Hjulmand: Nordsjaelland has a chance against Juventus

The 40-year-old coach is aware of the difficult task at hand, but still is retaining hope of causing an upset when his side takes on the Italian powerhouse.
Nordsjaelland trainer Kasper Hjulmand is eagerly anticipating the Champions League Group E match at home against Juventus, and hopes his side can pull off an upset against the Serie A champion.

The Danes were beaten 2-0 in their opening game against Shakhtar, before recording a 4-0 loss versus Chelsea in their second game, but the 40-year-old is confident his side can do better against Juve.

"If we can improve as much for this match as we did between our first game at Shakhtar Donetsk and the one against Chelsea, we have a chance. We did a lot of things right against Chelsea," he told reporters at a press conference.

"Juventus do not give many chances away so we have to be clinical in front of goal. I rate them as one of the best teams in the world right now, but we believe we can surprise them if we give our all. We are looking forward to this match as if it were Christmas Eve."
