Juventus has received additional motivation in their efforts to win the Champions League this season. According to Didier Deschamps, La Vecchia Signora has a great opportunity to rule the Blue Continent.
Juventus’ dominance in Italy is beyond doubt. The team that Maurizio Sarri now cares for has continued to win Serie A since 2011/2012 or for eight consecutive seasons. But, this is not the case in Europe.
Juventus have just mastered the Champions League twice, where his last success occurred in 1995/1996. After that, they can be considered runner-up specialists. The Old Lady has actually entered the final five times, but during that time it was also stalled. That includes when defeated Real Madrid 1-4 in the 2016/2017 edition.
A bad record that could potentially end this season. Deschamps said that. The French national team coach hopes his former club can come out as champions. Moreover, Cristiano Ronaldo et al passed through the group stage well.
Deschamps said to Skysports that Juventus has started its journey in the Champions League like other teams. Winning is the main destination for them. They have carried this target for years.
Deschamps had filled the Juventus midfield for five seasons (1994-1999). And, he became part of the squad that successfully won the 1995/1996 Champions League. That is why he encouraged his successors at the Allianz Stadium to achieve similar achievements.
That hope might come true. Because Juventus fortune in the Champions League this season tends to improve. After winning Group D with a record of five wins and one draw, they only met Olympique Lyon in the last 16.
