thumbnail Hello,

The Turin side's assistant trainer is full of respect for the Farum side ahead of Tuesday's Champions League match

Juventus coach Angelo Alessio has insisted the Serie A champions will have to be on top of their game against Nordsjaelland if they are to get a good result in Tuesday's Champions League encounter.

The Danish powerhouse have lost their opening two games, but Alessio has nothing but respect for Nordsjaelland as Juve look to record their first win of the group stages.

"We’ve got great respect for Nordsjaelland. They play an attractive style of football and keep good possession," the 47-year-old said at a press conference.

"They’ve got technically gifted players and their strength could also be seen against Chelsea in spite of their defeat.

"Chelsea scored three of their four goals here very late in the match, so we know it is not going to be easy for us. Nordsjaelland have been playing some fine football."

Tuesday's match in Copenhagen kicks off 20:45CET.
