Angelo Alessio has called on Juventus to try and replicate their performance from their 3-0 Champions League win over Chelsea.

The Serie A champions now sit second in Group E with nine points from five matches and need just a point against Shakhtar Donetsk in their final group stage clash to book their ticket for the knockout phase of the competition.

Alessio insists that Juventus need another stellar performance in order to achieve just that and has warned his team against complacency when they travel to Ukraine.

“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 trail leaders Shakhtar by one point on the Champions League table, with Chelsea in third place.
