Alessio calls on Juventus to replicate Chelsea display

The Bianconeri assistant coach was delighted with his side's performance on Tuesday, but has made it clear they have not yet finished the job
Angelo Alessio has called upon Juventus to replicate their display in the 3-0 win over Chelsea when they face Shakhtar Donetsk in their final Champions League group stage encounter.

The Serie A champions need just a point in Ukraine to book their ticket for the knockout phase of the competition, and Alessio has insisted that Juve need another stellar performance in order to achieve just that.

"Our last game will be extremely important as we are not through yet, but we will play the same way we did tonight," Juve's assistant coach said at a press conference.

"We like to play football – we did everything we could to win, and were rewarded with an important victory. Both teams have great players and it was a beautiful game.

"I have to compliment the whole team on this game. We wanted to maintain a high pace over the 90 minutes, we wanted to force them to defend.

"Of course we were playing against a big team like Chelsea so it's inevitable that they had a few chances as well."

Juventus currently sit second in Group E with nine points from five games, trailing leaders Shakhtar by one point.
