thumbnail Hello,

Amauri has underlined the importance of the forthcoming fixture in Israel, indicating that the weekend's match should be consigned to the hands of history...

Juventus striker Amauri has told his team-mates to forget about their aberration against Napoli ahead of the Champions League clash against Maccabi Haifa.

"This is an important game for our run in Europe," the Brazilian told the press in Turin's Caselle Airport.

"We have to focus now on the the game against Maccabi."

The striker has insisted that this term does not necessarily need to be another failure in terms of Serie A success.

"We are still bitter about the defeat to Napoli, but nothing is lost. We can still challenge for the title but we have to make up ground," added the hitman.

Amauri also reflected on the red card he was shown against Napoli. Replays showed he did nothing wrong but was sent off because the referee believed he had kicked out at an opposition player.

"It was an exaggeration," concluded the Juve man.

Meanwhile, the Old Lady have now taken off for Tel Aviv after a baggage strike at the airport delayed their flight for over two hours. The flight became airborne at 12:06 CET.
