Juventus coach motivated after Champions League last-16 draw

Rome,  Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri has said that his team has been driven by ambition to achieve big things, as he commented on facing Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Champions League round of 16.

Having recorded its best ever start to the Serie A season, collecting 46 out of 48 possible points, Juventus has the continental club elite title in its sight boosted by the arrival of Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo during the summer transfer window, reports Efe news.

“Who has ambition, has no fear,” Allegri tweeted after the draw was conducted earlier on Monday.

Under Allegri, Juventus has qualified twice for the Champions League final, in the 2014-15 and 2016-17 seasons, losing to Barcelona and Real Madrid, respectively.

Atletico Madrid will host Juventus in the first leg on February 20, while the second leg is to be played on March 12.
