Match Preview


Sarri can approach in a more relaxed manner, as Juve have already qualified for the knockout stages of the competition in first place, with four wins from their five matches thus far. Bayer, though, will be going all out for the victory in a bid to overhaul Atletico Madrid and claim the second spot. They failed to win a single game in the first round and this has come back to bite them at a time when they are slowly finding their feet. Having defeated Bayern Munich last weekend, Leverkusen will be confident of a positive show against Juventus.

The onus will be on Kevin Volland, who has scored five goals and provided five more in the Bundesliga this season. He will look to improve his Champions League tally that currently reads one goal from five games.

Whereas, Adrien Rabiot is expected to be back for Juventus after a brief spell on the sidelines, as confirmed by Sarri himself. 

“The boys are very professional and they give full cooperation. Sometimes you can do everything you want and sometimes it can turn out not as we would like. Tomorrow we’ll see how we set up on the field. We have two midfielders. Rabiot can be at ease on the right and we have to see how he does after a long period of inactivity. He is coming back from an injury, we rely heavily on him. He has a high level of potential. He just needs to get his best physical condition: tomorrow he will play a part of the match.

"We are calm, we know where we need to improve and surely we are doing it. Triggering a spark depends on many factors, such as dribble at the right times and keeping possession at the right speed. Otherwise, it is sterile. For tomorrow’s game, I ask of the team that their motivation and mentality must never fall, especially in this type of challenge," stated the manager. 

But the Italian tactician is not yet ready to start with the trident of Paulo Dybala, Gonzalo Higuain and Cristiano Ronaldo in attack.

"It is only partly an experiment. We have already tried it. We can only play this squad in certain situations and we’ll see tomorrow”. 

Leverkusen have a tough task ahead of them, but it is not impossible. Sarri's Juventus is yet to find the rhythm which will fuel Leverkusen manager Peter Bosz's hopes of an upset.
