny behind him. Their co-operation works perfectly, so they have not missed a goal in the Champions League, and in the match with Valencia (2: 0) the Polish goalkeeper has defended the shot.
– He keeps on getting us constantly. Sometimes he shouts, sometimes gestures, but he needs it from the defenders – thinks Chiellini.
Today, the Italian champions are going to seal the offer to the Champions League finals 1/8. Paul Pogba returns to Torino (25 years) and Cristiano Ronaldo (33) will want to shoot my club. For many players this is an emotional competition – and for Szczesny, who, as a former footballer of Arsenal, is particularly fond of defeating Manchester United. Today he will have a great chance to take another fantastic Juventus night in the Champions League with a big opponent.
