Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci has stressed his side must perform at their best to overcome Nordsjaelland in the Champions League.
Serie A champions Juve are under pressure to win the Group E clash on Wednesday having drawn their opening three matches of the group stage.
“It’s a game that needs to be won, just like all the others,” Bonucci told reporters.
“Failure to win would place us in the Europa League or even see us go out of Europe altogether.
“Not qualifying could also have an impact on the rest of our season. We’re approaching the clash on the back of three draws, meaning [a victory] is the only objective we’re aiming for.”
Shakhtar Donetsk lead Group E on seven points, with Chelsea a point back in second and Juve third on three points. Danish champions Nordsjaelland round out the group with one point.
